Poetry

A little rhyme

I like to rhyme

From time to time

Pen an ode

When I’m bored

Write a sonnet

When there’s a bee in my bonnet

Or sing a ballad

As I eat my salad

Some thoughts are deep

Others, just cheap

And yet I’ll write

Late into the night

Churn those words

No matter how absurd

‘Coz I like to rhyme

From time to time

It’s World Poetry Day today and I thought there’s no better way to say it than in rhyme! Also, in case you missed it, I’m participating in the A to Z Challenge in April and my theme is the A to Z of Poetry. Do join m on this journey.

    I was just reading about meters and rhymes yesterday on the YeahWrite website, and I’m currently hunting for poems which follow this rule. (There are so few that I’ve found, trust me) But your poem follows both, a meter and a rhyme! Yay! ?
    Happy #WorldPoetryDay 🙂

      I think my meter can be off in some poems but lately, I’ve been trying my best to follow that. To be honest, I need to read more about poetry — info about iambic pentameters and stuff goes way over my head! And this after I studied English Lit for two years 😛
