I have been studying the Renaissance with my seventh graders and challenged them to attempt writing a Shakespearean sonnet. However, I agreed to attempt one myself.
“The Father Looked Down”
By: Elizabeth Baize
Against a shore of sparkling crystal sand
The waves began to plan a massive siege.
They swore to sweep the castle that did stand
Into a flattened plain of less prestige.
With silent swells they gathered for the fray,
Then rushed the waiting shore with sudden surge.
The sand, defenseless in the foaming spray,
Slipped silently aside as on the verge
Of victory the waves drew back to view
The conquest that within their reach did lie.
But lo, a child did strive with strength anew
To save the castle and the waves defy.
The final rush of desperate waters churned;
The child looked up and smiled – the tide had turned.
