Lost Rendezvous

Lost Rendezvous – My Valiant Knight

My valiant knight I had to see. I ran into the woods for one last rendezvous. November, unpredictable though, can wreak melancholy, for a strong wind blew! All sunlight vanished; it grew deathly cold. And in the gloaming, crystal sky became as ash! To think this day that promised gold brought only misery, yet still the flame of passion for the man I loved still burned as limbs of frosted trees like hoary men lashed out at me. The knight for whom I yearned I could not find. I’d not see him again. Great pathos floods my soul forevermore. My valiant knight was later killed in war.

    Yikes!!! and eight word challenge done in the ever challenging sonnet form....a double steal....(every time I read or hear the word "gloaming" I hear bag pipes and see burly men dancing in kilts)

    Nice mournful resonance. And most impressively you rhymed rendezvous with blew. Best of luck in the contest.

    This is a special Sonnet Andrea! But are you missing a line? Aren't there supposed to be 14 lines in a Sonnet? Just checking for ya my friend! But I do love what you have come up with right here, It is such a wondrous poem, So grandiose! I really enjoyed reading it this morning, as you posted this late last night! Great Work!!

    Yesterday I decided to read Cinder Girl just to see how this is always first in the list. I was not disappointed. Neither is this sonnet today disappointing. Well written and sure to finish up high. Hugs//Victor
