Greetings, one and all.

www.sonnets.org[1] is an interesting site if you want to read a bunch of
sonnets, or comments that people have made about them.  The sonnets there are
organized by period, and you can search by author and title as well.  I have
found it to be of some help, if nothing else, to get a feel for the different
styles of sonnets.

In service to the dream
