The English Sonnet
The English sonnet has been around for longer then


Thank you for listening to our presentation! We hope you learned about the English sonnet!
The English sonnet was first written in Italy.

The word sonnet is from the Italian word sonetto, meaning "little song".
The Grief-Stricken India
By: Dr.Ram Meht

The rain-god bursts in Himalaya regions
With snow-covered mountains and deep forests
There’s Kedar temple for Hindu pilgrims
Coming to worship the god in thousands
Sanctum Sanctorum inside the temple
Of Kedar revered by millions of Hindus
A bleak picture of purses, bags and shoes
All personal things lay strewn in ample.
Outside the temple vandals had free hand
Houses, cars and what not flooding in
Thousands of people dead or stranded
Millions waiting to hear about their end
There’s no right or wrong way to cope with pain
Time, can renew and permit you to mend.

Sonnet Number 18
By: Shakespeare

Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer's lease hath all too short a date:
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimmed,
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance, or nature's changing course untrimmed:
But thy eternal summer shall not fade,
Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow'st,
Nor shall death brag thou wander'st in his shade,
When in enternal lines to time thou grow'st,
So long as men can breathe, or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee
The answer is.....

Do You Know Your Sonnets?
Sing With Chimes
By:Cecil Hickman

Semovedly thine voice shall have no echo to hear.
Inly there be only hollowness to see no distant.
Natheless hardy wind, thou shall be inconsistent.
Gradual flow upon thee, wilts bring many a tear.
Wellaway can be withered upwards into cheer.
Iwis my heart and thou will bloom constant.
Thole stint without thee voice, time is non-existent.
Hark thy sweet melody showers over my fear.
Courage of mine shall champion forthcoming tune.
Heavenly fairies shall dance for both our souls.
I shall cherish and marry in month of June.
My love will grant me all musical controls.
Erelong our passion will bloom as we swoon.
Singing with chimes enriches our passionate goals

To Fanny
By: John Keats

I cry your mercy–pity–love!–aye, love!
Merciful love that tantalizes not,
One-thoughted, never-wandering, guileless love,
Unmasked, and being seen–without a blot!
O! let me have thee whole,–all–all–be mine!
That shape, that fairness, that sweet minor zest
Of love, your kiss,–those hands, those eyes divine,
That warm, white, lucent, million-pleasured breast,–
Yourself–your soul–in pity give me all.
Withhold no atom’s atom or I die,
Or living on perhaps, your wretched thrall,
Forget, in the mist of idle misery,
Life’s purposes,–the palate of my mind
Losing its gist, and my ambition blind!

The answer is.....
To Fanny By John Keats !
Remember the pattern !

Sonnet 18
By; Shakespeare
The soote season, that bud and bloom forth brings,
With green hath clad the hill, and eke the vale.
The nightingale with feathers new she sings;
The turtle to her make hath told her tale.
Summer is come, for every spray now springs,
The hart hath hung his old head on the pale;
The buck in brake his winter coat he slings;
The fishes flete with new repaired scale;
The adder all her slough away she slings;
The swift swallow pursueth the flies smale;
The busy bee her honey now she mings;
Winter is worn that was the flowers' bale.
And thus I see among these pleasent things
Each care decays, and yet my sorrow springs!
Description of Spring,
Wherein Every Thing Renews, Save Only The Lover
By; Henry Howard, Earl of Surrey
Shakespeare wrote 154 sonnets!
When I Have Fears That I May Cease to Be
When I have fears that I may cease to
Before my pen has gleaned my teeming
Before high-piled books, in
Hold like rich garners the full-ripened
When I behold upon the night's starred
Huge cloudy symbols of a high
And think that I may never live to
Their shadows, with the magic hand of
And when I feel, fair creature of an
That I shall never look upon thee
Never have relish in the faery
Of unreflecting love! -then on the
Of the wide world I stand alone, and
Till Love and Fame to nothingness do
