Perfect Rhymes


If i have to spend my time,
I'll stay away from crime,
To catch a perfect rhyme

Using poetic words i refined,
In each verse, they are confined
With my intention well defined
And no verbiage assigned
I give a piece of my mind
And pass wisdom to man kind

If a rhyme could hide in jail
I'll pay for the bail
If it runs through a vale
I'll follow the trail
If it shrinks into a quail
I'll turn into a gale
If it stretches into a whale
I'll catch it by the tail
And haul while i sail

If i catch perfect rhymes on cloud nine
I'll put each in a line
If the lines could reflect all i opine
And the poetic sound is still divine
I'll sail away from whine
To wine and dine
For my poem has a design
And radiates like sunshine

What will you give for a rhyme?
A wave for shunning crime
A shake for my time
A hug for the verses that sound so sublime
And a medal for the message i convey without a dime.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
