One of my poems for NaPoWriMo was an attempt at a sonnet. Although I love the form, I am notoriously bad with meter, so I took that original draft to the Steel Phoenix writers meeting for help. I am actually quite proud that the second stanza appeared to be correct rhythmically!
Here is the updated version, with many thanks to the members of Steel Phoenix:

Notes in the Night

In honor of the anniversary
of fifty years since first Gargarin flew,
musicians celebrate the history
with dulcet notes that float the whole night through.

With joyful duet, memories abound,
the flutes remember heroes Buzz and Neil,
whose first few steps, so brave and so profound,
inspired generations with their zeal.

Aboard the ISS, in LEO,
plays Cady Coleman, mission specialist,
with earth-bound Anderson’s cascading flow
for heroes: astronauts and scientists.

They offer up their music, Bach’s “Bourrée,”
to honor their courageous proud display.

 

*ISS – International Space Station
*LEO – Low Earth Orbit
