TiffanyDawn Ragsdale: A form for Febuary, the month of love. So i was looking for something simple yet sweet form that isnt overwhelming to write an entry for the love poem contest and i think i found a keeper.
For all the lovebirds out there here is the form for the Swannet!
The rhyme scheme is .
The meter is not specified but is usualy tetrameter (Envelope) or pentameter (Italan).
TiffanyDawn Ragsdale: The rondeaus form
it is composed of fifteen lines,
eight to ten syllables each, divided
stanzaically into a
quintet, 5 lines
a quatrain, 4 lines
a sestet 6 lines
The rentrement consists of
the first few words or the entire
first line of the first stanza, and
it recurs as the last line of both
the second and third stanzas.
Two rhymes guide the music of
the rondeau, whose rhyme scheme
is as follows (R representing the refrain):
aabba aabR aabbaR
I still haven't recovered from what the haiku did to me. :-p
LOL! Thanks for the poetic edification. :) -
TiffanyDawn Ragsdale: The wind is softly flowing
The past, presant, or future
girlish ghosts of me are now one.
Don't frantically Fret over me
be easy and worry free.
I am always cautiously carousing around
Dreaming, so please remember
To let me spend some time in
Sweet September !
At 33 i died my hair white so
i wont see it lose its color when
its robbed by rogue time.
As I get older and life is tiring
My heart is truly trying
to be in love with life.
TiffanyDawn Ragsdale: Beyond this moment of words time marches on.
In the stillness of silent questioning cautious ears
catch leaves warily whispering in a waning serenade.
Summer dawdled in a daydream,
while the world wailed at the wicked
and humanity wept twisted tears
