Hello again friends.
Welcome to my Day 27 entry for National Poetry Writing Month.
The prompt over at NaPoWriMo HQ was to remix and fiddle around with some of William Shakespeare’s Sonnets.
I’m actually rather partial to the language of the bard himself, having come to appreciate it so much more later in life, the wit and playfulness of his words never fail to bring nuggets of joy and inspiration to my own writing.
I’ve used Sonnet 18 (Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?) as the focus of my found poem today. You can find the lyrics to it here:-
And now here is my found poem, thank you for reading and hope you enjoy it.
“Summer Shall Not Fade In Shade” by David Ellis
Shall art more lovely
Shake all too short
The eye of heaven, often
Every chance changing course
But summer shall not fade in shade
When time can breathe
Eyes can see
And this gives life
