Now, I know I've carried on and on to you all about how my little monkey is the cleverest and sweetest little monkey ever, but today, I bring you proof, because, for homework, he wrote this sonnet. I helped him punctuate, and use the Rhyming Dictionary, but other than that, it's the product of his own pure brain:
As I behold the sky as a great dome
It seems my feet leave the ground, I seem to fly
through billions of stars that light this earth, my home.
Then, I look down at the sea, so like a mirror of the sky,
how similar are its depths, and yet so different.
As many silver fish as there are stars in sight,
fixed in the vault of heaven, the firmament;
but the fish, their opposite, as fast as little rays of light.
Now I seem to float to earth again
and come to land soft upon a grassy hill,
The night slips away, as the day's power gains, and
Night seeps from the sky, when the sun asserts his will.
With the sun and stars my dreaming goes
And with the sun, new life into me flows.
Right, people? Pretty freaking awesome. Needless to say, I am quite proud, really.
