Day 14 Fourteen Line Poem
June 14, 1578. Fourteen-year-old William Shakespeare wrote his first sonnet.
Actually, I made that up. Shakespeare really was 14 in 1578, and he did write sonnets. But no one knows when he wrote his first sonnet. Today may be the day you write your first sonnet, though.
Write a poem of at least fourteen lines. You may want to try writing a sonnet, but any fourteen line poem will do.
