Iambic pentameter’s hard to follow
so I think, I won’t try to attempt it
I think it makes such poems sound hollow
and who wants to be told their poetry’s sick?
The Rhyme. Another problem: to be sure,
it makes such poems rather good to hear,
but what’s the use if one fails rhyme’s allure?
I quake and shiver down my spine in fear:
While also considering patterned-lines
or is it line patterns, four four four two
but Petrarch says four four three three, and mines
of Metaphor to draw from, different schools
of thought, and remember: sonnets have fourteen lines.
