Sonnet About a Moog

Post by Jrayk Roze » Mon Feb 16, 2009 6:59 pm

I had to write a sonnet for English homework, so what better to write about then some metal and wood? :lol:

"A Sonnet must follow strict requirements.

-It contains 14 lines divided into 3 quatrains and a concluding couplet that follows a strict rhyme scheme (ABAB CDCD EFEF GG)"

"Sonnet for a Voyager"

Your composure is divine
You embody consistence
Your knobs are sublime
They bare perfect resistance

Electricity is your blood
You will grow invariably
Truly, you are like a spud
You'll always keep me company

You're as sober as you are fun
Your oscillators are iconic
I can hear their vibration
You're as addictive as chronic

You have a unique and marvelous sound
That's why you're the best synth around

Very good... but I always thought sonnets were in iambic pentameter.

It's in English format. It's also a highschool english class.

Well still in any class teaching something like that they should teach it correctly.

Im a real big fan of raising the hell out of the educational standards.

Very Nice! 8)

I hope you don't mind the suggestion, I wrote a variation on the CDCD section for fun (invariably and company didn't rhyme well to me)

Electricity is your blood
You will grow invariably
You tower over me bud
And your height is scarrin' me!

Much better :lol:

I wrote this the day before it was due, the only quatrain I'm proud of is the first one.
