This sonnet is the second part to another sonnet which began the story of two friends. Please be sure to read the first part of the story so you have the fully story (as short as it may be).
First part of story: http://thebrainblitz.com/2011/07/25/hush-no-more/
The first story came about from a prompt provided by bluebell books poetry site. This second sonnet was going to be a follow up story using a subsequent prompt on the same site (second prompt), however, I got distracted (work, life, blah blah blah) and am now just finishing the sonnet.
Dog and elephant with no map to Yell,
Sought out, in the hot jungle, wise monkey.
Dog barked, “Wise monkey, where is Yell, please tell.”
Banana in hand, monkey spoke softly,
“You must walk down the beach of sandy toes,
And through the coconut trees of great shade.
After this it’s a path which no one knows.
So can I go with you? I’m not afraid.”
Dog and elephant both replied with “Yes.”
Monkey smiled and clapped then swung to the ground.
Past beach and trees they traveled with no rest,
‘Til at last up ahead there came a sound.
Was it music they heard? They could not tell,
Had they finally reached the land of Yell?
