wow, that's really good but isn't a Shakespearean sonnet supposed to ryhme A, B, A, B. Rather than A, A, B, B like this one? And the last two lines being the only to the rhyme A, A! It creates a great image though, makes evil seem peaceful somehow, bloody brillient acheivement!

I liked the poem, but it can't truly be called a Shakespearian, which I spelled horribly wrong, sonnet. You see, a sonnet of that kind is composed abab cdcd efef gg you know? Every other line rhymes, and then a couplet at the bottom. Three quatrains and a couplet. It was still a very nice poem, but a Shakesp. Sonnet.

I really like this poem, but I believe the rhyme scheme in a shakesperean poem is slightly different. I think it is ABAB CDCD EFEF GG. Just a bit of constructive criticism.

Maybe this is nitpicking, but I thought a Shakespearean sonnet has a different rhyme scheme, as ABABCDCD EFEFGG??

I like the part:
"For them the heavens are an open book,
To anyone with sight enough to look,"

This was a great poem, but not in the proper format for a sonnet, or a shakespearian sonnet. They're generally divided eight lines on the top asking a question, or proposing something, or setting up a situation, and the bottom six lines answering the question, resolving the situation, or giving an unexpected ending. Thay also generally have a different rhyme scheme.

I do like the poem--you managed to keep the rhyme scheme you did use without it getting tacky like some people can, including myself. I'm quite impressed with that. I think some of your images are amazing, too. It was a really good poem, but I'm specializing in Shakepearian era literature and I have a thing for sonnets, and it's just a thing that really catches at my's really not a bad poem, it's just not a sonnet in the current form, and I thought I'd let you know.

Good job!

Very well written indeed :) I especially like your incorporations of Shakespeare's style of writing.
