Little Girl's Grumpy Song(Blues stanza)


The Blues Stanza is:
stanzaic, written in any number of triplets.
accentual verse with 4 to 6 stresses a line, or whatever. The syllable count is 12 or close enough. The meter changes to iambic pentameter when the stanza is used in theBlues Sonnet.
structured. L1 makes a statement, L2 repeats L1 with minor variation, often a beat or two short, and L3responds, with a 'climatic parallel' to the first 2 lines. (a culminating contrast or extension of the statement) In effect you are writing a rhyming coupletposing as a triplet.
rhymed, rhyme scheme aaa, bbb, ccc, ddd.

infused with a theme that comes from complaint or a lament, suffering, struggle, real life experiences. It meets life head on, no nonsense, often with sarcasm and with humor, a wisdom born from pain.

Little Girl's Grumpy Song

Days are running short of holidays, I feel so sad
I feel so sad, short of holidays, I feel so sad
School will reopen next week, I feel so bad

I haven't done my assignment for the holidays
Haven't yet done my assignment for the holidays
I'm so scared to meet the teacher's shouting ways

Mama is pushing and scolding more than she ever
Pushing and scolding, mama is more than she ever
Ho, I don't know what to do, whatsoever

School van will come earlier than what it used to come
Earlier than what it used to come school van will come
Ho, bad, bad things build up to make myself crumb

Days are running short of holidays, I feel so sad
I feel so sad, short of holidays, I feel so sad
School will reopen next week, I feel so bad

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
