The Poet's Forum

umm... hi!

Well, being the amateur poet that I am and on assignment to find out about Keats' "When I have fears", I found this site.  It is very nice.  And I will share a somewhat goofy sonnet I wrote for my english class about my english teacher and she seemed to get a kick out of it.



“Sonnet to the Great One”



Oh ye who rule my life with grace and love!

The book of all; great Norton!  Make it mine:

Great pieces like the novels best, above

My small amount of thought compared to thine,

Which dwarfs all that I will aspire to do.

Miss Ivey, you do only things of good;

Your language always sparkles as you

Do; I adore with great respect.  One should

Admire as few can, the beauty hidden

Behind your mask of knowledge that obscures

The latent shining star!  Essays written

Yes, weekly for thee!  Topic I procure!

Benevolent Miss Ivey!  Thou art great!

Oh good Miss Ivey:  holder of my fate!
