Seamus Heaney William Wordsworth once wrote that he liked the sonnet because he was happy with the formal limits it imposed.

Becky Whisler I love you more than anything More than a diamond ring You smell like the flowers in the spring You bring the joy of everything You're my all I love you more than anything Audra Our love, that started as a game, I never thought I'd one day be crying with the feeling of never ending pain.
Grafting is a technique used to join parts from two plants with cords so that they grow as one. The great thing about this Thomas Wyatt sonnet, on the other hand, is the way the surge of desire seems to push against the form that "bounds" it, even as it obeys the requirements — 14 lines, octave and sestet, proper Petrarchan rhyme scheme.
Make sure that you appreciate and explore the examples you choose. An idea or image which is suggested by a word, which is not its dictionary meaning, e.
Compare and contrast the use of imagery and symbolism in one poem with another poem from the same era. In this sense, the poem is emblematic.
Love dwells not in our will. And yet, through the gloom and the light, The fate of a nation was riding that night; And the spark struck out by that steed, in his flight, Kindled the land into flame with its heat.

Then there is the other audience. We wonder,—and some Hunter may express Wonder like ours, when thro' the wilderness Where London stood, holding the Wolf in chace, He meets some fragment huge, and stops to guess What powerful but unrecorded race Once dwelt in that annihilated place.
