THE SIXTH WEBSITE OF
THE SONNET MAN
Here is The Sonnet Man’s sixth internet collection of his sonnets.
100 Sonnets are on this website plus the three introductory ones. I hope some here give you pleasure or ‘stimulation’ somehow.
Several are likely to be controversial. I apologise if they, anyone, upsets,
but I have meant them as an honest expression of my feelings, views and creativity.
Louis Untermeyer, American poet laureate, wrote, of the sonnet –
“In spite of its severe limitation, it is capable of the widest possible range of emotions: the beauty of life and the terror of death; elegiac sorrow and leaping joy; meditative questioning and the rapt acceptance of love. It is to the varied manifestations of love – delightful and desperate, filial and paternal, restrained and ecstatic ….” I add, and more, and yet still more, I hope my sonnets get somewhere near.
If you like any one, or indeed several, or the website, please communicate this to someone you know who may appreciate these poems.
I hope you enjoy Sonnets Six.
