Sonnet \Son"net\, n. [F., fr. It. sonetto, fr. suono a sound, a
song, fr. L. sonus a sound. See Sound noise.]
1. A short poem, -- usually amatory. [Obs.] --Shak.
He had a wonderful desire to chant a sonnet or hymn
unto Apollo Pythius. --Holland.
2. A poem of fourteen lines, -- two stanzas, called the
octave, being of four verses each, and two stanzas, called
the sestet, of three verses each, the rhymes being
adjusted by a particular rule.
Note: In the proper sonnet each line has five accents, and
the octave has but two rhymes, the second, third,
sixth, and seventh lines being of one rhyme, and the
first, fourth, fifth, and eighth being of another. In
the sestet there are sometimes two and sometimes three
rhymes; but in some way its two stazas rhyme together.
Often the three lines of the first stanza rhyme
severally with the three lines of the second. In
Shakespeare's sonnets, the first twelve lines are
rhymed alternately, and the last two rhyme together.
