Sonnet of Eastern Wonderland
« on: June 14, 2010, 03:24:35 pm »
Well, as I mentioned in the 'You know you're addicted to Touhou when..' thread that I made a sonnet about Reimu for English class and got rewarded with a cake for it. Since mentioning this automatically makes me obliged to post it here I figured we should make a poetry thread for the lovely maidens of Touhou Project. Just write a sonnet or other form of poetry about one or more beauty or aspect of Gensokyo and post it here! I'm sure all of you can do way better than me, so give it a try!
As an example for future entries I will now post the aforementioned sonnet here. I hope you guys like it. It might not be that spectacular for people with English as native language...

Never the less, here comes, my sonnet about the Heavenly Maiden of Paradise, Reimu!
(Note: the sonnet contains only a very cryptic description of Reimu. Don't expect a clear and direct depiction of Reimu. I also had to make sure it rhymed and sounded cool, so it isn't entirely faithful to the games. I now notice I may have let the youkai sound a bit too evil :ohdear:)

Alone you live in the home of deities
Existing in a land of illusions
A pure maiden who the holy spirit fancies
Yet you are surrounded by devils and their mad disillusions

You watch over a nature-filled paradise
Its beauty only surpassed by your fair visage
Yet the gods play with you fate via a pair of dice
Sending demons to make this dream a devilish mirage

Your eyes shine with divine power
You use your gifted might to vanquish devil and spirit alike
Your skill and ability makes every fiend cower
But every time a new scourge rises to corrupt your psych

Oh fair maiden of dreams and light
Allow me to wisk you away from this land of blight

Gah, it isn't that good. :ohdear: Now do us all a favor and write up something of true quality.

Fighting to protect those not of your own,
To be betrayed by those who would discriminate.
Oh, fate has cruelly sown,
What lies at the end of the road is petty hate.

But wait! Those whose lives you have changed,
The demons who you selflessly redeemed,
Though it may be a bit strange,
They are coming for you, it seems.

Patience, your greatest virtue,
And violence, a thing of the past,
Your determination shall always strike true,
Forging the bonds of harmony, forever they may last.

Byakuren obviously. Hopefully I didn't screw up. This was done impromptu in 10 mins  :V

I am a dreamer. I wander through countless dreams. If I will, I can even walk the roads of the land of illusion. And yet, there is a single vision that even I cannot grasp. - Maribel Han

Wonderful! Amazing! A lot better than my attempt IMHO! It really fits and it follows Byakuren's back-story accurately. The rhyming and lines are also top notch!

Standing firm at the gate, keeping out the vile,
My fists are my unstoppable tools
Hyperactive fighting style,
With moves so slick they'll make you drool.

Now here I stand declaring,
My body and soul the embodiment of the law,
My name is Hong Meiling,
Now hear me ROAR!

Awwww, thanks Tear. :* I wasn't sure if I could keep up with the writing skills of others...

And your latest one is again very nice, Vicks. :D I've never played God Hand though, so I can't see the reference...

Crazy ~ Crazy ~ Oh so Crazy~
Or so they thought
Her mind is just a big mazey
when they found out they said "wat"

She is really quite sweet
even though she is stronger then a ghoul
careful, or you may be what she will eat
you damn fool

She has the sword of the flaming end
when she is oh so cute
she is just around the bend
her true self will leave you mute~

Flandre :3 She's not crazy, just very random :V
