The sun comes out today
Sun after so much rain
Comes soft as sweet refrain
Out in its warmth I’ll play
Today I’ll feel no pain
The above is some serious wishing thinking on my part. The sun is shining, but it is a cold day out there today. My face hurts. It’s April, my face should not hurt because of wind and cold. Get your act together Demeter!
National Poetry Writing Month 2016 – Day 5
Today I try out the Emmett form.
The Emmett has 2 rules:
1.The first line of the Emmett is five WORDS long. Each word of the first line becomes the first word of the following lines. So the second word in line one becomes the first word of line two, the third word becomes the first word of line three, etc.
2. To make things a little more complex the Emmett has a rhyme scheme of a,b,b,a,b.
There are no other restrictions on meter or line length.
