Review of Gapped Sonnet by Suzanne Gardinier

Gapped Sonnet by Suzanne Gardinier was offered by Poets.org's Poem-A-Day on March 4, 2013.  The first two stanzas of 4 lines each have a rhyme scheme, but the last stanza of 6 lines does not, thus creating the "gap."  The poet reveals in her notes that she deliberately left out any punctuation to create the feeling of "a translation from some other language I almost understand."  She creates a mystical, etherial mood and evokes some haunting images.
