A poem in the form of a sonnet with the Shakespearean sonnet rhyming scheme (abab, cdcd, efef, gg). Some in the modernist movement believed that “freedom of form” in poetry means that no one should write in traditional forms, however I believe that freedom includes the freedom to use whatever form you wish to use or feel suits your subject.
I live in the country near Lismore on the Northern Rivers region in New South Wales, Australia. Born many decades ago in Sydney, I have had many poems published in magazines and newspapers over the years and a few verse plays performed. I have also had verse riddles and brainteasers published in papers on a regular basis for over a decade.
