My First Sonnet- Gollum

One of my assignments for this past week was write down some things I like to do, but haven’t done in a while.  One of these things was to write poetry.  I haven’t written a poem since I can remember.  Yes, I write a lot of  haiku but I was looking write a different form.   I chose a sonnet.  I may have had to write one in high school for a project in one of my English classes, but I don’t remember.  So, as far as I m concerned, this is my first one.  All I knew about sonnets was they had 14 lines.  I didn’t know much after that so, I looked up how to write one.  Seeing some of the examples, I started thinking of what I was going to write.  Recently, I have seen the LOTR trilogy and that has been on my mind.  I thought I would write a sonnet about Gollum.  Not about the entire trilogy or Frodo and Samwise with Gollum, just Gollum and the ring.  Enjoy!


He found the ring and called her my Precious

And on his birthday, he thought what a gift

As time passed, she had become infectious

Her power, impossible to resist

Killed his kin in order to possess her

He had thoughts of delusions and grandeur

Though she knew it would not last forever

Centuries passed and he wasn’t the same

She left him and went down the mountainside

He fought with himself and all off his shame

Since her departure he searched and he cried

He found her again, when she left the Shire

Precious obsession led him straight to fire


Thank you for reading, I hope you liked it!
