Forbearance Rusted doors open slow, For water to form ice, Sunset to again rise, To revive the lost glow, Clear the restricted flow, To strengthen the weak ties, Need patience and courage, For broken hearts to mend happy they might pretend, To speak mind; encourage, and hamper the scourage, Pain we must comprehend, As thunders turn us wise, aghast leaves in surprise ! Hexsonnetta in Iambic trimeter Written August 28th, 2015 For contest by Andrea Awarded HM Entered for "Contest 216- any form any topic" poetry contest by Brian Strand

Congrats for the HM, Dr. Sharma. You needed to put HexSonnetta in the top part where the title was. other than that, you did great with your effort to follow the rules of the form.
