Sonnet By: Dilpreet
Transcript of Sonnet By: Dilpreet
But as for me, hélas, I may no more.
The vain travail hath wearied me so sore,
I am of them that farthest cometh behind.
Yet may I by no means my wearied mind
Draw from the deer, but as she fleeth afore
Fainting I follow. I leave off therefore,
Since in a net I seek to hold the wind.
Who list her hunt, I put him out of doubt,
As well as I may spend his time in vain.
And graven with diamonds in letters plain
There is written, her fair neck round about:
Noli me tangere, for Caesar’s I am,
And wild for to hold, though I seem tame.
By: Thomas Wyatt
Whoso List To Hunt
What Is A Sonnet?
A Sonnet is a singular stanza 14 line poem. The theme of a Sonnet was originally Love but over time people have used other themes. It uses any formal rhyme scheme and generally has 10 syllables per line. There are three types of Sonnets they all have differences, but there are also very similar the three are Shakespearean, Spenserian, and finally Petrarchan. The Shakespearean Sonnets uses the rhyme scheme AABB CCDD EEFF GG.
Why did I choose this poem
I chose this poem because it interested me since it talks about hunting and how he can not do it anymore but he still keeps trying to get the "Hind". But this poem has a deeper meaning since Sonnets are usually about love I was wondering why this one was not. Then I found out this song is not about hunting in the wild the song is just a metaphor about chasing after a woman. That just made it more interesting because it has multiple layers and can be interpreted multiple ways.
There is a lot of figurative language in this poem mostly just metaphors but there are other too.
- Line 1 and 2 are examples of a metaphor they talk about a hind (female deer) and if someone wants to "hunt" he knows where a hind is but he means if someone is looking for a women he knows where on is.
- 5 to 7 talk about he can not take his eyes off of the girl and stop following her. There is also some alliteration in these lines ( Farthest, fleeth, and fainting.)
- 13 and 14 talk about how the Hind (woman) says that she belongs to Caesar (Noli me tangere means do not touch me) and she also says that she may seen tame but she is definitely wild.
What Would I Ask The Author
- Did you make this poem because of an event that occurred to you and you wrote about it to express your feelings?
- Do you think that relationships from when you were alive are different know and if they are how so?
- How long did it take you to write this poem and how old were you when you wrote it?
Where did this Poem take place
I think this poem could take place anywhere and anytime just in a public place. But if you interpret the poem in a different such as hunting this poem would take place in a forest and a man hunting for deer and he can't seem to hit his mark. It is just how you interpret the song.
The Lonely Leaf
Floating down with grace and ease
Carried off by the Autumn breeze
Rich in hues of orange and red
Landing in the flower bed
What once was buzzing full of life
Now succumbs to the knife
Staring up at the rotting rose
Another season comes to close
Looking for memories of this day
Not forgetting her fun filled stay
Lying amongst the rocks and sticks
I'm the one the little girl picks
Hurries home with the one she took
Placing it in her poetry book
