It takes a lot of time to create a sonnet. Thank you.Untitled Sonnet presented by Charlotte Ironphoenix at Story Time on 6/12/17
Through the noxious smoke of gruesome battle
The cannon fire does roar and flash,
Sheathed swords in scabbards rattle
As timber breaks with a thunderous crash.
The pirate captain gives a joyous cheer
Her crew of fearsome scoundrels full of glee,
Their prey without hope, hearts clench now in fear
While their once proud ship sinks beneath the sea.
But the real treasure that they plunder
Can be measured not in silver nor gold,
This precious thing one time torn asunder
Cannot be carried inside a ship's hold.
Once thought forever lost, now again found
Ties of new camaraderie abound.
