Sonnet Bake-off deadline SUnday, April 3 NOON EST

Posted 04-02-2011 at 03:29 PM by Catherine Chandler
I've received more entries than I did back in 2009 and am having a difficult time winnowing it down to 12 (or 13 for a baker's dozen!) to send to Sam Gwynn.

It's funny how "themes" appear from year to year, in sonnets quite different from one another in other aspects.

This year the theme that seems to be popping up is that of jewels.

Blood, bones and feathers

I thought I'd write here about my long flirtation with poetry.

My parents, who both worked in London when I was a toddler, would leave me in the care of my grandfather, who would attempt to teach me reams of Scott to pass the time. Meet nurse for a poetic child.

When I grew a little older, perhaps five or so, I found a red school exercise book and entitled it "POEMS BY T. T." It contains entries such as:
