Since I've dedicated the past two years to learning the "sonnet" form, I thought I'd write this little tribute to one who mastered it.

Mr. Shakespeare, I strive to reach your heights.
My soul so burns to bring such brilliant verse
to those spending their future days and nights
pursuing the spiritís intírests so diverse.

If only I could find the words so sweet
to then describe a love or flowerís scent
as you could make the perfect rhymes complete
would pay my true love such a compliment.

Alas, my words fall short of yours, great Bard
although my feelings lacerate as deep.
I shall fight on and struggle just as hard
To create art that makes them smile or weep.

Iíve dreamed your dreams and felt your agony.
Now only must I tear such words from me.

Good to see Traditional Verse Forms are still alive and kicking in this age of Free Verse!

Well done. Only lately have I discovered some who believe the Bard to be highly overrated. And just the other day two little old British ladies on the bus saw me reading Shakespeare; one said, and the other nodded her affirmation, "What an awful play. I feel sorry for you."

Surely Shakespeare appreciates this tribute, Chuck. Thank you for sharing it. Love and peace to you,

We could all chew our tongues out contemplating old Will's unmatched mastery...Good tribute.

Blessed are those that follow the ones that honored the langauge and accomplished the artistic goal.

Much gratitude to the author of "Ode To William Shakespeare" for sharing this great tribute to the poetic art and to a model artist of the VERB.

In admiration,

Shakespeare would be delighted that you chose to imitate his sonnets and did them so well.
