"People don't write sonnets about being compatible." --Blair Waldorf

A Sonnet about Compatibility

"No sonnets praise compatibility":
'Tis only love that strikes like flood or fire
That moves the poet's pen to sonnetry,
In celebration of sheer dumb desire?
Yet sadness is what sudden passion brings,
When lovers learn, through many a heart-to-heart,
They disagree on fundamental things;
And hearts grow not together, but apart.

But let two people first see eye to eye
About the soul, and how an earthly nation
Should be arranged, we oft see, bye and bye,
A lasting love grow on this firm foundation.

Compatibility unfit for song?
This sonnet serves to prove the thesis wrong!

A sonnet of compatibility should make the poet proud for it makes me want to dance and sway when I hear it read out loud. :)
