My First Sonnet

Love is like the wing of a bird That is smooth in every way and has the scent of the beauty of early May where at the park all that is seen must be heard that is swiftly flowing into one's heart which has increased to a fast thump you will never feel like your in a slump but you will feel like someone just told you that you were smart love is in the air and it is moving so swift throughout all of this earth there is nothing that can make a rift because love is so very fair possibly even as sweet as birth. ______________________________________________________________________ this is the very first sonnet I ever written. I am planning on doing a term poem ( not a paper ) over this sonnet and I wanted to know what could be improved, what to keep. It is due in like three weeks so the better i get responses the better it will be. this is written in Italian sonnet form if I remember correctly.

I'd also put more caesuras in this. By doing that, it will make more sense. Italian sonents had more puncatation than your's does right now. Sorry, I forgot to put this in my last post.

It's not in iambic pentameter. Also, all of the lines have uneven numbers of syallbles. I mean, one line has a lot while one like has a lot less. I think all of the lines are supposed to have the same number. I know that's true for the English on. To fix this, if it's a problem work on your enjabment. You could either break some of the lines up or just write new ones. Good try, though.
