The next "Very Slight Worry" gathering is a sonnet recitation festival. Everyone is welcome. The goal is to commit sonnets to memory and then bask in them together via recitation.

If you intended to memorize something for this, now or soon might be a good time to start. Any sonnet from any time will do.
