Happy Birthday Jenny (Kyrielle Sonnet)

Happy birthday to you Jenny
Hope your big day brings you plenty
Keep a bright smile all the way
Your mom sings your praises today

Soon you will be driving to school
Don’t forget to follow the rules
Enjoy your day with a buffet
Your mom sings your praises today

Happy birthday to you Jenny
Don’t forget to save your pennies
Wish on a star on your great day
Your mom sings your praises today

Happy birthday to you Jenny
Your mom sings your praises today

This is for the the daughter of our own poetess, Kathy.

The Kyrielle Sonnet is a French form from the Middle Ages. It has 14 lines (three 
rhyming quatrains and a non-rhyming couplet). It has a repeating line or phrase 
as a refrain in the last line of each stanza.  Each line within the Kyrielle Sonnet 
has eight syllables.  There are times when a French poem links back to the 
poem’s beginning; therefore, a common practice is to combine the first line of 
the first quatrain and the refrain in each quatrain as the ending couplet for the

Sunday Sonnet

Yes, to have a month of Sundays, I think
that would be the solution to Monday.
To skip the rest of the week with a wink
and eliminate all problems today.
Yes, I think that would be the solution.
No more stress or strain or auto commute.
Just a day of total absolution.
A month like this we could all salute!
A month of Sundays, the prospect boggles!
Home and family and visiting friends,
no more news related ugly hassles,
and no more errands to the earth's ends.
Yes, to daydream of a month of Sundays
and avoid the issues of the real days

A Sonnet On a Tough Girl

I never will forget in junior high this girl who was a two-faced friend of mine. I can’t remember now the reason why, but she got mad for something asinine. She said, “I’m gonna beat you up! Be at the park, beside the water tower.” She then told me, “Bet you won’t show up.” That brat was MEAN! All day I fretted needlessly of what could be a real bad episode! So after school with my best friend, I went And waited for that witch; she never showed! With great relief, I then began to vent to my best friend of things that we could do to that “tough girl” - a chicken through and through! *True story & dedicated to my junior high school foe, who later went on to marry (and then divorce) the brother of my BEST friend! To read more about what happened later on with me and her, please view "ABOUT THIS POEM" which can be seen by clicking in the left hand corner above the title of a poem.

Dream Sonnet

Aye t’was a beautiful breeze come a wafting through the trees,
The bonnie belles carpeted under the green ivy all a climb,
When along came me lassie, me favourite squeeze,
And to be sure now I’ll have a time of it makin’ this rhyme.

But I’ll not let that stop me, I’ll jest have me a nip,
As I describe me fair dream and the swing of her hip, 
the coarse hair fairly bristling o’er her upper lip,
And her dirty knickers hangin’ below her slip.

Ah such a fair one me heart did skip; to her me mug I’ll tip!
Couldn’t keep me hands off her as her nose begun to drip,
She had dried dinner on her cheek; oh how she did sneeze!
Whilst in girly fashion wiped her nose on her sleeve.

Kin ya blame me barkeep? Can ya try an perceive?
Why I woke in the night and started to heave?

The Sonnet Man really needs a side kick,
But not a side kick that wants to fight crime.
I need one to come in at the right time,
And shatter things like a very wide brick.
Just like a witch, who knows how to ride sticks,
I need a chick who knows how to write slime,
Not expecting to get paid a bright dime,
Like someone who wants to be my pride pick.
I need a side kick who can kick some butt,
Or at least can kick up a little ink.
One who is not afraid, no matter what,
Of what anyone could possibly think.
One with words that will hit you in the gut,
Before you are even able to blink.

                             I just love a game of life with good rules

Friday Sonnet

It's the end of the week
Almost time to go home
Today ends the streak
Of 'productivity syndrome'.

I worked hard all day
Trying to get some things done
And I'm happy to say
That I'm still number one

At stalling and waiting
And doing it later
I simply am stating
I'm a shirker of labor

To all the work I have left...
I say, "T-G-I-F!"

Thursday Sonnet

We should eat turkey once a week
And not just once a year.
I'd eat ev'ry part (but not the beak)
And wash it down with beer.

Thursday's the day that I propose
We eat this weekly feast.
Because as far as events go,
Poor Thursday has the least.

Lethargic Fridays would be implied,
(You'd need a day to recover.)
Thanksgiving would fall right in stride
So whaddaya say, turkey lover?

How do we make it official? I don't know what the laws be.
Thursday needed a lift ever since the last episode of Cosby.

Monday Sonnet

If your headache is bad,
It's about to get worser.
The fun that you had
Is just a precursor...

To the fun you won't have
Once it's time to clock in.
There's no balm and no salve
That can quiet the din...

That clangs in your head
Once the work week's begun.
But at least you ain't dead,
And the man hasn't won.

So shake your fist and stick it to 'em.
Mondays, we all have to go through 'em.

Rise of The Sonnet Man

I was created to be creative,
Being blessed with a literary tongue
Meant to be foreign or to be native,
And the source upon which your ears are hung.
I spend days, in both present and past tense,
Finding a different way to use words,
Making them appeal to a certain sense,
Because they were created to be heard.
Whether I make you laugh or make you think,
The common goal is to make you react,
And possessing "the most powerful ink"
Is a statement that was meant to be fact.
       The Sonnet Man was created to thrill,
       By using his pen to showcase his skill.

Happy Birthday Dear Carol Brown (Kyrielle Sonnet)

It’s a great day to shake and bake
Dance, sing, and eat all of your cake
It’s time to wear your dinner gown
Happy Birthday Dear Carol Brown

Upon reaching the Big Six O
Spread and stretch on your patio
Wear your fancy dress into town
Happy Birthday Dear Carol Brown

As you puff out the nice candles
Hold tight onto your chair handles
Smile today and let your hair down
Happy Birthday Dear Carol Brown

It’s a great day to shake and bake
Happy Birthday Dear Carol Brown

Comments:  Dedicated to my poet laureate friend Carol Brown.  The Kyrielle 
Sonnet has 14 lines (three rhyming quatrain stanzas and a non-rhyming 
couplet). It has a repeating line or phrase as a refrain in the last line of each 
stanza.  Each line within the sonnet has eight syllables. The French use the first 
and last line of the first quatrain as the ending couplet. This reinforces the refrain 
within the poem. The rhyming scheme for a Kyrielle Sonnet normally is: AabB, 
ccbB, ddbB, AB -or- AbaB, cbcB, dbdB, AB.

Sonnet 18 reversed

Shall I compare thee to my Adelaide?
Thou art less lovely and less temperate.
Rough winds shake you, my bony lady May,
Adelaide’s lease hath all a better date. 

Sometimes too hot your eye of hell shines,
And often your ugly complexion dimmed;
And every fair from fair always declines,
By chance, or nature's changing course untrimmed. 

But her eternal summer shall not fade
Nor lose possession of that fair her ow'st;
Nor shall death brag her wand'rest in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time her grow'st,

So long as you can breathe or you can see, 
So long lives thou, and I will not love thee.

Aging (SONNET)

Of youth, I dare not say ado, yet wait
upon the willing heart that I be spared
that visit standing at the Pearly Gates,
I bide my time, not hurried to go there.

For on this Earth I tarry not to die,
believing soul and body to unite,
hence, the tongue in silence gives no cry,
with my Lord I stand in glorious light.

Grim Reaper, oh dreaded one, be not proud
for many, not I alone, must now fight
to keep our youth in the maddening crowd,
and know that never we should fear the night.

Alas, 'tis not from aging I dispair
but from telling mirror I must beware.

love sonnet

Love Sonnet 
This afternoon at the local grocer I had bought a bottle of beer
 and a tin of tuna fish and I meet the daughter of the woman
I had been in love with, I had never seen her before and said 
halloo like she knew me and she was as lovely as her mother
was. Her mother came and I said something flattering, they both
smiled knowingly, you can`t fool a woman about love. I`m sure 
her mother had told her daughter of my trips to the post office
where she worked t the time. And they have been laughing, not of
derision, but by my inability to express my love openly. 

I`m telling this because when I came from hospital in December
after collapsing and had been given a pacemaker and the onset of 
the shingles I was in despair both physically and mentally and 
I said if I had died I would have no knowledge about this tristesse
My wife cried and I promised not to speak thus again and I would 
not met the daughter of the woman I loved

A Sonnet on a Discord

The ringing was so piercing and incessant
from way outside the house I heard its blare.
I ran into my room; my clock flourescent,
that object of offense, sat clanging there.

But when its button “off” I firmly pressed,
I hadn’t done a thing to stop the sound.
I then perceived there must have been some jest.
Oh, where could all the clamor’s source be found?

I sought my plague with mounting discontent,
and every room I managed soon to rake.
It taunted me; such shrillness was a torment.
And suddenly, I found myself awake!

Subconsciously my rising I had fought
and put the ringing in my own dream’s plot.

(This is a true story of how I kept myself from waking to my
dang ding-a-ling alarm clock)

The Sonnet Man's Sidekick

If I had to choose a partner in crime,
Why on earth would I choose another guy?
I would rather have a girl any time,
And you really do not have to ask why.
Which friend with benefits would I employ?
Wonder Woman can fly across the world,
But a Superwoman I could enjoy,
Or someone like Catwoman or Batgirl.
I need someone who proves their relevance,
Displaying powers I have not seen yet,
Or someone who controls the elements,
So I can see how wet a Storm can get.
       With so many ways down time could be spent,
       These crime fighting friends would be heaven sent.

The Code of The Sonnet Man

Now my moral code might be confusing
To those who think in terms of good and bad,
But I am compelled to go on using
My moral code, though it makes others mad.
What is right is right, What is wrong is wrong,
And everything in between makes sense
To the one who composes his own song,
So do not bother making yourself tense.
I took an oath with my right hand in air,
While firmly over my heart was my left,
To seal the deal as I boldly declare,
"Steal from the rich and keep it for myself."
        This is just a part of the master plan
        Of the hero known as The Sonnet Man.

The Sonnet Man strikes

I do not fight crime, so please lock your doors,
Since I am unable to protect you
From those who steal from the rich and the poor,
And are extremely good at what they do.
Most criminals are not employed,
So this means that we all can sleep in late,
Since sleeping is something to be enjoyed,
And waking up early is what we hate.
I know my disguise is quite "hood" looking,
So please do not even bother to ask.
But, if I happened to be good looking,
Then, I would not bother to wear a mask.
       Expect me to wear a tee-shirt and jeans,
       Because costumes cost too much to dry clean.

I dance Silly Sonnet

I dance and dance and dance some more
I dance to that funky beat
I tap my feet I move my feet upon the floor
As they turn up the heat
I rock it out and rock around the place
I twist and turn and lift my hands
Sweat drips down and off my face
As I break the binding bands
My body moves left and right
My mind is not in command
My moves are hot and out of sight
It grooves to the music's demand
Finally I fall down to the ground
Like old broken hound

Rhoda's Twin Moons Birthday (Kyrielle Sonnet)

Two moons shine in the morning sky
Join each other as time goes by
Providing light to guide the night
Like Rhoda’s birthday shining bright

From a place so nice it’s named twice
Like birthday cake with blending spice   
The Big Apple has sparkling lights
Like Rhoda’s birthday shining bright

Happy birthday to you Rhoda
Drink lemonade and not soda
Celebrate your day as you write

A Funny Sonnet for Kids

Fenmore the frog with the lopsided hop
would travel in circles till he tired and stopped,
then jumped into the pond with a giant kerplop
as the bullfrogs laughed and croaked till dropped.

It mattered not where Fenmore was bound,
even when swimming he went round and round.
Amongst all the pollywogs he was renowned
for going and going and not gaining ground.

Poor Fenmore had no trouble just staying bust
but circling and circling made him so dizzy.
He lived in a pond he never could cross,
but one thing's for sure, he never got lost.

So no matter your problems, or where you start,
you'll always get home, if you just trust your heart!

Sonnet for the Noughties!

Come live with me, and be my mistress!
No old-fashioned “man and wife”!
We’ll share the things you have in common …
Who wants to live the single life?

Come live with me, and do my washing.
Cook my dinner, iron my shirts:
And when I’ve squandered all your money,
I’ll show you how love really hurts …

Come live with me, and have my children.
Change their diapers, clean the loo:
And when you fall in bed, exhausted,
I’ll find you something else to do …

Come live with me, and pay the mortgage.
Work your fingers to the bone.
I’ll splash out on a brand new motor!
Ten to one, we’ll lose our home …

Come live with me, and dwell in Limbo.
Lose your looks, and break your health:
And when you’ve lost your youth and beauty,
I’ll go shack up with someone else!

With apologies to W. Shakespeare

New Year Tag - Spenserian Sonnet

T’is the season of jolly and such fun
Ending a year and starting out brand new
Others will be looking to the long run
Uplifting many with words from a few
Celebrating the new binding like glue
Moving together with tag poetry
Pot on the stove with Epulaeryu brew
This stew is filled with great artistry
T’is is just like cosmetic dentistry
Brings a smile to celebrating faces
The time is now for a royal entry
Like playing cards with faces of aces
Hello Lynn Marie go put on your clogs
Look out the window you have just been tagged!

Comment:  I was tagged by Katherine Stella.  Hello Lynn, this is especially for 
you.  Happy New Year!  Now you will have to find someone whose poetry you 
enjoy to tag.  NOTE: The Spenserian sonnet rhymes as follows: 
ABABBCBCCDCDEE.  The second four lines are linked by rhymes to the first four 
and the follow four, and a couplet concludes the poem by reemphasizing the 
main idea or proposing an alternative view.  Isn’t this fun!!!

Shall I compare a tragedy to a  comedy?
Tragic  art’s   more lovely and more temperate:
Rough minds do shake with laughing at   Nuts in May,
And  some   comedies   have all too short a sell-by  date:

Sometime   the plot is shy of  meaning  lines,
And oft   is the old   rich-haircut-joke   dimm'd;
And every heir with hair  sometime declines,
A fresh cut, keeping nature's changing hair untrimm'd:

But tragedy’s  eternal superiority shall not fade
Nor lose possession of its humour  edge, the  lowest;
Nor shall failure brag thou wast by comedy in the shade,
When  with eternal lines  of fans,   thou growest:

Whenever   men can’t breathe, and eyes can’t see,
Then long lives this, and this gives life to tragedy.

Sicilian Sonnet On Reinforced Concrete

I am a piece of reinforced concrete,
I can withstand a lot of punishment.
I am frequently used to make pavement,
Since I can absorb the impact of feet.

My bones are parallel prestrained steel rods,
Placed along my body to add more strength.
Steel becomes stiffer when you stretch its length,
And my flesh mixed of ground rock and dirt clods.

In modern times I have many a niche,
Into any shape I am pourable.
I serve the needs of the poor and the rich,
Being strong, versatile, and durable.
Bridge, foundation, and irrigation ditch;
For any project I am feasible.

Literally A Sonnet About A Hornet

Oh buzz off you crazy crazy hornet
Trying to land here upon my buttock,
Here I am eating my crispy cornet
Lazing naked in my garden hammock.

Tried to coax it with my berry ice cream
But alas it seems unprepared or blind,
Dancing upon an invisible beam
Homing in on me with a one track mind.

Could it be I’ve enhanced the essence air
With a gross wind to further relieve me,
Or is this a mock symphony of flair
Of a Britain’s got talent “Bumble Bee?”

His “The classical flight” winning first prize
In pain my swelling one hell of a size!

All Fool's Day Sonnet

The wolves are out howling at the full moon
Jokesters are next and will be here real soon
I am holding tight to my silver spoon
See you in Dodge City when it’s high noon

My heart skipping and jumping as it beats
Knowing this day will be a fancy treat
Some folks are waiting to turn up the heat
I like this day because it is so neat

All Fool’s Day is remembered far and wide
With a smile I think I will stay inside
My heart will sing and also try to hide
Whisper All Fool’s Day and stand by my side

The wolves are out howling at the moon
Jokesters are next and will be coming soon!
