MINUTE POEM

Post  aL1801 on Tue Mar 01, 2011 8:13 am

Below is what is known as a 'minute poem' - this consists three verses of four lines. Each line has a syllable count of:
8 -4-4-4.


MARCH

The Month of March brings in the fall
Precurser to
The winter squall
Cold to chill you

But only in these Southern parts
‘Tis spring up North
When flowers spring forth
To warm the hearts

No matter what the season brings
To each his own
Give voice and sing
To fall or spring

Kudos good Sir.
Not only is this a superb poem but it has set the bar to a poetry competition. I shall go wake the Shiek. Very Happy

Thank you, Mr Rock, it were a lot o' fun - especially doing a parody (this wasn't) to upset the purists.

Summers Night

Post  Hotrock on Tue Mar 08, 2011 6:44 am

Below is what is known as a 'minute poem' - this consists three verses of four lines. Each line has a syllable count of:
8 -4-4-4.


Forestall the end of summers night
Savour twilight
Warm evening
Soft gentle breeze

Allow time to linger longer
Food for the soul
Essential goal
Relaxation

Content Spirit rising skyward
Gently floating
No more frowning
This summers night

I've always been fascinated by poetry meter and form. I'm just not very adept at it. Poems are my forte although I wish they were. You two have a poet's heart.

If I were left to be alone
What would I do
Who would I hold
Who would hold me

Would morning mean the same to me
Would nights seem long
Would birds still sing
Would I hear them

If I were left to be alone
I'd be okay
I'd sing my dreams
And hold the song.

How you can write such moving poetry is beyond me.
I'm more of a doggerel person - brought up on Aussie bush poetry and yarns.

If you follow these posts and others on this site you will see that Hotrock has the soul - me, I had to try to be funny.

That was a beautiful poem, capturing the rhyme and meter perfectly.

Please have a look at www.fanstory.com. Especially the poetry dance segment.

If you were left to be alone
You just call me
Do nothing else
I'd be right there.

Your mornings happily you'll greet
Lonely nights, nay
If you just reach
Right out to me.

If that's your wish alone to be alone
I'd honor that
You're not alone
I'm here for you.
