Little Girl And Her Doll(Blank verse)


Blank verse is
narrative poetry, tells a story. It can also be used in dramatic poetry to develop a personality or to characterize, both are usually written in the 3rd person. Occasionally it is adapted to lyrical works such as the sonnet but its better suited to long verse.
accentual syllabic verse, primarily iambic pentameter.
composed in strophic (lines grouped in thought units much like paragraphs in prose) rather than stanzaic (lines grouped in uniform set numbers) form, there is no set poem length.
unrhymed.
composed with the use of caesura and enjambment which are critical to the success of of the form. An occasional period or comma at the end of a line is OK but it is considered better technique to begin and end a sentence within the line as long as the lines are 5 metric feet and the strophe is endstopped
Little Girl And Her Doll

Little girl was playing with her doll while
Granny was watching her from behind and
Suddenly when little girl felt some one
At her back she turned and saw her granny
Ready with questions to throw and granny
Did ask 'what were you playing with your doll? '
And little girl said 'teaching her English'
Which made granny curious to attend
And ask 'if c-a-t is cat what is
M-a-t, r-a-t? , is it that kind

Yeah, also if r-o-s-e is rose
What is d-o-s-e, p-o-s-e?
And that made granny grin and smile and ask
'Now you tell me what is b-o, c-o'
And little girl answered right straight with O
As bo and co and continued with all
Letters when suddenly granny stopped and
Asked ' what is d-o, t-o? for which
Little girl thought for a while and quickly
Replied ' I'll ask my doll that too granny'

Poem of the Day

poet John Gay

Friendship, as love, is but a name,
Save in a concentrated flame;
And thus, in friendships, who depend
On more than one, find not one friend.

A hare who, in a civil way,
