Shakespeare!

So in my language arts class were working on Shakespeare. My teacher wants us to write a Shakespearean Sonnet on something we love.I decided something to do with snowboarding.
Thing is i suck with Shakespeare and poetry so i wanted some feedback.

things that it has to have
14 lines(3 quatrains 1 couplet)
Rhyme Scheme (abab cdcd efef gg)/last words have to rhyme in that scheme/

so any suggestions you have would help thanks in advance.

From this day to the ending of the season,
But we in it shall always remember-
We few, we happy few, we band of boarders;
for he today that shreds the gnar with me
shall be my brother; be he ne'er such a douche,
this day shall mellow his condition;
and dudes everywhere in the flats
shall think themselves accursed they were not here,
and hold their 'nads cheap while any speaks
that hit the jumps with us in the park.


From the St Crispin's day speech
with apologies to the ghost o'Will.

Probably doesn't meet your criteria but it was fun.


Illegitimi non carborundum.

Hahahaha! That is exactly what Shakespeare would have wrote if he shredded the gnar. Good job Donutz!

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!
