Jenny WyattMr. SmithEnglish 2 period 1May 16, 20181.Sonnet: William Shakespeare’s sonnet XIV Not from the stars do I my judgment pluck; (A)And yet methinks I have astronomy, (B)But not to tell of good or evil luck, (A)Of plagues, of death, or season’s quality; (B)Nor can I fortune to brief minutes tell, (A)Pointing to each his thunder, rain and wind, (B)Or say with princess if it shall go well, (A)By oft predict that I in heaven find: (B)But from thine eyes my knowledge I derive, (A)And, constant stars, in them I read such art (B)As truth and beauty shall together thrive, (A)If from thyself to store thou wouldst convert; (B)Or else of thee this I prognosticate: (C)Thy end is truth’s and beauty’s doom and date. (C)1.Narrative or dramatic poetry: The Winds of Fate by Ella Wheeler WilcoxOne ship drives east and another drives westWith the selfsame winds that blow.Tis the set of sailsAnd not the galesWhich tells us the way to go.Like the winds of thee seas are the ways of fate,As we voyage along through life:Tis the set of the soul.That decides its goalAnd not the calm or the strife.The author’s theme is destiny and listening to your heart. It states “Tis the set of the soul, that decides its goal…” Deep down we know what we want, what we dream about. It's up to us to listen to our heart.
