six hundred sonnets seems to me a lot
of words and rhymes in just under a year
if i hadn't seen the count i'd almost swear
the number was created by some sot
i stop here for a moment just to jot
down this poem then i must take the air
and do such things as fall under my care
to do my duty and to pay my scot
i started this for fun no better cause
to wake my muse and let her take command
of mind and hand for short expanse of time
i've knuckled under to her solemn laws
written some things i hope you understand
and done my best to stick to honest rhyme
