For fun, click onto: Billy Collins, former United States Poet Laureate, to read his satirical view of sonnets, cleverly entitled, "Sonnet."
Four Soles, Soulful Foursome
Idyllically, they travel with an aim
and quickly learn that truth rests in a friend,
for surely, they’ll discover life’s no game.
A splendid road will definitely bend.
These traveling souls of four know not of end,
for they rely on trusting gifts of love:
one pulls with strength, one’s job is to attend
two brothers with one mind, blessed from above
with dreams conjoined like wings that lift the dove.
Four souls of spirit and vitality
advance with might and shared awareness of
their vision for determined liberty.
A humble vessel pulled by four strong soles,
transporting dreams, fulfilling simple goals.
