A sonnet example:
Remember me in sun splash-silvered hills,
In pensive moments lazing by a stream,
In reveries that flow in gilded rills
To foaming seas and to the land of dream.
Remember me, but only with a smile,
And sigh at myosotis in the lea;
Partake of its sweet blossoming a while,
Its blue corolla and its mystery.
Remember me beside a dusty lane
Of twilight-ribboned indigo and gray
Aglint in fading shades of ochre stain
Belonging neither to the night nor day.
Live in these things for all eternity
And I will know that you remember me…
Other example of sonnet:
Remember I said I will love you till
Those words no longer mean the same to you?
So now I leave and ride beyond the hill
Where we laid in the grass and in the dew.
