we soon learn to fall in line
it is tact, not duplicity
when you ask, I say I’m fine
I stumbled too, but only once
I don’t enjoy being called a dunce
all masks constructed carefully
I choose the most appropriate
which takes me to the right gate
it’s a life lived skilfully
The challenge is to write a Sonnetina Tre
- If you are using the syllabic-count method, then down the left column write the numbers representing the syllables required for each line (typically 8 or 10). Regardless of how long you want your lines to be, they should all be the same length.
- Across from the numbers, in the right column, write the letter for your rhyme scheme, whatever you have chosen (i.e. ababccdeed).
