Sonnet for Iona « Previous


With homonymic play I pray you hear
and find if here I write what’s right or no:
I know in hunters’ quest the deer is dear,
Not so the useless knot for those who sew.
Pronuciation plays another game,
When route may rhyme with either ‘out’ or ‘suit’.
Though sounds conflict they signify the same
For dialect is seldom absolute.
The play of ambiguity is deft
When ambidextrous options are in sight:
The one not chosen on your right, is left,
But what you choose is on your left, and right.
The playfulness of words is quite the school
To make of me more of a Motley Fool.
