    Red the moor like a sea till the end of the world
    and grey the sea and grey the mist
    low over the sea
    and me and you and nobody else
    till the end of the world

    I've cowardly written my Bible
    three words drawn with my foot
    in the long long sand
    from the sky to the sea

    You read them and you laughted
    you laughted a big long laugh
    as you were afraid
    that moment would end
    or last
    till the end of the world

    What a picture, what a photograph
    Poor old soul, blimey, what a joke
    Hat blown off in a cloud of smoke
    Clap 'ands, stamp yer feet
    Bangin' on the big bass drum
    What a picture, what a picture
    Um-tiddly-um-pum-um-pum-pum
    Stick it in your fam'ly album

    I have seen many rhyming scheems on "sonnets", but I have not seen this patern before. Also, I don't see the clearly defined "14" lines.

    Just my observations.

    you are technically speaking about poetry.
    what a wonderful tautology.
    i used the word sonnet in the title of this collection of works, just as a tribute to my friend william.
    his sonnets have been along this year a company, if not a consolation
    however, i'm sorry to have hurt your sensibility.
    In my next life, i'll always stick to iambic pentameters. I promise
