Chain Poem 5 - Zenaida


ZENAIDA

Zestful demeanor ever lights her pretty face,
Evokes my respect with graceful and mirthful mien,
Never dampens my day with foolish idea
Always lifts my spirit out of deep ennui,
Inspires me through problems that seem so very hard,
Directs my path towards my desired Nirvana,
All these she does with sincere love and much pizzazz.

(A chain poem is like any ordinary poem. However, every line after the first starts with the last letter of the last word of the line it follows. The last letter of the last word of the last line ends with the first letter of the first word of the first line. There is, thus, no rhyme scheme. On the other hand, a name poem is actually an acrostic.)

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
