Hello Poetry Lovers
Here I am, back on food. I can’t leave it alone!
I just wanted to feature some more fascinating short forms I learnt in Sharron Green’s class recently.
As you can see, I have written a monorhyme – each line with 8 syllables, and the last word has to rhyme. I had fun with this one;
Smoked salmon is good for the soul
Not fast food that just fills a hole
But when I eat a sushi roll
I dream of cake that makes me whole
Healthy salads, they are my goal
After I’ve eaten this egg roll
Wasn’t that fun? The Etheree that follows was even better. 10 syllables, then 9, then 8, etc and it can go either way. I built it up rather than diminished it. Do read on;
You can’t have
My brand new phone
And who would you call?
No, not that awful girl
You must never play with her
She flirts and goes out with boys
wait until you are a grown woman
meanwhile I will tell her to go to Hell
Aren’t these forms fun, and interesting?!
I will have some more for you soon, PL’s. Meanwhile we will return shortly with even more food!!
Thank you to Sharron for her inspiration, and thank you for tuning in, Poetry Lovers
