Dear Wind(Rubliw)

The Rubliw is an invented form created by American poet Richard Wilbur
then named and defined by Lewis Turco, author of The Book of Forms among other works.
A short metric poem was sent by Wilbur to Turco
containing a challenge to name the verse form framing the poem.

He also wrote humorous, didactic messages in the same form to fellow poets Dana Gioia and Sam Gwynn.
The Rubliw as created would fall under the category of Light Verse.

The Rubliw is:
a poem in 9 lines.
metric, iambic pattern, L1 monometer, L2 dimeter, L3 trimeter, L4 tetrameter, L5 pentameter, L6 tetrameter, L7 trimeter, L8 dimeter and L9 monometer.
monorhymed.

Tell all so kind
Who talk too much so blind
Of positive thinking in mind
Forgetting that life with negative twined
Sequent like day and night glued bind
That my love too so blind
Gone with you wind
Dead thinned
