SONNET

Example:

When Christopher Columbus was in school,

They thought they knew for sure the world was flat.

When he grew, they thought he was a fool

For challenging their law, and that was that.

When Lindbergh flew his plane across the sea,

They said that he was wrong to try the flight.

A silly man that Lindbergh sure must be!

To fly across the ocean isn’t right.

So now it’s up to you to lead the way

To challenge notions new and notions old.

Just think! You might invent something today.

Don’t be afraid! Be strong. Be brave. Be bold.

The time is right. The choice belongs to you.

The world is yours and now, what will you do?
