Thursday Poets Rally ~ Vers BeauCoup ~ Astrology..!!


Vers Beaucoup

The Vers Beaucoup, a poem for created by Curt Mongold, which is French for “many rhymes”. Each stanza (you can have as many stanzas as desired as long as they follow the rhyming scheme) consists of four lines with a rhyming wordΒ scheme of:

a-a-a-

a-b-b-

b-c-c-

c-d-d

Each rhyme can only use a MAXIMUM of three words. The fourth “a” rhyme carried over to the second line causes enjambment and creates a strong internal rhyming structure. (Definition of enjambment The continuation of a syntactic unit from one line or couplet of a poem to the next with no pause.)

Astrology


The stars, the Mars, destiny afar

The scars of yesterday seem to come my way

All the way. Even the moon, clouds strewn

Like wispy balloon seem to mourn, ominous and forlorn

.

The searcher, deciphering future, to nurture

And raconteur. Symbols and signs, falling in lines

Astrological designs. Depicting life, joy and strife

Or anything rife. Past wreak, prospect mystique..

.

Fortune untold, fate uncontrolled that planets behold

Young or old, only a seer and his peer

With a crystal sphere or tantras and mantras

Even using yantras, predict events or any ascents

.

Sometimes soothsayers play doomsayers and naysayers

Asking us to conduct prayers. To create peace and release

And increase a planet’s interjection or correct a defection

Such complication! Makes astrology seem like mythology

  9. Hi.
    I just thought I would pop in to tell you that the Vers Beaucoup poem you wrote, while very good, does not meet the criteria for the format. In several places you used more than three words in a rhyme, which of course is not vers beaucoup.
    Just wanted to laet you know.
    Have a great day,
    Curt Mongold
