Reverse English Sonnet

Type:  

Structure, Metrical Requirement, Rhyme Scheme Requirement, Simple, Pivot Requirement

 
Description: 

Rupert Brooke invented it in his sonnet “Sonnet Reversed.” It is sometimes erroneously attributed to Wilfred Owen with a poem title that is the starting words of Brooke’s sonnet, but we have been unable to confirm that said sonnet by Owen even exists. The rhyme scheme, etc. is simply reversed. It is a comic form.
