This is my blog (now there is a surprise!). I will be sticking in it poetry, prose, random musings, things that take my fancy and more than likely lots of pictures of cats. I hope you find something to amuse and/or interest you here.

Book of Love - chapter 2 - English Sonnet.


We shared so much together in our youth
And yet our differences split us wide,
And made a gap that no pretence could hide
Where each had their own version of the truth
We disagreed and fought with claw and tooth
With bitter words and comments oh so snide
But in that conflict one thing did abide
A deep but basic universal truth.
That love and friendship can exist apart,
For you were always there within my heart,
No matter what the taunt, how sharp the dart,
Loves shield was planted long before the start.


  1. Well done Penny !
    What form are you using?
    We need to be told so we can follow along ...Tee hee hee

  2. you nailed the relationship between siblings.Great going.

  3. THe English sonnet is 16 lines

  4. Doh! I've got Keats 'On First Looking into Chapman's Homer' stuck in my head and slipped into an Italian sonnet. I like this one so I will write something else as chapter two.
