(BUFFY-VERSE SERIES) SONNETS #028-029 of 154
SINGING LESSON

rhetorical verse in Shakespearean sonnet form
(a 2-sonnet sequence)

 }
{BVS_028_01.01} WHY WRITE "ONCE MORE, WITH FEELING" songs AGAIN?

{BVS_028_01.02} Why match the rhythm Joss used with new rhymes

{BVS_028_01.03} that fit his pattern, but give sound new spin?

{BVS_028_01.04} Not something that I'd do too many times, . . .

 
{BVS_028_01.05} . . . but it's a well-formed challenge to your skill

{BVS_028_01.06} of rhetoric, of poetry, of mind.

{BVS_028_01.07} I'm searching for a metaphor that will

{BVS_028_01.08} reveal a line of sight to which I'm blind -- . . .

 
{BVS_028_01.09} . . . will teach me things I do not know 'til now.

{BVS_028_01.10} BUT metaphors -- like Oracles -- may hide

{BVS_028_01.11} their gift of wisdom -- may well not allow

{BVS_028_01.12} transmission --- as their meanings sub-divide . . .

 
{BVS_028_01.13} . . . as diff'rent eyes and ears grab them by force.

{BVS_028_01.14} No marriage of your visions. A divorce.


{2}

{BVS_029_02.01} SO, MAYBE I will let my muse go play.

{BVS_029_02.02} Just for the moment, "clarity" my goal.

{BVS_029_02.03} Straight talk about that song here on display.

{BVS_029_02.04} As sonneteering slayers I enroll, . . .

 
{BVS_029_02.05} . . . just for this moment, in songwriting class.

{BVS_029_02.06} The joy of singing may bring in the fun

{BVS_029_02.07} to verse endeavors with more heavy mass.

{BVS_029_02.08} Leave hard-book thoughts. We're off to beachy sun . . .

 
{BVS_029_02.09} BUT
more for volleyball than even tans.{smile}

{BVS_029_02.10} How can you smack a spike without a net? {g}

{BVS_029_02.11} (Who do you think you are? Just lazy fans?!?) {ewg}

{BVS_029_02.12} In time, the ball within the lines. No sweat.

 
{BVS_029_02.13} OH DEAR, I have run out of time. I quit.

{BVS_029_02.14} Just sing the song. You'll get what there's to get. {SMILE}
