~::~ Ballet Dancer ~::~

Yepp.. I am back with a new form of poetry yet again…

A Ottava Rima is a poem written in 8-line octives. Each line is of a 10 or 11 syllable count in

the following rhyme:

one octive poem. abababcc

And here’s my poem on the Ottava Rima form…

~::~ Ballet Dancer ~::~

She danced all night, wooing her audience

Sashaying her skirt, swaying to the tunes

Dim lights created the right ambience

Enthralls everyone, making their hearts swoon

Not one but all, entranced by her performance

Beads of sweat on her brows, she shines like the moon

She’s one of her kind, their ballet danseuse

Revered by all yet untouched, no one’s muse


The painting is done by my friend Shruti Harohalli πŸ˜€ who is slowly flowering into a wonderful artist.. You can see more of her art at – Β http://shrutiharohalli.wordpress.com/ Please do visit her.. she has some wonderful art on display. You can also buy or place orders for her πŸ™‚

I hope you liked the poem and the painting J

  2. Very interesting poem and form! I love playing around with diffrent scans. I seldom look for others, but try to create something that feels new or different to me. I like that there are names for the forms, though! Where did you find the efinitions of those forms, or are they your own?

    Terrific poem. I shall be following you! Thanx.
