Were I a bird, would I sure fly that high?
As high as eyes yours can now see, my mate.
And from above would I see this sea’s fate?
That flows illumined by the stars in sky?
Do you think I would find out what is sly
by seeing through the sky, the strange estate?
Or ween do you that I just might predate
With wings that could engulf the worlds too nigh?
English sonnets generally possess an element of love or romance, but as has already been stated, modern sonnets can deal with social issues, politics, nature, and even death of a loved one. Be that as it may, English sonnets are phrased in iambic pentameter, which is a line of verse with five metrical feet, each consisting of one short (or unstressed) syllable followed by one long (or stressed) syllable. The sing-song effect generated by English sonnets is by reason of this very meter.
That man with the brown hat did speak his mind;
I heard him out, told him that he was kind.
But he then shouted,
slapped me and pouted;
‘I am freakish,’ he said. ‘That now d’you find?’
the true track
tell tales too tough;
Talk turkey to them,
train them to tell those truths
that treat their troubling thinkings.
He takes many forms,
binding Himself to laws,
laws that govern all the worlds.
Thunder and lightning
wreak havoc right across town
as I stand dumbstruck
Upon being asked to give a glimpse of the life he had led before turning into a full-time writer, Lovejoy divulges that college was a place he never went to. ‘Notwithstanding, I have worked in the criminal justice system. First as a cop and then a private investigator where I specialized in criminal defence and helping the families of missing persons. I spent two years as an investigator for the defence team of a federal capital offence case,’ he explains.
Variety thou adoreth, thousand-named.
With no beginning or end floweth thou,
creating great creators who are famed.
Talking about his very first book Zumanity, which he started working upon two years ago, the 26-year-old, who often jokes his blue veins are filled with ink, says, ‘Every zombie story has the one character that holds onto its humanity for a bit longer than everyone else. But what if that continued for a longer period of time? The main character in Zumanity falls to her death shortly after being bitten by a zombie, so she has an odd transformation.’
Clouds drift like spirits
hankering after links lost;
And I watch them dance.
