Accidental Sonnet

poem by: Rhys Aquinas
Written on Nov 14, 2017

Just as I was reviewing some of what I've penned
I noticed a set rhyme scheme only changing at the end
And to tell you the truth, my poem is a sort of sonnet
I had never noticed this until I clicked on it.

In length 'tis fourteen lines;
In tune it has set rhymes;
Three stanzas each with lines numbering four,
And a final two to close like the closing of a door.

This one is just a poem
Nothing special here
Like it's author, just a man
Nothing to revere.

It's not truly a traditional one
But it fits the rules, so now I'm done.
