(This is a repost from the Corner Pub.)


Poetry's a marvelous Craft,
With a language all it's own,
And rules so many and varied,
It is doubtful all could be known!
The Iambic Pentameter,
Commonly used in English verse,
Is a five-foot metrical line,
Used in sonnets, oft then rehearsed.

Alliteration strictly speaking,
Is a device used for the Sound,
Used aptly with repetition,
The poems verbiage will astound!

Imagery prod the imagination,
To look at things in a new light,
The representation of one thing,
By another, oft brings delight!

And with Onomatopoeia,
We might hear a rum-pum-pum-pum,
With these rich descriptive sounds,
We readily picture a drum.

Writing a successful poem,
S'like weaving a fine Tapestry,
The words blend in rhyme and tempo,
Then lay proud for the world to see.

I'm learning as I go forward,
With every poem that I draft,
I strive for constant improvement,
As I use the tools of "the Craft".





 Poetry is the expression of thoughts which awake the higher and nobler emotions, or their opposites, with words arranged to some accepted convention.........or maybe not! Dennis :^)

Craft? It's more like an addiction..though I did get into decoupage pretty heavily once. My fanily had to have me deprogrammed!
