How Little Girl Hassles(Free Verse) -1

In free verse, the old 'rules' are broken, the line itself becomes the only rule.The verse is strophic, not contained in uniform stanzas. It must breath, think and sound like the poet. The rhythm keeps time with the poet's own heart beat. To ignore its form is irresponsible. It may be more difficult to create a line of free verse than metered verse, the length, word choice and placement become an extension of the poet even more without the 'rule' of predetermined patterns. With free verse it is up to the poet to create his/her own rules.


How Little Girl Hassles

Early in the morning
That she can not get up
She irks her mother
Waking up very late
And there upon
Her mother starts shouting

But
Little girl is not worried
She keeps up her slow pace
Loitering here to there, there to here
Between the rooms

And
Her mother keeps shouting
To brush, to bathe, to eat
To get to school on time
All in a hurry-burry medley

Just
A cup of milk with three biscuits
She needs a story reader
Easily she drags the time
Sip-pause-sip-pause
Pausing more for a long while

And
No wonder the mother
Sandwiched between
Tiffin making and readying
Her Little girl is high pitched
Screaming hysterical...

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
