Nightshade, you have to TAKE THE QUIZ!!!! Hugging you....

take it, so we know for sure you're not what you think you are!  LOL...I'm going to take it again simply because heck...some of the remodeling pressure is off [yes, folks, for those who don't know...two months of pure dust has finally paid off....] and I am thinking that now that I don't have to see through a smoke screen, I may see, uh, more clearly?  Or is that clear, morely?  LOL...I'll let you know if my response changes....

Now, see?  Today, I am

quote:
I am heroic couplets; most precise
And fond of order. Planned and structured. Nice.
I know, of course, just what I want; I know,
As well, what I will do to make it so.
This doesn't mean that I attempt to shun
Excitement, entertainment, pleasure, fun;
But they must keep their place, like all the rest;
They might be good, but ordered life is best.

and outside of that, blank verse!

I'll hit free verse one of these days....

It's kind of like that colorgenics quiz that we all played with a few months ago...depending on your mood, the time of day [the time of month for some of us] etc., it's all subjective....

and right now?  I'm playing in the fact that it's the day that the REMODELING WAS FINISHED!!!!!!

I am a tanka....how fitting.  And if I were not a tanka, then a triolet.  Thanks, IcyFlame for this link, was a much-needed chuckle on a day where laughter was missing.

I am a I am a Terza Rima...  I have no idea what that is (I have some research to do), but I think I would be a haiku or tanka.  That is based simply on the fact that I love that form hehe.

If I find anything about the I am a Terza Rima I will let you all know, since there seems to be many of us

Ok.. It didn't take long..lol.. but here is what I found on this website..
http://www.geocities.com/Area51/Labyrinth/7091/plessons/fmisc.html

A TERZA RIMA takes the tercet rhyming scheme a step further. The `blank' sound ending the second line in the first stanza, becomes the rhyming sound for the second stanza:

The day is done
The night comes in (A-B-A)
Down goes the sun

Wind chimes of tin
Ring soft and clear (B-C-B)
Gently in the wind

Think of me, dear
Looking at stars (C-D-C...etc.)
Wanting you here

..... as I said.. I think I'm more the Haiku type LOL.. but I might give this a try.. I'm looking for some inspiration

I'm the lai, with no sort
Of grave, solemn thought,
And I
Will never be caught
By miseries sought,
Nor sigh;
Where battles are fought
Or arguments brought,
I fly

An interesting quiz...thanx

I think Sunshine is rite. My result changes depending on my mood. I was feeling a bit drowsy since we had a double of science to day and 4 fun i retook the quiz:

I know I should be telling you that I'm
A rubai - but perhaps some other time.
It sounds like work, and anyway, it's late -
Unless I sleep, I'll be too tired to rhyme.

Besides, there's plates to clear and cups to clink,
And when that's done I have to sit and think,
Since then it won't be long before I need
To sleep again and eat again and drink.

    I dunt think I've ever gotten this, or even heard of it 4 that matter. But it's nice to see change once in a while eh?

A cywydd llosgyrnog; I'm one.
"A what?" Well, quite. There'd be no fun
In being understood; I
Thrive upon obliquity.
Don't comprehend or follow me,
For mystery's my ally.

I'm terza rima, and I talk and smile.
Where others lock their rhymes and thoughts away
I let mine out, and chatter all the while.

I'm rarely on my own - a wasted day
Is any day that's spent without a friend,
With nothing much to do or hear or say.

I like to be with people, and depend
On company for being entertained;
Which seems a good solution, in the end.

that is nothing like me!!!! damn thingie is broken either that or I got the answers wrong

Am I the only one who took this test and came out Haiku? Don't even try to tell me you wouldn't drop a sticky bun off a sky scraper!

quote:
I am, of course, none other than blank verse.
I don't know where I'm going, yes, quite right;
And when I get there (if I ever do)
I might not recognise it. So? Your point?
Why should I have a destination set?
I'm relatively happy as I am,
And wouldn't want to be forever aimed
Towards some future path or special goal.
It's not to do with laziness, as such.
It's just that one the whole I'd rather not
Be bothered - so I drift contentedly;
An underrated way of life, I find.


Heh, so true.
Wind, don't feel too bad. I also chose to drop the lil' sticky bun at the innocent people below.  

My first ever poem was a haiku, and here another, from me to you.

Haiku, they tell me;
The lone soul that is chosen
And so I wonder.

           
Only the warrior who can admit mortal weakness will be bolstered by immortal strength

That was pretty cool...

Of grave, solemn thought,
And I
Will never be caught
By miseries sought,
Nor sigh;
Where battles are fought
Or arguments brought,
I fly.

Well, I am supposedly terza rima, though I don't know that they're right... I'm not an extremely talkative person.

Oh, well... it was fun, anyway.

WOW! How did I miss this one????
I must therefore be 'blank' verse?
LOL, Now I'll go read what this is all about, and maybe I'll find out who I really am???
