To My Poetry Teacher

I know this might not be contemporary,
And as you said: perhaps I'm out of time,
But sonnet form is tricky poetry,
It's more than anything with fourteen lines.
It must have fouteen lines, I do concur,
But with ten syllables on each, Michael -
It's called iambic pentameter.
And is a strict rhyme scheme not integral?
I believe there's two structures one might choose,
Italian form: octave and sestet
Or the English type (currently in use)
Which comprises twelve lines and a couplet.
Put the filthy Modernism away,
Proper sonnets have rules they must obey.
