Some Were Meant to Rhyme


I attempt to write prose,
But it turns to rhyme.
Why? God only knows;
But it happens all the time.

In following the lead,
My pen glides on.
And soon there's a verse
That chimes like a song.

Such patterns seem to be
Ordained in space time,
Which makes me to believe,
Some poems were meant to rhyme.

    Amen to that. It happens to me, all the time. You rhymed it so well. If Shakespeare liked rhyme,
    that is good enough for me. (Report) Reply

    A LOVING AND A CARING HEART, EXPRESSES BEST THROUGH SONGS!
    THAT IS WHY YOUR PROSE ALSO RHYME, & THERE IS NOTHING WRONG!
    10!

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