A sonatina sonnetina –
a bagatelle of Beethoven’s
to charm the ear of every listener
delighting in its innocence.
Music makes a happy soul,
a treasure worth much more than gold.
Simple music made for pleasure,
harmony and melody
children learn to fill their leisure
happily, as therapy.
Margo Roby gives us instruction in writing a sonnetina, a shrunken sonnet, at Poetic Bloomings
