Sonnetino: 9 Jul 26 Poetry Potlatch Challenge
"The Goodly Man" by mountainwriter49
The Goodly Man
It seems that we expect apologies
for present and our past inequities,
so much so they’re just meaningless decrees.
So many hypocrites will speak the words,
but ‘tis the goodly man who’s rarely heard.

10 July 2016


The book continues with The Granite Stone. We will provide a link to it when you review this below.

Author Notes
Sonnetino. This poetic form was created by fellow FanStorian Jyoti (lightlink). The poem consist of a tercet and couplet, both written in iambic pentameter. The tercet follows an A rhyme pattern while the couple follows a B rhyme pattern. Importantly, the tercet presents a scene or conflict and the couplet offers resolution and/or an optional turn.

The 9 July 2016 Poetry Potlatch challenge to write a Sonnetino about an apology, either given or received, accepted or rejected.

Goodly = yes, I meant goodly and not Godly. Goodly as used in this poem's context is an archaic meaning for the word and means 'of good quality.'

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