Write a Poem for the Person Above You
« on: May 26, 2019, 06:56:28 PM »
Exactly what it says on the tin. The easiest examples are haiku and limericks.

Haiku have five syllables in the first line, seven in the second, and five in the last. They don't need to rhyme.

Example,

Our passionate love,
A sweet dream though it may be,
Anon, I forget.

A limerick is more about beats and rhymes than syllables.

Example,

I made love with a fellow named Bob._ 3 beats, rhyme A
I got pregnant, then he lost his job. ___3 beats, A
But still a fine gent, ________________2 beats, B
A'shoppin' he went, _______________2 beats, B
When I craved corn on the cob. ______3 beats, A

You can do something for free form, of course, or you can go hard mode and write a sonnet. Good luck with iambic pentameter. lol

In which Buttercup writes a limerick for herself.

Sweet Buttercup, why do you sigh?
It's natural for topics to die.
Of course, I should say,
It's just been a day.
Be patient. You'll get a reply.

O Buttercup
My senses shatter
Sighs replace chatter
When you fill me with your scent
Until nothing else matters

Zaphod enraptures
With pretty words he captures
Imagination

(sorry if this haiku is lame and silly  ;D)

Buttercup baby,
Oh why do you build me up
Just to let me down

I'm glad that you chose to take part,
So I'll let you know from the start,
That it'll be grand,
I'll build you up and,
Let you down, not break your heart.

(Your haiku is wonderful and I love it. I haven't thought of that song in ages.)

Buttercup dances like no other
You don't believe me? Ask her mother!
When she gets lost in ballet
She traps me in her fillet
You can't be like her, don't even bother!

(There was another thread like this one but it kinda died, I am happy you made a brand new!)

Strega of gossamer dreams,
Not a one awesomer seems.
She sits on the dock
To watch on the loch
As her watery duplicate gleams.

(Happy to be of service!)

Buttercup, that saucy wrench,
She doesn't even speak French,
And needless to say,
Not performing ballet,
No, she's sitting it out on the bench.

Her shoes and
Her hair are
Glistening satin

That old black magic
That is what the Strega is
I am enchanted.

When it rains, she doesn't mind.
On wet days, she likes to unwind.
But what she wants in a storm,
As her man keeps her warm,
Is a wyrm of another kind.

Your pink satin ribbons
A dream around your little ankles
They flow in my mind

Along the dusk dock
Lonely feet trifling the lake
Strega sits, and dreams

Fifty years around,
still gaming and still writing,
a true tale-spinner.

There was this lady named Rabbit.
Who had a strange, yet, unusual habit.
She goes bibbity bop
On and on she will hop.
You must agree? it's a rather strange habit.

Phantomhive and his tea
And all his never ending pleasantry
Really blows my mind
Makes me think of him all the time
He is the best butler, undoubtedly!
