Less our doubts will be,
Stowed away with trouble.
Some sweet peace to sleep with.
In this our first night to be,
Holding love for life.
Time under this moon;
Light on our twining bodies, so good.
Will this first night never to end!
dVerse ~ Poets Pub | Compound me a Sleepy Quadrille night!
I pull a double dVerse duty swinging two prompts in one write:
dVerse ~ Poets Pub | Quadrille night! Sleepy times.
First Sarah (sarahsouthwest) invited us to write a sleepy little quadrille. A quadrille, is simply a poem of 44 words, excluding the title. It can be in any form, rhymed or unrhymed, metered, or unmetered. You MUST use the word “sleep” or some form of the word in your poem.
dVerse ~ Poets Pub | Poetics: Compound me!
Next Lillian insists we regale her a poem using at least one compound word from a list provided.
The catch being to split the word over.
Achieving its two components; yet keep it together. (<– see what I did there)
Naturally, does Muse just use one compound word in a poem? Noooooo…. Let’s make every confounded end/start line be compounded – yeah! Oh!, and still make a quadrille – right!
