Celebrating Poetry in April: 5. Sophie Jewett’s A Friendship

Today is day 5 of National Poetry Month, where I am sharing a reading of a sonnet each day with my students and my followers.

Today’s sonnet comes from Sophie Jewett (aka Ellen Burroughs), and American poet who lived in New York. Jewett published “A Friendship” in a collection of poems in 1896 titled, The Pilgrim and Other Poems.

Enjoy today’s sonnet!
