Example Poem
A Junction      (Grammarian Sonnet)
I don t know how you’ve done it for a year!
You dug right in and found yourself a home
and in all that time we’ve not shared a poem;
I stick with friends and very rarely roam.
We’ve both been pretty busy, that is clear!
Form poetry, it seems appeals to you.
That’s wonderful because that’s what I do.
Your birthday can’t slip by without our note,
and for this date I chose a new type sonnet.
I’ve written every kind there is dog gone it.
Not quite but I’m alive and working on it.
For Debbie Embrey this will be my quote.
Our mutual disconnect now should end.
I’ll click on fav; you do it too, new friend.
