Okay, friends. I really need your help on this one. We have to write a sonnet for English to a character from Frankenstein (I chose the blind man, De Lacey). Our question or concern must reflect on of the themes from the book, and the sonnet must follow all of the structural rules. I'm way out of my comfort zone, but that's no excuse for mediocrity! *epic music in the background* But I have my white flag ready. Halp!
Do you owe nothing to those struggling?
The weak doth look to the strong for guidance.
As the bird soars among the clouds, singing,
His wings are envied by the earthly ants.
Abandoned by a river were the twins
To be found by an unlikely mother.
If the fierce wolf saw not their furless skin,
Should not all men call each other "brother"?
Of material riches you have none,
De Lacey, nor have you God's gift of sight.
But for this wretch no more could you have done
Than to rescue him with love from his plight.
As stories tell, love be not proud, but blind.
Thus no better man than you could he find.
