Meta-Sonnet

Give me a thought to think, a pen to write
Give me a pinch of romance for a start
Give me some time, and soon it sees the light
A piece of poetry, a piece of art

By careful crafting I will make it rhyme
And give it metre, rhythm, outer form
Will use much effort, and a lot of time
To have it fit an arbitrary norm

But poetry is more than crafting lines
The force of feelings needs to be put in
‚Tis through emotion that a poem shines
‚Tis force of love and hate that makes it win

The most impressive poems, to my mind,
Show craft and feeling skilfully combined.
