The Wrapped Refrain, created by Jan Turner, consists of 2 or more stanzas of 6 lines each;
Meter: 8,8,8,8,12,12 and Rhyme Scheme: a,a,b,b,c,c.
Refrain rule: In each stanza the first 4 syllables (or 4 single-syllable words) in the first line must be
the last 4 syllables (or 4 single-syllable words) at the end of the last line. This is what wraps each
stanza with a repeated refrain ...thus, the Wrapped Refrain.
Create For Me a Metaphor
Create for me a lovely poem,
and let it be a brook, to roam
throughout a field of daffodils,
then wander up and down small hills.
And make it move as if it were a melodyÖ.
Delight me with this poem that you create for me.
A metaphor or two will do,
and paint with colors that imbue
this lovely poem with fantasy.
I love when you enrapture me!
Create for me a world Iím eager to explore;
A taste of candy, scent of rose; a metaphor!
