Jamie’s First Sonnet

Here, unedited in any way, is my 10 year old son Jamie’s sonnet, which he wrote this morning (Perdita, I should explain, is our 9 week-old English Setter):




Perdita the dog, she is such fun

She thinks my hand is very tasty

To nibble away she is too hasty

She likes to lie in the morning sun


By now its noon, the sun is bright

Perdita’s stuck in the nets again

Then she cowers-she’s scared of the train

And we start soothing her till night


Perdita goes to sleep with peace

As soon as she wakes its down to the beach

Lots of attention, lots of fun!


When she’s home she goes for a rest

And then she starts to eat with jest!

Perdita feels she weighs a tonne!
