Great entry for the Sonnet Poem contest. I love your approach of writing a sonnet about a sonnet. Very clever and it taught me about what are the strictures of a properly composed sonnet. Well done and best wishes.

You lay the box in such distinctive terms,
at our feet so that we can play the game
our feeble efforts at the skill affirms
that with your help we hope to do the same

I had to give this one six! I absolutely loved the wording and flow it has as a sonnet! You nailed it right on the head esp. with the ending "To bleed immortal ink, as mortal men", that puts writing all in perspective as does the whole poem. Nicely done!! I am a new fan!!!

What a great look at what a poem actually looks like, probably to the uninitiated, unintentional enthusiast! It bears testimony to the fact that you can cleverly take a look through something outside of yourself! Whether intentionally or otherwise you've remained in character! Well done with this one! Blessings, Roy.

Good use of the sonnet rhyme scheme. Good end rhyming. Good alliteration with sonnet/simply/stated...through/three...couplet/caught...sonnet/storm...tempest/tethered...will/we...mortal/men. Good rhythm and flow. Good complimentary photo followed by a clear message.

If there was ever a six-worthy poem, this is it. You absolutely explain the technical aspects of the sonnet, and do it in such an enjoyable manner. Congrats!

Clever double-meaning title.

Here's a sixer, David, for the originality and making the reader aware (if they want to bothered to be) in a fun and poetic way.

I'm still not a fan of extra syllables in end-line words like 'feathered/teathered', but appreciate that's just a matter of taste.

I'm showing my ignorance here, but what does 'august' in the context of 'bard' mean?

Great stuff!

Cheers, Ted

    Thanks so much, Ted, for that sixer, my brother, and for your kind comments.

    You need to get used to those extra syllables, my friend. They're all over the place in sonnets, Shakespearean or otherwise.

    I'm not sure of your question, but 'august' means 'held in great esteem', and 'Bard' just refers to Shakespeare himself. Does that make sense? Thanks again, my friend.

    D'OH - sorry, David - for some reason I was thinking of 'august', the month. Cheers, Ted

My goodness. A perfect sonnet, which analyzes and explains the sonnet, AND echoes Shakespeare (puns on "Will" were, of course, his trademark!) My good friend, you are up there with those 17th-century wordsmiths!

solid rhyming in excellent sonnet format
excellent use of consistent iambic meter and enjambment to create and sustain flow
good alliteration and metaphor in a sonnet is a storm
and tempest tethered
good turn in the third quatrain
a most thoughtful look at the sonnet in excellent sonnet form :-) Brooke

The poet gently dips the tip in ink,
and with his magic, spells a sonnet's poise.
I dearly wish the wishing wells that drink
my wishful thoughts could write as well, the boys.

His hand it seems to me at birth, control
a mind, full of the most exquisite words
that blend as if an angel on the dole,
had clipped its wings to write the songs for birds

I could go on forever writing this.
Alas my dog is barking at the door.
His bladders full, hes desperate for a wee!
My hat is taken off to you once more :)


Fabulous!
I don't know what else to say

:)
