In Time I Wont Rhyme


I'd like to write a poem
And one that doesn't rhyme
But it's harder than I realised
I'm failing all the time

I eradicated couplets
All triplets and quatrains
I modified the rhythm
But had to start again!

And then I thought I'd cracked it
And produced non-rhyming verse
But in the end
The thing I'd penned
Was infinitely worse

    I think this is clever and well-written, Bridgid.
    I'll send a note to your INBOX, some thoughts I have about the whole matter of rhyme and 'vers libre'. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Katharine Lee Bates

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
