Sonnet 1


Poem Commentary

I am writing a series of poems with someone I love very much, I wrote sonnet 1 and she wrote sonnet 2 and we will alternate back and forth and link each poem to the one that follows in the commentary, here is the link to hers, Sonnet 2 -

Sonnet 1

To compare our love to a gardens bloom
So delicate, and precious of a flower
Exudes a lovely fragrant perfume
Which glistens under moonlit rains shower
Sometimes, too wet the eyes of heaven cries
Often flooding the very soils of life
Whilst winds of change blow with intent to divide
Leaving the garden in perilous strife
But a love eternal's garden grows on
Through the winds and the rains of times trials
Deep seeded roots, gurantee the new dawn
Death beseiged by our loves stark denials
So long as the sun rises and sets yet again
So lives our love, and the memories of when

Spence, I seemly adore your use of imagery and the metaphors you have placed within this piece is charming. I just have a few things to say, or maybe I'm too much of a formalist [laugh]. The usual sonnet has its meter and syllables for effective flow [which I see you have incorporated into your piece]. There are places which the flow seems interrupted. For example: "to com PARE our LOVE to a GAR dens BLOOM" or "so DEL i cate, and PRE cious of a FLOwer". I just feel that the accents interfere with your poem's flexibility.

ok, I have been privy to Sonnet 3 first and so I am reading Sonnet 1 with a more assured understanding and expectation as Reader.... and I like, the best, "deep seated roots, guaranteeing" the dawn's morrow... which is a secure and lasting concept of love...

You have weaved together some of the most beautiful ideas, between the three sonnets... that being said I enjoyed how different each one was from the other.... You are both very talented!

I'm just gaping. Really. "Which glistens under moonlit rains shower," to me, is the most beautiful and evocative line in the poem. I could see the garden glistening under the moon. Thank you. Kelly

In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it's the exact opposite.

Franz Kafka (1883-1924) Czech writer.
