Italian Sonnet

A ten syllable per line sonnet, consisting of an octave with the rhyme pattern abbaabba followed by six lines with a rhyme pattern of cdecde , cdcdcd or cdccdc

If you should notice any spelling or grammatical errors...PLEASE...point them out to me, as I am compiling these poems for my new book. Thank you, Emile.



When the last rays of sunlight start to die scarlet flames burn the sky, as clouds ignite. And while the birds roost, bats begin to fly hunting down elusive moths in mid-flight. Luna hangs high in an ebony sky spinning dreams into beams of golden light. And twinkling stars, like fireflies in the night confetti the heavens, dazzling the eye. Like gold filigree pinned to the darkness swirling galaxies adorn the skies above as shooting stars unzip the black of space. Yet, Man stands unabashed in His starkness, for cosmic beauty can't compete with love an emotion intrinsic to our race. (Italian Sonnet) Aug 7, 2018

Fantastic imagery, Emile , congratulations on an excellent win! Hugs Eve PS , my word processor states mid-flight is one word, but I see soup says it is 2.. I myself would place a hyphen.
