Urceus Exit


Triolet

I INTENDED an Ode,
   And it turn'd to a Sonnet
It began a la mode,
I intended an Ode;
But Rose cross'd the road
   In her latest new bonnet;
I intended an Ode;
   And it turn'd to a Sonnet.

    Its good when its talking about the comparisons between an ode and a sonnet. The rest of the poem doesn't make much sense and the analogies don't coincide. The part about Rose does nothing to add to the poem and in my opinion should be taken out. (Report) Reply

    Fantastic vacillation between Ode and Sonnet. The existing mal-function of life which occasionally getting imbalance with tears and trauma. Excellent intention of exposing the intensity of living. Unique.............Pranab k c 10++ (Report) Reply

And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
