Enjoy a sonnet duo to bring pleasure to your day!

Bright Star
--Description: 20th C, Keats J., Nature, Night, Sonnet--

Sonnet 44: Beloved Thou Hast Brought Me Many Flowers
--Description: 19th C, Barrett Browning E., Love, Nature, Sonnet--

--Poetry Terminology: Elision-
The suppression of a vowel or syllable for metrical purposes. E.g. 'The sedge has wither'd from the lake' from La Belle Dame Sans Merci by Keats. The elision, in this case, ensures that the line remains octosyllabic. Modern poets no longer use elision. See also synalepha.

--Word of the Day: gastronome \GAS-truh-nohm\, noun:
A connoisseur of good food and drink.
If "poultry is for the cook what canvas is for a painter," to quote the 19th-century French gastronome Brillat-Savarin, why paint the same painting over and over again?
-John Willoughby and Chris Schlesinger, "From Poussin to Capon a Chicken in Every Size", New York Times, September 22, 1999

--Quote of the Day: Sonnets are guys writing in English, imitating an Italian song form. It was a form definitely sung as often as it was recited.
>-Steve Earle
