Enamored, the orthodox heart did dare, negating the ornery ways that glared, as sparkles snared in a love impasse. Memories quaint, these moments that’ve passed… …of you and I, perfect Sol hierophants Rays of hot gold, palpable in nimble hands as our limbs dazzle-danced with youth’s prowess, denying our eyes of the immanent duress… Amidst the music and raucous laughter, evermore imbibed and tasted hereafter… New Zealand waved its summer days southward ~ Dolphins winked thru the surf’s cresting reward ~~ So long to those sun-filled, warm Christmas days… So long to those love-filled, carefree plays… (5/11/2021: For Summer Love Sonnet contest)

Susan, when I was first learning to write sonnets in meter, at the top of my page, I put the na Na na Na na Na na Na na Na then every time I came up with a thought I made it fit the pattern. After a while I quit putting it at the top of the page because it started to come naturally, even in my rhymes. I hope this helps:)
