finally finished my sonnet!

Post  TrueFan on Tue Mar 01, 2016 5:27 am

Finally sat down and wrote my sonnet:

When I saw Dal upon the glossy page
I said who is this doll with charming pout?
Although she is but thirteen years of age
She seems to know what life is all about.

I glimpsed her in the magazine Haute Doll
And knew at once I had to bring her home
I never thought I would collect them all
But sure enough that is what I have done.

To me there is no fairer doll than she
Her gaze is wide, her lips are sad but still
There’s something there that so appeals to me
I’ll pay whatever price or cost or bill.

She fills my house from highest point to floor
Yet always, always there is room for more.

I love all the poems in this thread!  Such variety from haiku to limericks to cinquains to visual poems and now a sonnet!

Your sonnet is beautiful, True!

Smile

One last haiku from me about Moe, my first Dal...

A preowned Jolie,
Her heterochromia
brought her here to me

I wanted to have a last hurrah, but alas... too late and no idea.
Great sonnet, True.  And I always like how so many haikus seem to carry more "story" than their few words.  
It was fun reading everyone's poems and I thought it was a great idea to start the anniversary activities.

Thank you, KiraKira, Alliecat, and Chyntia!

I think we can declare this event celebrating Dal a complete success! Thank you to everyone who wrote poems and who commented on the efforts of others.

Sometime this week I will draw a name as the winner of the calendar and start a spreadsheet of total entries for each person for the drawing at the end of the year.

I will leave this thread open, so people can add poems later if they want.

Congratulations, dargosmydaddy. It was fun reading everyone's poems.
True, you should post some photos of your calendar -- I bet some others would like to see what it looks like too.

I will do so. I've been making a wall calendar almost every year since I started collecting Dal. It gives me a chance to enjoy some of my best photos from the previous year. One year I even made doll-sized versions for the PUDDLE gift bags!
