Sonnet: A Shakespearean sonnet consists of 14 lines, each line contains ten syllables, and each line is written in iambic pentameter in which a pattern of a non-emphasized syllable followed by an emphasized syllable is repeated five times. The rhyme scheme in a Shakespearean sonnet is ABAB CDCD EFEF GG, in which the last two lines are a rhyming couplet.

I’ve contributed the first two lines of this sonnet just to get you going. For this poem we’d like you to contribute one line each. Remember, the next line of this four line stanza must rhyme with the first line.

Papery purple silver green, grasping (Student, Egham)
