Heroic Crown of Sonnets


Christ Carrying the Cross

It started as a prayer, “wrote itself” during April, 2018, and by the end of the month–tragically–dedication presented itself.

It feels like a devotional to me. It has helped me, and I hope it will help others as well.

Never despair. Never give up your faith. Never let your soul slumber.

Alleluia, heroic crown of sonnets, for Alfie Evans

P.S. Several people told me they were not sure it’s okay to share the sonnets without my permission. By all means, you have my permission. Please, give credit to the author, and do share the sonnets. Thank you.

  2. Fantastic and soul stirring sonnets. I salute you for your dedication to the form, and to theme of Light and Hope. If you haven’t thought of it already, you can have this self-published as a chapbook. Kudos!
