Best Poem of Sidi J. Mahtrow

reiterative Poetry

Reiterative poetry it seems proper to say
Has seen little sunlight in present day.
Yet it represents in all regard,
The beginning as English language broached forward.

Base on Anglo Saxon and Anglo Norman tongues
Reiterative poetry sloughed reluctantly along
Combining words in ways most proper
And in some case, crudely brought to halt, a stopper.

Meanings lost or lesser known,
Words and spellings made to fit the event reported on.
Such it is that Piers Plowman was written
By William Langland and others(?) too, in 1462.

Reiterative simply means...

Ode To A Flea

There you be
Hard to find, or to see.
Happy ‘mongst the wool and flannel
Like so many of Wilkin's cattle.

Having supped on a meal so rich
Provided by the cat or bitch.
Now not even a hip-hop do you give
As you laze in the folded linen rive.

[Hata Bildir]
