Some Poets


Some poets pen Horatian odes,
While others write in epic modes.
Some love the rousing roundelay
(Though most consider it passé) .
Some like the tightly-packed haiku,
And villanelles still please a few.
Some think the sonnet form sublime.
But me, I just want shit to rhyme.

    Me too Brigid! I've read some brilliant non-rhyming poems/bits of philosophy (like Creed by Steve Turner) that I just HAD to render as rhyming poetry.

    *giggles* Good one, Bridgid! Though I'd be inclined to argue your closing statement... clearly, you concern yourself with rhythm and flow and well!

    Fun read... thanks for the laugh that last line prompted! :)

Poem of the Day

poet Richard Lovelace

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.

True, a new mistress now I chase,
