Sonnet Form

IN SONNET FORM

to reach that bright iambic shore
pentameter lovers like to claim
for their rows of b's and a's,
for their lines of 3's and 4's;


but doggerel in truth to me
seems a tastier lay of land,
seems a…

Animal Train (kid's poem) / looking for illustrator

the monster machine snaking past.
Their eyes would first spot the cloud of smoke.
Then turn to watch each car go.
Then turn to catch the trailing caboose
bounce about till it was lost.
Nothing left but the catching up sound
that would…
