Teagans Selected Sonnets


I would like to thank you for visiting me again. Your emails and suggestions have all been duly noted and I hope this year we will provide just as great a pleasure as we have in the past. Please don't stop sending me your creative comments and suggestions about the poetry you would like to see here.
This year "My Selected Sonnets", will concentrate on English Sonnets of the Romantic Period around the 19th Century.
I am open to suggestions at all times and should you have a European sonnet that you like please contact me and hopefully we will be able to share it with the rest of the sonnet world.
Dante Rossettini stated; "A sonnet is a moments monument". This is precisely what I wish to create, a series of monuments to the sonnet form.

Only after the last tree has been cut down
Only after the last river has been poisoned
Only after the last fish has been caught
Only then can we realise that money can not be eaten
