I'm amazed two sonnets all done originally as reviews, well done with that, and I recognised the descriptions of the itchy eyes etc. It's been a bad flu season here and this morning I have the sneezes, too much gardening yesterday. Off for a Telfast now, lol
cheers,
valda

    Neither of them really reviews Dolly's originals but we do tend to bounce off each other's ideas. It can be quite fun. thanks for reviewing.

"Sonnet Atishoo!", is an extremely well-written and entertaining piece. This talented poet's work was a pleasure to both read and review. To me, this is a six, but unfortunately I'm never given enough of them! I look forward to seeing your next post.

    Thank you Duchess. It is encouraging to know that even the aristocracy suffer from sixual poverty here just like the rest of us.

Pantygynt, an enjoyable modern day sonnet indeed. Sewn together with good rhyme, this well well thought out piece with clever third stanza and cheeky ending was a pleasure to read. Bless you. ~DD... you did sneeze right?

I absolutely love this! It's so cleverly written! I'm printing out a copy to put on my wall... yup... it's making the wall... ;) This is so very funny... I think you need to make this into posters and put it up in random places. Hahahahaha! :)

This is wonderful. I just love how you described a summer cold, or allergies. This made me laugh. It wasn't suppose to, oh well it did. I thought is was cute, and the flow made it even more adorable, and cute. Well done.

Entertaining and expertly written and you throw in some humor and medical advice, too! I will have to find out what inspired this little gem in Dolly's portfolio.

What a fun write and you made me laugh with this one, Jim. A great parody on Shakespeare and his style. Good job on the style and presentation..... I know this is a lame review, but I am trying to say... its a hoot... very humorous. A fun read!!

It is true that some would deny they are sick by saying they have allergies. You define the sneeze and symptoms well of both allergies and the flu.
And it is best for a sick person to stay home to get well and keep all
others around them well.
Maybe the first line of the second stanza would be more grammatically correct if it read 'Sometimes from itchy eyes water would stream'.
Keep writing
Joan

    Thank you for treating this nonsense with the full majesty of seriousness.

    I used 'sometime' as does Shakespeare in his Sonnet 18. 'Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines...'

    You're welcome. Sickness should always be taken seriously even when you laugh at it.

This work has reached the exceptional level
Full many a spurious poem I have seen
Flatter the Stratford bard in parody.
Lacing his golden verse with things obscene.
Replacing love with coarse vulgarity.

Anon these shameless varmints will deride,
With cheapened cracks, the most celestial gem.
I was forlorn, in fact - damn me - I cried
When with a sneeze, one covered Will with phlegm.

But now I must confess, for what it's worth,
That all those tears that fell upon my cheek
Were less of outrage than they were of mirth.
I laughed until I cried. My knees were weak.

Yes, Jim for this I love, no whit distaineth;
Puns are oft the go, when the lesson waneth.

    This sonnet thou should'st definitely post,
    If thou canst find the wherewithal in dollars
    (members for the use of) at no cost
    In proper money, but in time. It follows

    thou hast laboured far too long at it,
    yet found dark ladies to end couplet's rhyme,
    when weak thy knees had grown, though strong thy wit.
    Like Will, and I, the rules thou would'st entwine

    But contest judges, this technique eschew
    and of fair-mindedness they lose possession.
    Ten syllables a line or else DQ,
    no more or less allowed -- that's my impression.

    Belief in blind obedience to rules
    will never poets make -- engenders fools!


    Thanks so much for a marvelous review and the stella sestet.
