Poems classified as: Sonnet

A genre of poetry originated in Italy, Sonnet is a poem of fourteen lines that follows a strict rhyme scheme and specific structure. William Shakespeare being the father of Sonnets, this poetic form is written in iambic pentameter, where an unstressed syllable is followed by a stressed syllable five times. The rhyme scheme in a Shakespearean sonnet is a-b-a-b, c-d-c-d, e-f-e-f, g-g; the last two lines being a rhyming couplet. Though sonnets have come a long way, they still have the charm of an old poetic pattern that’s wonderful to read.
