Of Greatness Calling – Poetry Challenge – Sonnet Poem

Sonnet I – The Seed

Herald kings in knightly squares
where light may shine on youth’s one chance
to leave, to hope and earn such wares
beyond the pale eyed squire’s glance.
Find amidst the people’s crowd

whose heart beats strong and sorely loud
with dreams of knighthood as a man.
So be a dream at gate’s parade
where sure his heart must hold him still?
Yet dreams tonight in summer’s glade
grow amid his strength and will,
that from his stars and purpose torn,
where through their very nature, born.

How To Over-think Almost Everything, sonnet

by Harry

Poetry challenge: Sonnet poem.

Submitted by djgrrr17

Wishing so long has all but killed my dreams,

Waiting, wondering when life will unfold
I stand amidst the sky and watch the stars,
