11 (who?)
The written word is wondrous in it's prime
The glory of the ages past abound
For ink and paper forming wit and rhyme
To spring from open lips as soulful sound

An art perfected in the days of yore
Blank canvas soon adorned in blackest ink
A siren song that sings of those before
As deep into the realms of lore you sink

When man and woman first began to write
Their wisdom was preserved for us to know
As changing, yet unchanging as the night
The echoes of the past forever show

But to the pen a blade cannot compare
As instrument of chaos and despair
A Shakespearian-style Sonnet. First time writing a sonnet, but it was fun to do.

I like this one, very descriptive.

Feels to me like it has more to say about the blade, but it wouldnt be a sonnet then would it :p
