What makes up a Sonnet?
examples are the greatest

After Turkey Day, the garbage bags sat;My dog was tempted by the tasty sight.He tore them open, gorged big, and grew fat,But first he made a mess and caused some blight.

He ate some hot sauce and blueberry pies,Then laid around and moaned out loud in pain.I worried in my heart of his demise,And tried to scrub the purple carpet stain.

He slowly came around and waddled slow,His belly wide and nearly to the floor.So sad to see my hungry doggy growSo portly wide, he barely fit his door.

He survived, but still he is more than stout.I’ve learned. Next time I’ll take the garbage out!

sonnet 181

Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?

Thou art more lovely and more temperate.

Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,

And summer’s lease hath all to short a date

Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,

And often is his gold complexion dimmed;

And every fair from fair sometime declines,

By chance, or nature’s changing course untrimmed.

But thy eternal summer shall not fade

Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow’st’

Nor shall death brag thou wand’rest in his shade,

When in eternal lines to time thou grow’st,

So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,

So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.

Sonnet 18
so what does this mean

  • Paraphrase means put it in your own words, but keep it the same length
  • We’ll do stanza 1 together, but then you and your partner are on your own!
  • You will 1. Paraphrase the quatrain 2. Give the quatrain a title

change it up modern style

Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?

Thou are more lovely and more temperate.

Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,

And summer’s lease hath all to short a date.

What words do we for sure know?

Get out your dictionary apps too 

If you text, you will end. Fortunato style.

Change it up, modern style
slide11

Shall I compare you to a summer day? You’re lovelier and milder. Rough winds shake the pretty buds of May, and summer doesn’t last nearly long enough. Sometimes the sun shines too hot, and often its golden face is darkened by clouds. And everything beautiful stops being beautiful, either by accident or simply in the course of nature. But your eternal summer will never fade, nor will you lose possession of your beauty, nor shall death brag that you are wandering in the underworld, once you’re captured in my eternal verses. As long as men are alive and have eyes with which to see, this poem will live and keep you alive
