Sonnetina Uno Notes

The Sonnetina Uno is a ten-line stanza poem, composed of lines of decasyllabic or iambic lines of blank verse.

Example

Beating the Sunrise by Jez Farmer

To rise early and head out to the lake
A fisherman’s plan of action is set
With rods and tackle sat beside the door
His alarm set to beat the rising sun
And in first rays of light he finds his spot
While sitting watching swims gathering in
From ground bait to casting out the first line
The stress of living fades away with ease
As silence waits for the all-telling tug
Fish play catch-me-if-you-can with a bite
