LoSoRhyMo #1: Once is a trend, twice a tradition

I’ll let this sonnet do its own explaining. The reference at the start is to these blog entries.

Sonnet 1: Here we go again
My faithful readers may remember
a year ago, in twenty-ten
this blog devoted all November
to fourteen sonnets. Now, again
(let others grow their mo’s for cancer,
or think NaNoWriMo’s an answer
to life’s questions, I don’t say
All Saints or Sadie Hawkin’s Day
should be ignored, or Kristallnacht)
LoSoRhyMo* shifts into gear
with rhymes and iambs. Now no fear
will cause this challenge to be ducked.
There’s work that’s waiting to be done,
but sonneteering’s much more fun.
