BATTLING THE SEA
The vicious storm approached the ship,
Heavy rain and strong wind shattered the deck;
The battered sails swayed to and fro,
Captain and crew fighting to avoid wreck;
No smiles but yells until trouble gone
Nothing is safe nothing is secured;
The courageous captain stubborn as a mule,
Sailors combating the seas as pains endured.
The crew’s enemy battered their ship hard,
Nothing left unturned as they searched for camp;
The captain searching for rocks to avoid,
Until finally he noticed the lighthouse lamp.
Over was that night of turmoil and fears,
Sailors elated, eyes filled with joyful tears.
A CONTEMPORARY SONNET
The word sonnet is derived from the Italian word “sonetto,” which means a “little song” or small lyric. In poetry, a sonnet has 14 lines and is written in iambic pentameter. Each line has 10 syllables. It has a specific rhyme scheme, and a volta, or a specific turn.
My contemporary sonnet it is the same accept with specific meters
