Duo Rhyme~Fun Time


This time I decided to plunge into something different..

I usually do write poems…and generally I have seen that at times it just takes me like seconds to compose one.. with simple words and simple rhyme-scheme..

My typical rhyme scheme follows either the abab or abcb or aabb format..

So this Thursday as I was sitting vela at my office..

Oh yes the whole of my Chennai/banglore/Hyderabad offices were shut for Pongal/Makar Sankranthi.. while my darling Mumbai Branch decided to bore me to death…

So then.. me being me embarked on a journey to spice up and spruce my blog

(YO.! Me creative me..)

This is what I came across and below is my rendition on the same 😉

Duo-rhyme

The Duo-rhyme, a poetic form created by Mary L. Ports, is a 10 or 12-line poem, with the first two

and last two lines having the same rhyme scheme, and the center of the poem (lines #3 through #8 or #10)

having their own separate monorhyme scheme.

Meter: 8 beats per line, written in iambic tetrameter (4 linear feet of iambic)

Rhyme Scheme: 10-line: a,a,b,b,b,b,b,b,a,a and 12-line: a,a,b,b,b,b,b,b,b,b,a,a

So here’s my try at the same  

~~~~~

Looking at the moon

Makes me swoon

Wish he was here

With me so near

On a night so clear

Oh! Drops a silent tear

Losing him I fear

Oh cmon don’t jeer

I haven’t seen him in a year

And yet my love for him is sincere

Aah..!! The distance makes me croon

Oh! My Darling, do come soon

~~~~~~

Yaaayyyy…!!! That’s a swell attempt…!!!

Especially when you just start one line and end up seeing that ev erything else seems to just fall into place.. like pieces in a jigsaw puzzle

And ALL UNDER 5MINS…

Yepppppiiiieee… this poem was composed under 5Mins..

On hindsight im amazed indeed..

I knew I was insane.. but this insane..

Maannn…that’s a shocker to me itself  😯

So temme how you found this..

Yippppee… me is loving it 😀

So guys pull up your rhyming socks and get poetic cmon this aint that tough 😀

Meanwhile I get cracking at more greener pastures..errr… poetic pastures 😉

So here’s me signing off from Megzone…!!!

Keep Smiling..!! Keep Rocking..!! Keep Blogging..!!

Cheerios…!!!
