Well, you did it again, Dolly. Not only did you write an excellent poem,
but you invented it! You are a woman of many talents. I'm don't think
I could write an Awdl sonnet, seems so complicated.

A teaching moment and the pattern to write it. I liked how it flowed. I do not know a thing about poetry, but loved how you explained your technique.
Once I read the notes; read it again as a sonnet. It's rhyming scheme made it flow. Now I know what a sonnet.

I have this picture in my head of getting a cup of coffee; sitting on a bench hearing the bird calls as the sun reaches for the sky.

So the awdl sonnet is your creation? I thought it was a Welsh creation. I love internal rhyme, to me, they help a poem sound more natural (in spite of the contrivance!). So I may try my hand at one some day. However, I am just beginning to master the basic sonnet form.

    Yes I created it and you don?t have to be welsh to create a welsh form, ha ha ha, thank you for your review, love Dolly x

reply by Darlene Franklin on 20-Nov-2019
    `haha, I meant I thought it was a traditional Welsh sonnet form, not a new creation. Thanks for the review!

What a wonderful read, if I had to ask something it would be, in the third stanza why the word "braves" is not (brave) as to me this would hold the same meaning in this sentence, while rhyme and flow would continue, I am just being me and trying to learn, (not this form) but words in particular, another excellent sonnet, I love reading these****kahpot

    Thank you for your suggestion and I shall certainly consider that as I think both ?brave? and ?braves? work. I appreciate your wonderful review, love Dolly x

This new old revised Awdl form seems to be over my head, and when I read that your words are enlightened by a high-flying kite, prompted by your love of sonnets, I find myself scratching my head. Well, figuratively.

So, what chance have I to offer a meaningful review? I sense there's quality in this poem, so I might as well give it a fiver, and score my paltry 52-member cent-bribe for my two cents nobody asked for, and see if there's anything else out there for me to learn.
:)

    You made me smile Don, this, of course, is just an example of the form and how it can be used and doesn?t really tell a tale, you?ll have to wait for other posts to be enlightened, thank you for your review and spend the 52 cents wisely, love Dolly x

reply by Ogden on 20-Nov-2019
    If I had known it was your poem, Dolly, I might not have been so cavalier, but, on the other hand, I might have thought from your example, the new order is forget the real sonnet and make up my own. Everybody seems tobe doing it But, I guess I'll just stick to my shaggy doggerel.

I am in awe of your Awdl Dawdle Warble! Surely a description that even Dr Seuss could not improve upon! I feel sure that Jim will be mightily impressed, too!

This awdl sonnet, The Awdl Dawdle Warble, is an example of the so-titled poem and makes a point to eliminate many who will not want this challenge. The Welsh are nuts.

Bloody 'ell byt! What 'ave we got b'yur then? Fancy yewerself as Welsh is it? This what I call bluddy creative, woman. You 'ave amalgamated two of yewer favourite poetical forms like into one single poem, incorporating the best feat-yewers of both forms. Indeed to goodness myn, this is something speshull.

    Yow lyke it this ?un then? He he he, well I just had to do it! As you say, my two favourite forms rolled into one, now I am truly happy! He he he, thank you for your six big stars, much appreciated, love Dolly x

Love it! "let ev'ry Awdl warble into words." You've used the sonnet to talk about your latest new format to write it - the awdl gynt and gave us lots of fun with the rhymes! I think the Bard would be pleased.
