Chain Poem 5 - Zenaida


ZENAIDA

Zestful demeanor ever lights her pretty face,
Evokes my respect with graceful and mirthful mien,
Never dampens my day with foolish idea
Always lifts my spirit out of deep ennui,
Inspires me through problems that seem so very hard,
Directs my path towards my desired Nirvana,
All these she does with sincere love and much pizzazz.

(A chain poem is like any ordinary poem. However, every line after the first starts with the last letter of the last word of the line it follows. The last letter of the last word of the last line ends with the first letter of the first word of the first line. There is, thus, no rhyme scheme. On the other hand, a name poem is actually an acrostic.)

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
