I wrote this for AP English, it's about Josh Groban and music:

Groban

A voice of silver ringing from the depths
Of feeling, wrought to bear the soul through scales
of chords and song. Emotions boil, life pales,
time slows–the crowd hangs on all of his breaths,
a ghostly hand of music stop their deaths
from lack of notes his voice entwines. Fresh tales
of love encompassed by his tone, it rails
against the norm, it drains emotive debts.
Yet tone alone does not entail desire,
the words evoke the feeling of delight,
of lyrics form with lines like, “Don’t give up”*
or, “Tears of hope run down my skin,”** conspire
to twist, enmesh the fans in feelings bright,
their hopes run high, he cries, “You raise me up.”***

* From the song “You are Loved (Don’t Give Up)”
** From the song “Remember When It Rained”
*** From the song “You Raise Me UP”


--------------------
DRAGON BLESSING

May dragons bring you wealth
and guard your treasures
May they banish darkness and enlighten you
May female dragons grant you inner power
May the Dragon Queen
neutralize your enemies
May Dragon Spirits
give you power over Elementals
May weather dragons
bring rain at your request
May Ti'amat effect the changes you command
May Ishtar grant you Dragon Power
May Ishtar grant you Dragon Power

Just wanted to add that this is a Petrarchan Sonnet. It rhymes ABBAABBACDECDE and 8 lines about one topic with a turn at the 9th line and then the last 6 lines. It is iambic pentameter or unstressed stressed with 10 syllables.
