The Friday 56: Sonnets

The Friday 56 is a bookish meme hosted by Storytime with Tonya. It's really easy (and fun!) to participate.

*Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
*Turn to page 56 and find the fifth sentence.
*Post that sentence (plus one or two more if you like) along with these instructions on your blog or (if you do not have your own blog) in the comments section below.
*Post a link back to this blog and Storytime with Tonya.
*Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST!

Here's mine from The Art of the Sonnet by Stephen Burt & David Mikics:

Fortune our fancy-God, to vary liketh,
Place is not bound to things within it placed,
The present time upon time passed striketh,
With Phoebus' wandering course the earth is graced.

Oh, this sounds very intriguing...when I study it more, and after more coffee...LOL.

Thanks for sharing.

Sounds interesting. I'm not fond of poetry, but only because I don't understand it most of the time. Have a great day!

Just Books

Nice, it almost reads like a riddle.
