Imagination (English Sonnet)

Fanciful delight filled the young girl eyes
In her child's world of color and wonder.
Her quaint dragon friend had a big surprise,
They were having a bunny party there!

Bright yellow bell cups held the morning's dew
As the tree nymph sang, music filled the air.
She whispered secrets (just like children do)
Of her glee and excitement for the affair.

Such was the felicity in her heart!
Such was the hidden joy, the innocence!
What happens to these when growing years start?
Does it all fade away into absence?

That child is still in us and she slumbers,
But Imagination.... awakens her.

Cynthia Buhain-Baello~~~01.13.15

In a common English form, the sonnet is divided into 3 quatrains followed by a couplet. In English, sonnets are traditionally written in iambic pentameter (10 syllables per line) . The usual rhyme scheme is end-rhymed a-b-a-b, c-d-c-d, e-f-e-f, g-g.

Summer Solstice

Summer solstice again, sun at its bright,
At summit making longest day of light,
A lover’s date lingering till late night,
Leaving far behind looming wintry plight.

To us Indians blest with abundant sun,
Where summer’s a lasting boon from heaven,
Solstice of either kind is passing fun,
Nor longest day means a rare fortune won.

Nor is mild winter a melancholy
Of Polar lands that ever pallid be,
In summer do we head to climes hilly.
And seek cool lagoons, a lily at sea.

Nature would want men from plenitude draw the least,
And from less and less to look for a sumptuous feast!
___________________________________________________________
Written on 22nd June, Summer Solstice Day. This is a peculiar
piece that uses a sonnet format with four rhymes in all.
All the four lines of each quatrain take the same rhyme.

Angry woman furious furious
Yelling yelling thunderous thunderous
Hitting her head vigorous vigorous
Slapping her face serious serious

Serious furious is angry man
Thunderous vigorous booing boos span
Serious vigorous his goblets plan
Thunderous serious late night elan

Angry woman furious furious
Yelling yelling thunderous thunderous
Hitting her head vigorous vigorous
Slapping her face serious serious

Hassling children dangerous hazardous
Battling home scene hazardous perilous

To Charles Baudelaire: Translation Of Paul Verlaine's A Charles Baudelaire

(Paul Verlaine’s sonnet: « A Charles Baudelaire », translated by T. Wignesan.
I thought I’ll first present to readers – they should see why - an unrimed version, and maybe later the strict sonnet form.)

I didn’t know you, I didn’t love you,
I know you not: period, and I love you even less:
I can hardly defend your diffamed name,
And if I have some right to count myself among your witnesses,

Then it’s, first of all, and besides all, towards the Feet tied.
Initially by the cold nails, then the surges of feeling
The women of sin – whose Oh! how anointed,
So many kisses, intoxicating chrism and kisses full of hunger! -

You fell, you prayed, like me, like all the rest
The souls that hunger and thirst during the passage
Pushed so many well-wishing hopes to reach Calvary!

Calvary rightful and true, Calvary where, then, these doubts
This, that, grimaces, art, tearful at their rout.
What? To die unprotesting, we, men of sin.
