Sonnet Experience....Cyhydedd Fer Sonnet

Sonnet writing was something new
To me, so I thought I would do
One. 'It is catching,' some did say
'Once addicted, there you will stay.”
But though I tried to get one done,
Juggled words, the war was not won.
I thought "This is not going to be,
This sonnet thing is not for me."
So I left 'sonnetry' alone
Though I read, no writing was done.
It took long to try one again,
Eureka... there was not much pain!
They're lovely I have to confess
And they no longer cause me stress.
