O' what tortures doth thee press Naniness?
Hast thou bee's swarm hidden in thy bonnet,
As thou dost perplex with thy wordiness?
Bardess, what creature this, evil sonnet?
That doth confound poetic neophyte.
As did Moses, lead to thy promised land,
With thy learned teachings, show me bard's light,
So I might scribe as doth thou bardess hand.
I fear I sink in ocean of despair,
As from mine head, with trembling hand I pull,
What doth remain, what once was known as hair,
I beg of thee, as runneth out of mine bull,
I close with this, in all seriousness,
I read in awe, poetic gems of Ness.

You sure pulled this one off, Mike! And very well with such great humor! Seems to me to be a most difficult form...?...any more sonnets up your sleeve...?...or is all the hair gone from your head? hehehehehehehe

I'm spending a leisurely afternoon here, pouring through what seems an endless number of posts I've not read, and I come upon this. Mike, you're awesome. How can I ever thank you for this wonderful sonnet? .... and for continuing to grace our ears with your wonderful work..... Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you...
Nancy..
