I know some curse
This perverse form
dVerse I smile.
For all the while
Poets style, words
Beguile, they do!
Sweet Pub ‘tis true
My thanks due, yes
To you in verse.
Because I just know the widget will expire if I try to wait until much later to post this, I do so now. My sincere thanks to all of you who attempted this week’s Form For All the Than Bauk. I have enjoyed these past two days reading all the fun, poignant, dark, wonderful and deliciously interesting takes on the form.
This made me smile big time and there’s clearly a reason you hosted, you are awesome at this form! Thank you for your excellent introduction and patience as we all tried something new. It was a lot of fun (despite the grumbling :)).
Oh all that grumbling beget some wonderful writes. Thanks for participating!
Oh you clever poet, you. Loved this and we all had such a good time with this new form. I think with a bit more work I could make this work in lots of new work. There is a modern feel to it, a subtlety with the rhyme and a great symmetry that can be achieved through it. There were so many good ones that linked!
Hope you got to read the comments. So many had such good things to say to you about the form! Thank you again.
“Oh you clever poet, you” I tries -blush-.
It is a tough form, but one that is so rewarding when done right. Thanks again for letting me host FormForAll.
smiles…thank you for defintiely challenging us and make us think in new ways and stretch those cognitive muscles….this was much fun…thank you much for doing it…smiles..
I had much fun reading all the takes on the form. Thanks Brian.
first, thank you for the introduction to this new form.
second, a perverse form indeed; it is definitely a challenge given the tigh constraints of the verse.
You’re quite welcome. As I said above it is a tough one, but feels so gone when completed.
Very cute use of the form to do some meta-poetry!
Thanx for the exercise and the examples!
I know it is too late, but maybe this file will help others in the future.

A clever and entertaining use of the form. Thanks for.
What a lovely poem.
Mine caused some mind bending but it was a lot of fun..
Thanks Tigerbrite, glad you enjoyed working with it.
And thanks to YOU for this nice poem and for introducing us to the form. I think it would be easier to accomplish next time, and I did enjoy the process.
The first time is always the hardest, especially within the time constraint. I’m glad you had fun.
A challenge not
have you got it
a hot form is.
Hahaha, nice! Thank you.
neat choice of theme here for your post. Your example here easily and effortlessly shows how this form lends itself to all thematic/stylistic choices and how neat and fun are at one with the Than Bauk. Great fun this prompt was.
