Chain Poem/Name Poem 1: MAGNOLIA


Meandering on every land and each sea,
Around the wide world I went hoping
Glory of love I would come upon;
None I found ‘til no more place to go,
On wearied legs I retraced my trail;
Lying morose in bed, felled by ennui,
I saw at last sans doubt’s iota
All I sought lies deep in your bosom.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

) 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. And 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.)

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
