Why Use Our Sonnet Generator

Very few online sonnet generators allow you to enter your own words for use in the poem. This is because sonnets use a very rigid structure, making it hard for web developers to incorporate the infinite possibilities that users might input. Although random poetry made up of existing lines usually generates perfect iambic pentameter, the possibilities are fairly limited. Our sonnet generator lets you input your own words and, if we can't make them work in the sonnet format, we access the dictionary to find synonyms that do fit. We have also taken the daring step of letting a computer choose some of the rhymes - this often generates surprising results.
