Creating song in verse
Creating song in verse
This poet's happiness
This poet's happiness
This happiness in verse
Creating poet's song;

Of words composed in play
Of words composed in play
An artful parody
An artful parody
In parody composed
An artful play of words.

Pride wrought of artist's skill
Pride wrought of artist's skill
Regrets an empty well
Regrets an empty well
An empty pride well wrought
Regrets of artist's skill;

Composed in poet's words,
An artful song of play;
Creating happiness.
An artist's pride regrets
This parody of skill
Well wrought in empty verse!

Pardon me for sounding grouchy, but I hope this darn thing gives everyone else as much heartburn as it gave me! I've never written anything so awkward in my entire life!

But I DID enjoy the challenge ... and hope never to relive it!

I have to agree - These aren't nearly as much fun as other formats - and I think that "awkward" is a good modifier..... but - the good news is - You succeeded...

You did very well by it...maybe I should tackle one some time

Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for awhile and leave footprints in our heart and we are never ever the same.

Thank you all for leaving footprints!!

I think this beats our efforts in the Poetry Workshop.  Yep, I do.
