Modern Sonnets – Snow White’s Sonnet

Traditional poetry forms have given way to a wave of free verse, so it can take a while to find modern sonnets. This is my attempt a writing one.

Snow White’s Sonnet

I'm not inclined to do your work today
would rather sip some wine and plan how I
could go outside, trick dwarfs and steal away
not toil and wash and clean and sing on high

but walk through woods alone amazed by bloom
would dance to tunes so sweet and talk to birds
on how the world with all its doom and gloom
still shines so bright in shades beyond my words

Not eat the apple Eve once dared to take
not lay in wait for prince to kiss and wed
but run and jump for joy that I could make
my way in thunder, hail and snow, not dead

but fierce and strong, stomp forth in boots
without a thought or care for knight or chutes.
