You put a baby in a crib with an apple and a rabbit. If it eats the rabbit and plays with the apple, I'll buy you a new car.
—Harvey Diamond
sonnet
A 14-line lyric poem that often explores and resolves a focused theme. Italian (or Petrarchan) sonnets are divided into two quatrains and a six-line "sestet"; English (or Shakespearean) sonnets are composed of three quatrains and a final couplet. English sonnets are written generally in iambic pentameter.
