"Thou shouldst print more, not let that copy die"

This quote from William Schakespeare´s Sonnet No. 11 reminds the mysterious Youth of his obligation to make "copies" of himself (children), not to let the original template perish. Let us take this line a little less carnally here and instead try to further the wonderful means which the Petrarchan Sonnet Form provides to express ourselves - in our time, in our respective languages and through our own efforts - with ever new templates and prints and copies worldwide! You are kindly invited to post your pieces here or comment on the works of others so that the timeless beauty of these fourteen-line "universes in a nutshell" shall carry on. (And may the Poet smile on our effort where it not quite rises up to his standards...)

"For I am sham´d by that which I bring forth,
And so should you, to love things nothing worth." (Sonnet 72)
