(the choice is yours) A Seasoned Octet
"See joy or Rain" by Dolly'sPoems
It matters not how much you gift
some never shift their gloomy view;
renew their thoughts with doubtful drift,
and with their chatter paint life blue.

And when a simple flower blooms
their eye sees doom, rain is in play;
they say that sadness can consume
and then again they spoil your day.

A pessimistic attitude
will soon elude the best of life
and strife will follow and include
a solemn testament that's rife.


Author Notes
I have spent years trying to cheer someone, and I gave up in the end.

A Seasoned Octet

Introducing a new form of eight syllables per four lined stanza, written in iambic tetrameter. The rhyming complex is indicated below and can be made up of multiple stanzas. I hope you enjoy it, although it is very challenging to write.
