Three Quatrains Sonnet Share

Opening

Share the three quatrains of your sonnet with your partner.

  • Do these first 12 lines fit the proper syllable and rhyming patterns? If not, help each other fix them so they comply with the requirements.
  • Remember that the last two lines of a sonnet, the rhyming couplet, are special. Together, they can reinforce or totally change the way the reader thinks about the poem and its ideas.
  • As you work, think about the topic of your partner’s sonnet and the topic of your own. What are some ways you could end your own sonnet?
