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.
