The Penguin (Qi'E) Style of Sonnet (Definition and Smaple Included)!!!



 

 A sonnet (sonetto in Italian, sonetti being the plural)
refers "little song", or "little sound",
or "to sound", "to ring", "to play",
some believes that a sonnet is a newly minted coin of a realm,
or a breakthrough from monotony of patterns,
the sonnet is a poem with 14 lines,
which builds up as a process, a moment
advancing from images to insights,
from inquiry to comprehension...

Here is a sample of a sonnet written by Mike Nelson

called

For the Lover of the Dark

I was not much more than a boy in those
days, and of all the half-witted thoughts
I had, the one that a woman could mean
everything has come back to haunt me.
.
She and I went walking and arguing
about her face. Though it was night, the dark
matched her hair, as she brushed her hair
aside, and I clearly saw it. It was
.
What happened in a planetarium
when the lights faded out and the stars came on,
and were set turning. Way back, way back, fooled
by the illusion so the mystery
.
could take place, squinting to make the ceiling
vault again. Just try and forget.
