Terza Rima Sonnet: Summer Heat

Terza Rima Sonnet

Summer Heat

T’was hot as though it were a summer’s night!
I tossed and then turned seeking his Lordship Sleep…
Heartless, elusive, though seek him I might.

I was in Morpheus’ valley deep,
When Hades call came for me to come out…
Sweat covered  I was no longer asleep!

Once awake there was really little doubt,
African heat has come visiting us.
From flooding we’ll soon feel the autumn draught.

Last week snow and now the desert’s red dust!
‘Tis true the saying that the weather is king…
And in those nobles you cannot place your trust.

So I’ll hear the blackbirds and sparrows sing!
(Take note: I’ll remove the duvet first thing.)

n.b. it may because I had a sleepless night as related in the poem, but I found this a difficult poem to write 😉

For Cubby’s Challenge entitled Circus of Dreams

  1. I have also had many sleepless nights due to being too hot or too cold. The difficulties you may have experienced writing this are not manifested in the poem itself as it flows beautifully. You did a fantastic job with the terza rima sonnet! 🙂


    • Ah…thanks so much…it did create me a lot of problems and had to edit it a couple of times to get it just to be readable… 🙂 I don’t usually have the problem.

    • Well….I did fall asleep in my easy chair whilst trying to write a poem 😉 Haven’t been to bed yet, still too early, only 7:00 pm….thanks for asking and hope you get a good night’s sleep when the time comes!
