a very poignant statement in an excellent sonnet.
You introduce me to a new word in "copse"... and who knows, it may allow me a new bit of word play down the line, since it's pronounced "cops"! I only have one question, since I've never heard the word used. Since it is "a group of small trees" is your "of trees" redundant? I'm not saying that it is; I'm asking and wondering. The definitions that I've read would lead me to believe that, but I've not seen sentences with the word used.
Looking forward to your response, Daniel P.S. I guess you could say the I'm calling out the grammar copse from hiding in the trees?
