    Poem Commentary

    My first ever sonnet. Please don't be too harsh.
    My homecoming back to the continental United States after a little while in Europe. What do you think?

    A Wondrous Homecoming

    Return home, to a hail of accolade,
    And yet, I wonder if it is worthwhile,
    For if not virtue of heart that I bade,
    So tied to myself the thought to sessile,
    And yet to virtue unaccustom'd,
    Driven by thirst for brilliance at heart,
    Spoken lust'rous thought I find accustom'd,
    And so yet, over yonder I depart,
    A over a year I return to land,
    Sailing ships in plethora I return,
    From seeing the world, I make up to stand,
    The face of the earth gazes back quite stern,
    I wonder if my journey has been worthwhile,
    Or simply something yet a mem'ry filed.

    Nice Job.....I was always terrible at Sonnets. I love the word choice and the flow of the poem. Nice.

    amazingly written piece, lovely in content and the flow was on point. a very impressive write indeed.

    Poetry is what is lost in translation.
