I like this poem, too, and I agree that it is intriguing and interesting. However, I do not agree when you say that the 9th line is a "metaphor" for the turn that is made in sonnets. Collins is literally talking about the turn in most sonnets, not referring to it in some subtle way in a play on words or an extended metaphor. This whole poem is very literal with seemingly no metaphorical devices.
