A poetry professor told me that if I mastered the sonnet I would be able to write anything Help for the iambic pentameter of ten syllables is hard to find. The sound of a sonnet reminds me of riding a horse. I prefer the short didactic rhythms of nursery rhymes. I think I need to practice.
Iambic pentameter is one horse
walking two and a half steps down the road
I prefer to walk three and a half steps
on my own two feet, thank you.
