Im bad at writing poetry
This I can attest
I have no idea how to form a verse
Or know what a stanza is

Someone told me once
Rhyming is the way
But if you have a word like purple
Nothing rhymes with that

To wrack my brain in pondering
How to write the best
I need to open a thasaurus
Will I even past this test?

Poetry is not my forte
English was my worst
I do remeber some things tho
Like refrain, trochee and verse

I guess I have figured out the verse part
That was simple enough
But other things like foot or quatrain
I have no idea as I was out sick that day

So here I am trying my hand
At something I fear will be bad
I wrote this in less than ten minutes
For a bad poetry contest my work place had.

I, too, think you did quite well, my friend . . . you definitely rhyme much better than I, since I can't rhyme anything at all!

by the way ... "thasaurus" should be "thesaurus" I believe.

Rhyme
If you write a poem
The words you have to find
You had best be knowing
An orange has a rind
Plums are nice when tender
I prefer them purple
Then you may remember
Purple rhymes with Turtle

Best wishes

You are a poet after my own heart writing about not being able to write and producing a delightful poem. I sense you may be full of whimsy, in which case I can't wait to read what you have next in mind. You were a great read! ~L
