The third element in Othello-N

The element of handkerchief in the plot Becomes its important pivot symbol A heritage he got from his mother first The Desdemona’s virtue sexual. Losing or giving away meant her fall Was laced with strawberries’s image design On a wedding sheet bloodstains recall. More interpretations one can define. Iago used it on Desdemona divine With the help of his wife stealing it And placing it in Cassio’s confine Enough proof for Othello to excite He kissed her, killed her by smothering her Then killed himself too lying near his dear. ========================================= A Spenserian Sonnet:Rhyme scheme : ababbcbc cdcdee, with Iambic five feet

I'm a huge fan of Shakespeare, Dr. Ram. This is an outstanding Spenserian sonnet. I have come to love all the sonnet forms and thank you for introducing me to this one. Love, Carolyn
