Why a Sonnet?
Should you choose to write serious love rhyme,
writing to convey how you really feel,
your best bet, Sonnet; works every time,
no better choice for true thoughts' reveal.
Haiku will leave you looking vague, inept,
sestina is too scattered, thoughts confused.
Success awaits, should you choose to accept
advice from one here, time tested and mused.
Limerick might leave your mate with a smile;
acrostic entertains, but holds no spell.
Palindrome may make you seem versatile;
might as well style a ballad, for farewell.
Quatrains and a couplet, in Shakespeare's scheme;
ride the fast track then, to achieve esteem.
