Chain Poem/Name Poem 3: MICHELLE


My soothing solace from ennui
In moments quite melancholic,
Calming as the sea breeze’s hush
Humming enchanting lovely tune,
Easing pains from my wearied soul
Like wind quieting wild squall,
Livening my spirit with love
Enough to make me face dire doom.

(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.)

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,
