The Making of a Sonnet

First what makes up a Shakespearean Sonnet
A simple question with the answer forthwith
Think of costumes you wear with a Bonnet
The look would be improper without it

There must be four lines three times and then two
Each of the four must rhyme every other
Then to complete you rhyme the last two
These lines combat as sister and brother

And of course there must be a story told
One that will always seek to discover
It may be filled with love if you be so bold
Or a simple prose without a lover

You must decide then keep the word count true
Then each Sonnet you write will reflect you.

(From Copy and Paste Poem #53 by Wolrad)
