June 1-30 Challenge – Day 14 – Fourteen Line Poem


Day 14 Fourteen Line Poem

“June 14, 1578. Fourteen-year-old William Shakespeare wrote his first sonnet.

Actually, I made that up. Shakespeare really was 14 in 1578, and he did write sonnets. But no one knows when he wrote his first sonnet. Today may be the day you write your first sonnet, though.

Write a poem of at least fourteen lines. You may want to try writing a sonnet, but any fourteen line poem will do.

A sonnet is a poem written in fourteen lines with each line usually having ten syllables. There are various rhyming options for sonnets.  Shakespeare used the rhyming pattern: ABAB CDCD EDED GG. Look up Sonnet if you need help and come up with your own fourteen line poem”.

I choose to write a Sonnet, this is my first piece of poetry, there may be a few mistakes, but I’m quite happy about it, may try writing more poetry one day.

Key to My Heart

My beloved, you hold the key to my heart

The path of true love is never give up

Love is deep and simple yet complicated.

Through thick and thin you were always there for me

I never locked the door to my heart

Even on the darkest days and nights

That key you hold still unlocks my heart

Our hearts live as one locked together forever

Fifty-six years of marriage untold bliss

Never to be locked from each other ever

When that day comes when we say goodbye

We will make our way to heaven with peace

Locked in each other arms to rest in accord

With the key that lasts forever in my heart.
