Swashbuckling Cephalopod Sonnets! Deadline 9/30 Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

Complicated thread splits don't seem to work. Continuing sonnets here


It's a well known fact that the octopus is the most lyrical of all Poseidon's children. The iambic lull of the Sea, and their fondness for tapping quatrains with their doubling arms gives them a love of Sonnets above all other forms. If Epimetheus had given them quills with their ink, they would write themselves and Man would never hear from them again. But, alas, he had but one gift per creature, so an octopus has no manner to channel a Muse, and must instead hear her inspired lyric from one who can.
Are you that one?


Post original sonnets in this thread. You may post as many sonnets as you like, so long as they are complete, distinct, and original.

Sonnets must follow basic Shakesperean sonnet rules.*
Iambic pentameter: Each line has ten syllables, with the stress on every second syllable.
Three quatrains with a rhyming couplet: the lines must rhyme abab cdcd efef gg.
* If you would like to appeal to their Octaval nature and undertake a Petrarchan sonnet, then by all means attempt. But remember the much stricter rules of the Italian form.

Content is open. But with octopi for judges there may be some biases.

The deadline for entries is 11:59pm, pacific, September 30. That is, the very end of the day.


Whoever moves the heart of an Octopoda judgel shall be his or her guide in the terrestrial realm henceforth. But be warned, for once they get a taste of true poetry, they will demand it until the end of their days.

Wait, can't I do mine in octameter? It'd make more sense for an octopus.

Uh, just kidding. :)

Sonnet of a pleading soul

Why leave right now with so much left to say
What have i done for that look on your face
O' I know you when you watch me that way
I am sorry that i don't have her grace
Or that warm soft special place in your heart
I would love to hold you close everyday
Honestly saying this rips me apart
Everynight i'd love you in everyway
Anytime anywhere inside and out
So now i can say truth be told and known
only if it twere me your mind thinks about
In my heart my words are now proudly shown
With your hands 'tis my world that is now held
So now love me or i be damned to hell

by ladyredtears


I hope you liked, i know that the rhyming cuplet at the end is a 1/2 rhyme but i checked this out and it is acceptable (i checked with my lecturer) just to be sure. good luck everyone who enters this contest. Oh and thanks to Nemo i think it is that started this contest always much appreciated :)

Distant Longings

My heart goes out across the sea each day,
The great expanse between us brings despair.
Oh how the world without you seems so grey,
Each night I dream of you, my lady fair.
Each word we pass between us swells the rift,
Makes every passing day more hard to bear.
I wander through my life astray, adrift
My thoughts are all of you, my only care.
My one true want would be to cross the sea,
To come to you and hold you in my arms.
I'd give up all, my wealth means naught to me,
If I could but experience your charms.
My lot it seems is that I linger here
And dream of you, so fair, so far, so dear.

son.net - pirates online

We enter events for creatures furry
Or for their value in pieces of eight
Ship races encourage us to hurry
For the best things come to those who don't wait
Swordfights, brawling and drinking cause debates
This sword is no good and that fight was rigged
The teams were unfair, they had ultimates
He put chips in the corner then just swigged
Despite our complaints we all still take part
There's fun to be had in all of these games
We entered a contest of parrot art
Some people won sloops with chat-filtered names
Thanks for the events and for all the fish
Including the octopus - yeah, I wish

If you insist. But I doubt most people would notice the difference from Shakesperean.

I would with octopus begin parlay
Oh, to converse in their own native tounge!
(or native beak? They're hard to tell that way.
The language, anyway, they teach their young.)

Explore the subtleties of idiom,
As diver plumbs the depth of deepest sea.
To know another's language, so say some
Is so to know their mind, most verily.

Alas, my longing's fruitless, I should think -
None of the land have learned their ocean speech,
Nor read their poetry, writ in their ink.
Thus lies this, my objective, out of reach.

So, as it seems I'll never reach this goal
My sonnets must the octopus console...

Pirate's Sunrise

Daring sweet dreams of richest tales, alas,
I sailed upon the ocean's briney spray,
Across the waters and islands surpass,
Guided by dolphins that led me away.

O' do I dream of riches beyond me,
Searching the waves for dreams that rise,
Taking and pillaging all that I see,
Such is the call at a Pirate's Sunrise.

We set from shore one glorious mornin',
The sea spray drenching our battle hard brow,
Hark! On the waves a ship without warnin',
Our nines rang out their call from stern to bow.

Down went the mariner, sunk to the brine,
Thy gold doth shimmer, your booty is mine.

Octopi Speak

Now say ye, No octopi can yet speak?
Or, her words be writ upon fair parchment?
To ye I say, "Notice thy own failed beak."
For Octopi words have often been lent.

True it may be, their words are naught oft heard,
But read upon, by scholars the world over.
Their ink was once used to write out the word,
Of royal decree, bards, and a lover.

Many a sonnet to parchments been writ,
Set down with ink of octopi descent.
Nary a word would so oft be remit,
If our Octopi friend's ink was not lent.

Meter and prose would not be so profound,
If never an Octopi shared her sound.

Chef's Surprise

What gleam I see, as cast from troubled eyes
A single drop of sorrow breaketh free.
Of horror, shock, discomfort and surprise,
Thine lot seems cast, my small friend of the sea

Dear cousins sliced, and roasted for their meat
He soon shall join his kin, food for the feast
Such terror looms, a shadow of defeat
A fear not known to this eight-legged beast

To writhe away, though efforts be in vain,
the chance is worth the danger it may bring.
The chef now sees, and makes haste to detain,
A nearby knife gives hope, on which to cling

With suctioned limb, he grasps at wood and steel
This chef would torture not another meal.

Fred the Rescuer

A rage of waves swarming the once calm sea
This fierce storm will surely be my demise
Typhoon winds break my masts while bilge rats flee
Oh these are the days and nights I despise

More green water crashes over the bow
Hold fast! Another swell is coming toward
It hits the hull and there goes today?s chow
I slip! And dear lord I?ve gone overboard

I come to hours later on a sandy beach
Huzzah! The sea has not become my grave
Some ?thing? is stuck to me like a big leach
I?d not been brought here by water or wave

A huge tentacle releases its grip
Without which I?d have gone down with my ship.

An Octopus's Grammar

It?s ?octopi,? not ?octopuses,? mate.
The ?u-s? suffix always becomes ?i.?
I try to help, not try to aggravate.
Our grammar helps us to see eye to eye.

It?s ?octopuses.? It?s not ?octopi.?
We?re speaking English, so its rules are used.
It?s not even from Latin. Why the ?i??
I hate it when our grammar is abused.

You both are right. Yes, it?s incredible.
According to the dictionary, mates,
It?s either of them that?s acceptable.
A grammar?s depth is one of its best traits.

Not everyone knows all the grammar rules.
So look it up; no need to look like fools.

---

As is wont to happen, I'm sure there are grammatical mistakes in my grammarian sonnet. However, they are perfectly acceptable in this case, thanks to poetic license. :)

Oh Dearest mollusk, heed unto my charms;
For ages past, from high in tall crow-nests,
I watched you ride along my crewsmen's arms.
Of all the seas' familiars, I attest:

You are the only one whom I desire:
I'd loathe to rule an island by the day;
I have no black hat, naught but plain attire;
I want for naught but Octopodidae.

But woe! I lack the skill of Silverdawg,
Of Shuranthae's wit, too, I feel devoid,
Nor Looterati humor/arts of grog,
My shoulder aches with a familiar void.

But here, my dear, is how I will succeed,
For a familiar I do sorely need!

Tell me, kind sir, some more about my eyes.
'tis not in vanity that this i seek -
'pon one kind word from you, all sadness dies,
an' at a smile, sweet, my knees are weak...

so speak to me and banish from my mind
the thought that unrequited goes my love
whate'er i hear just makes me feel, in kind
an insecur'ty - i'm not worthy of...

the blessing that is your most gracious wit...
the pleasure of your company most dear...
the way you make my heart flutter a bit
at ev'ry time i'm aware that you're here.

a word or ten... a million words from you
can't make this seem not too good to be true.

Ode to the Giant Pacific Octopus

Enteroctopus dolfleini
Yer name rolls off the tongue like buttered rum
Th? largest octopus I e?er did spy
Were o? yer kind, I?d swear to me own mum.

No other critter in the wide blue sea
Could hope te match yer splendid rubb?ry form
Yer suck?ry arms a-writhing tentacley
The chameleonic feats ye can perform!

Oh long, so long has it been mine true wish
Te idle ?way an hour, even two
Askin of ye, what?s yer fav?rite dish,
Or tellin stories of deep ocean blue

Me shoulder I have carefully laid bare
Oh won?t you come and settle yerself there?

A Lament for Pete

And here we mourn the fate of Octo-Pete
The bravest far of all brave Ceph'lopods.
Who tried the strangest, noblest Octo-feat
And lived, despite the most unhappy odds

For Pete and his staunch crew had drawn attack
From filthsome pirates and their monkies foul
And worse, Pete's ship for cannonballs did lack!
The Captain, lost, thought to throw in the towel...

But Pete was braver far than any 'round
With verve and spunk beyond most mortal reach
When ball nor shot nor ammo could be found
He packed his squishy self into the breech.

O pity Pete and mourn his little legs
Alas! One tentacle and seven pegs.

A Pirates Tale

a pirate once said to me,
listen, yer doing it all wrong!
when yer sailing on the sea,
sing a piratey song!
listen to yer captain,
flirt with em too,
when ye set sail, make sure yer strapped in,
and always have fun with yer crew!
they bade me farwell,
waved goodbye,
i waved as well,
and turned with a sigh,
and looked for a job at the docks,
as i knew then,
that a piratey life ROCKS!

When a Man Loves a Celphalopod

Olivia! To me you are most dear,
Depart that Cleaver man, please do, my sweet!
His beard is very, very rough, I hear,
And may scratch your beautiful octo-meat.

Olivia, my oceanic love,
Deny that fake upon which now you sit,
I beg, elope tonight with me, my dove.
To all, our endless love we must admit.

It is not trivial, our love, that is.
Just us, Olivia. Yes, you and I,
For Cleaver claims you're his, and only his.
We'll show them all, our love none can deny.
