Sonnets – not just for
   Shakespeare!
         For the love of money…
How do I love money? So many ways!
I love money like a bear loves honey
Money is what keeps my mind in a daze
It makes me laugh at things that aren’t funny
I love thee because I want more each day
I wish I had a big pile to jump in
I love thee like a child loves clay
Money and I must be some type of kin
I love thee like no one else ever will
People might do anything for money
But I do not love thee enough to steal
Money is what keeps food in my tummy
I pray to God to not live without thee
All I need is money and money me.
             Now it’s your turn!
• What was the previous sonnet about?
   – Love of money
• What did you think of it?
• I bet you could do better.
• Take this opening line:
   – Darling iPod, you fill my days with joy
   – ????
      • What second line would you add to this? Remember, it
        should have 10 syllables.
      • Think silently for 4 minutes, and write down your thoughts.
               Pair-Share
• Turn to the person sitting beside you, and
  share your ideas.

• Between the two of you, decide on one to
  share with the rest of the class. You have
  one minute.
           Quick Brainstorm
• Think back to the Shakespearean rhyme
  scheme… what word would the third line
  have to rhyme with?
  – Darling iPod, you fill my days with joy
  – Good job! The last word of the next line must
    rhyme with “joy.”

• In 30 seconds, list as many words as
  possible that rhyme with “joy.” Ready, go!
             Partner Time

• You and your partner have 4 minutes:

• Come up with a third line that has 10
  syllables (of course), and that ends in one
  of the words that rhymes with “joy.”

• Wow – you just finished almost a quarter
  of a sonnet!
       Yuck – more love???
• You just began a sonnet about love for an
  iPod. But…
  – Does a sonnet have to deal with love?


• Raise your hand – what are some other
  topics that a sonnet could be about?

• Here are some examples…
      Clever, but can you spot the
               mistake?
  The sonnet form is old and full of dust
  And yet I want to learn to write one well.
  To learn new forms and grow is quite a must,
  But I will learn it quickly, I can tell.
  And so I sit, today, with pen in hand,
  Composing three new quatrains with a rhyme.
  The rhythm flows like wind at my command.
  The A-B-A-B form consumes my time.
  But I’m not done until there’s eighteen lines.
  One ending couplet, after three quatrains.
  I’ve tried to write this new form several times.
  The effort’s huge; I have to rack my brain.
  But I persist, my eighteen lines now done.
  I wrote my poem; my sonnet work is won.

                       Entry Task
Schedule: entry task, Latin Lesson 13, student-created examples,
    WYO time. (Take out Sonnet and LL13 – stamp).

On the entry task sheet:
•   How would you divide this line into iambic pentameter?
        From fairest creatures we desire increase,
                          (Sonnet 1)
•   Translate that line into good, spoken English. Is he correct in
    his statement?

Homework Due Tomorrow:
1. Complete exercise 3-4 of LL13.
2. Complete and type WYO sonnet (Bring rubric and attach it).

Objective: Students will understand the form of a Shakespearean
sonnet, and be able to apply the knowledge to their own sonnet.
A sonnet can also tell a story,
as in the next two examples…
       Cinderella in Sonnet Form
•   As Cinderella swept the kitchen floor
•   she dreamed about the Prince's ball that night
•   a perfect chance to meet a paramour
•   forbidden by Step-Mother out of spite.
•   The sisters sashayed off - an ugly sight
•   and Cinders felt her lonely teardrops fall
•   then suddenly there came a flash of light
•   a fairy said: "You're going to the ball!"
•   "Be home by twelve, remember!" came the call
•   but dancing with a Prince can hypnotize
•   this man so rugged, handsome, dark and tall
•   he held her close and stared into her eyes.
•   She had to flee on hearing midnight's bell,
•   he found her with a shoe - it turned out well.

• By Graeme King
      Star Wars I in Sonnet Form
•   Naboo was under siege but not done yet,
•   two Jedi riding shotgun for the Queen
•   broke through the Empire's evil starship net,
•   but damage forced them down on Tattooine.
•   They found a boy - a slave - who loved to race
•   and bet their ship that he would win next day,
•   he gunned his pod and ended in first place,
•   they didn't know a Sith was on the way.
•   The Senate was a crock - no help at all,
•   so Jar Jar Binks helped organize a fray,
•   young Obi-Wan dispatched the bad Darth Maul
•   as Anakin flew up and saved the day.
•   The Jedi conquered with their swords of light
•   the kid would now be trained to be a knight.

• By Graeme King
            What makes this not a
           Shakespearean Sonnet?
•   'Tis very odd that poets should suppose
•   There is no poetry about a nose,
•   When plain as is the nose upon your face,
•   A noseless face would lack poetic grace.
•   Noses have sympathy: a lover knows
•   Noses are touched when the lips are kissing:
•   Who would care to kiss where nose was missing?
•   Why, what would be the fragrance of a rose,
•   Where would be our mortal means of telling
•   Whether vile or wholesome odour flows
•   Around, if we owned no sense of smelling?
•   I know a nose, a nose no other knows,
•   'Neath starry eyes, o'er ruby lips it grows;
•   Beauty in its form, music in its blows.
