Only somebody like Shakespeare can get away for writing sonnets to men... or little boys. And even then he was payed for it.

:rofl:

:wink:

It'd just be awkward writing one for a guy methinks.

It sounds to me Ariel like Magus doesn't see your beauty, seductiveness and wonderful spirit as a good reason to write a sonnet for you. Whatever a sonnet is.....Your too good for it. @};-

A sonnet is a 14 line poem written in iambic pentameter (10 syllables per line in a series of one unstressed syllable followed by one stressed). There's a turn, a change in perspective, located in different places depending on what kind of sonnet it is. Italian Sonnets have a rhyme scheme of abba,bccb,cde,cde with the turn located after the first two quatrains. English Sonnets have a rhyme scheme of abab,cdcd,efef,gg with the turn located after the first three quatrains. There are other variations on rhyme scheme and occasionally even on the pentameter (rarely you will find something like unstress-stress-stress-unstress or stress-unstress-unstress-stress).

Maybe I used the wrong words... I'll write you more if you ask very nicely.

Anybody else, of the feminine persuasion, want a sonnet?

Sounds way too complicated for my liking. I like things that just flow from the heart, not writing a poem that you have to research for four years before you write it. :D Of course coming from the paranormal thread, I don't think many people would imagine that I like it simple...lmao.

Hey Magus,

I would love to see one of these sonnets....even if its not for me....lol. Could you post one here? Thanks.
