Another sonnet* inspired by one by glasshill called ''playmates''I hope its not too similar.
* this is a ''Shakespearian '' or ''English" sonnet that is; fourteen lines of iambic pentameter with a rhyme scheme of ABAB CDCD EFEF and a concluding rhyming couplet GG

so I can't just cut out the last two lines but maybe I could rewrite them... but I'd rather not.....KOTC

new game

The morning swimming in your brimming eyes
Is full of promise as the new day breaks
Twin fires reflecting endless sun-filled skies
Two worlds that shimmer in those deep blue lakes

We'll go together into the morning
A childhood friendship on a new born day
No place for tears in this new world dawning
Like whispered kisses, let them fade away

We'll walk to hills that shine as bright as glass
And the bejewelled playground in the sun
And to the far off fields with beaded grass
For this new game is ours, and just begun

Maybe you trust too much, I will admit
If I'm too cautious now, well, so be it.

  I really like this one.

The lines and rhymes feel sooth to me. In my mind I hear the Bard speaking them.

I like the last two lines as cntrast to the others. Just me, but I'd keep them.

Very nice.

  This is a strong poem that carried well all the way thru
The last two lines could have been a little stronger but even with them it still flows well
A very good write
Take Care

  I love this except I'm not too sure about the last lines... I feel the poem would be perfect with those two lines out. It feels like you were about to lead onto another poem, which, you may be... I love the feeling you give this like the feeling of new love happiness and feeling each other out Very Sweet and hope to hear more Peace Mysterious

  This reminds me of that line in Van Morrison's "Brown Eyed Girl": "Down in the hollow playing a new game." This is really nice. Your work is very good even though I don't normally like rhyme. The first and third stanzas are nearly perfect. I don't think you need they hyphen in far off, and I think the way you're using "may be" that it should be one word. Great work, Amy

  This had a very tranquil feel that puts the reader in a great state of mind from your first line. I'd have to agree with maybe dropping the last two lines...they do seem a bit out of place becuase they don't give literal imagry and connections but instead metabolical which isn't the obvious view of your first part. Besides that though this was very well written.great write. keep writing.

  I like it , haven't read the one by Glasshill so I wouldn't know how alike they are but this is very well done, beautiful imagery and a very peaceful only suggestion might be to drop the last couple lines, for some reason they just didn't seem to roll with the rest of it, just a thought, other than that, nicely done...

  Is not the purpose of the final couplet, to contrast the thoughts produced it the previous verses.
Each stanza has its unique job to do in a Sonnet, I'm not sure right now without my 'book'.
I do belive a literature class might be needed to pre-explain these 'old styles' before commenting is allowed.
But what I read here is two childhood sweethearts and a new game(love maybe) of friendship whatever, and the final couplet tells us 'You' are cautious, maybe about the others trusting too much.
Am I off course here?
