Courtesy of Tweetspeak, we continue our celebration of Shakespeare's birthday. How we wish we'd had these guidelines in prior years! How much hair-pulling may have been avoided? Of course one doesn't end a line with a word like 'sonnet' ... unless you've got a really, really creative line ending in 'bonnet' coming up.
Notice the list at the bottom of popular GOOD sonnets. 'Ozymandias' is one of my favs. If there was a list of popular BAD sonnets, we might be on it!
Also, this is the kind of thing poets think is hilarious.
