This is my attempt to write a sonnet. I am thinking of writing every form of poetry. This being the first form, I am posting it. Also I have made an unsuccessful attempt to write it in EModE just to make justice to this beautiful form of poetry, to that time, to Shakespeare and to all other current and past Sonnet writers! Forgive me, as I am just a learner!
The first 4 lines introduces the whole poetry being the conversation of a Warrior leader and his wife. It also has few lines mentioning about the other woman just to create the feeling of jealousy. Sonnets are generally on the topic of love, but this is more about trust, faith and wishing ‘all the best’ 😛 Also with a limited vocabulary it was not possible for me to use rhyming words.. so no ‘a-b-a-b’ pattern is followed..
Thou hast hir voice, thou hast hir words
Thou hast everything, thou be’st hir?
What hath she, that thou hast not?
What hath she, that I not got?
Peple wilt say,bycause thou hast beauty
I shalt say that thou be’st beyond describere
Thou knowest that I am all thine
Thou knowest that still thou be’st not mine
Thou goest, and thou conquer the whole world
May thou be victorious,and come back to celebrare
Thou shalt hast the glory,thou shalt hast the pride
Thou shalt hast the throne,I wilt abide.
I ask O Lord who is mightier than thou..
Whose power is holier than thou..
