Chapter 10003 of the book Get Well, Brooke!
A Get Well Wish for Brooke (adewpearl)
"Of Dandelions and Fairies" by mountainwriter49
Of Dandelions and Fairies

This week, I’ve read your verse in search of light
that will defeat these longest and most dark
of nights since learning why your quill’s not inked
the parchment stacked upon your writing desk.
       Oh, dear Brooke, how I miss your dandeli’ns
       that bloom so brightly ‘gainst  Spring’s verdant grass,
       and fairies who leap from the wood’s domain
       to cast their glitt'ring dust upon my eyes.
Despite your absence these past weeks, I know
you’ll heal and soon reclaim your pen and share
poetic art so eloquently wrought
with most inspiring and enchanting verse.
        And thus the challenge one of age must face,
       but with His grace one always perseveres.

The book continues with Ten Rugged Rocks. We will provide a link to it when you review this below.

Author Notes
Poetic Form:
Blank Verse Shakespearean Sonnet. This form follows the Shakespearean form except for the end-line rhyme pattern. In blank verse, there is neither end-line nor internal-line rhyme Blank verse is generally written in iambic pentameter, which this one is except for several areas of metrical substitution in line 5 (trochee and spondee for first two feet). Blank verse was popularized by Marlowe and perfected by Shakespeare during the 16th and early 17th centuries.

I am most grateful to Brooke for teaching me how to write Shakespearean sonnets.

Thank you for reading my poetry.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
