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.
    Here's his version and mine:

    BTW, I also love your new poem 'Offense' I plan to send the link to all my buddies. (Report) Reply

    *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! :)

How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
