  1. You took the Shakespearean form and adapted it somewhat to suit your subject and your voice. The poem is full of longing, and the loss of love during a separation. Very poignant. You adapted the form by shortening the lines to tetrameter. Not the standard length but very effective here. A very touching poem. Well done.

    • Ugh! Meter has never been my strong suit. I’d never get a sonnet out if I followed the rules to the T, the substance of the voice is the deciding factor over the correctness of the form. I’m glad you liked it regardless, thanks Gay!

  2. A beautiful poem. I’m honored by woman who wait for men to return. A man need reason and purpose. A good woman is a very good reason to come home. Thank you for the excellent poem.

So? What do you think?
