My goodness I am in awe. I can, get my brain around a poem, deliver an artistic > cough < free write, a passable rhyming piece, or a limerick. But the poetry I read over at Colleen Cheeseborough’s place, this is so far away from that.
I penned a rhyme to let the true poets know what I think of their work. And below is none of the following. Types of Poetry.
Tanka. … Haiku. … Cleve … limmerick. … lyrical poem. … narrative poem. … ode. … sonnet. … Ballad. … Acrostic. … A double Enneade. … these are just some forms that I can list, though there are many more I have yet to find.
I bow before you all, Composers of life, Love and lament. Winding words with Gold-leaf, painting Architectural prose, Like attempting To cement back on The Sphinxes nose.
How poor my attempt,
too ashamed am I to lay it here,
discarded like Vincent’s ear.
But yet I parry the expected blows
from fencer’s cries and a Sphynxes nose,
for who am I to try?
And so in this place I walk away,
I concede defeat
When you read sophisticated Poetry or verse, do you think … best concede defeat? Answers or comments down below please, I love to chat.
“Where is it? quick me Valentine, quick, quick, got to find it! I know it somewhere.”
Said Doris duck.
She searched high and low in the stream,
for a Valentine to fulfill her dreams.
Shook her tail and waddled far and wide
Until no place was left for it to hide.
What it looked like she didn’t care,
She wanted one from anywhere.
That Valentine she’d heard about,
It made big people flounce and pout.
Alas she was deemed to fail
For Valintines had no tale…
He had no beak for her to peck
And he had the shortest neck.
So to the pond she waddled fast
With her sibblings, home at last.
Munching worms with her Drake,
Fluffing their tails out on the lake.
Was your true love under your nose?
Did you look to hard but failled to see what was next to you?
Or just maybe you couldn’t give a diddly doo dah… let me know leave a word… try and keep it somewhat clean ;)😇
This link takes you to the Valentines party join in it’s for the whole weekend!
