Finally weekend is here and somehow I could creep back into this world of mine. Back here with the day 14 post!
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.
Well, just what I wanted to do!!
Standing before you. . . .
A guilty sinner before you stands,
Prostrating humbly, eyes red with tears,
Many wrongs done by these stained hands,
Which have brought Your wrath, I fear.
How hard I tried to live as commanded,
Lured by the devil, pulled into the abyss of fire,
Now I am afraid of where I’ve landed,
I fell deep down from Your eyes, instead of rising higher.
Yet I have faith and belief, in You, the Creator of all,
My sins are too small, before Your forgiving heart,
Your promises show me a light of hope, a voice to my soul that calls,
That You’ll forgive this sinner, even if his sins were the size of oceans vast.
I will strive to do good, kill the impure desires within me,
To appease, and seek the blessings and mercy of Thee!
A little effort of what was going on in my heart and mind. Hope you like it!
Thanks for reading. Stay happy and blessed.
