~::~ [A-Z Challenge] ~ Lento ~::~

Day – 12, L = Lento

A Lento consists of two quatrains with a fixed rhyme scheme of abcb, defe as the second and forth lines of each stanza must rhyme. To take it a step further, but not required, try rhyming the first and third lines as well as the second and forth lines of each stanza in this rhyming pattern: abab, cdcd. The fun part of this poem is thrown in here as all the FIRST words of each verse should rhyme.


~::~ Little Butterfly ~::~


Little fairy wings on little butterfly

Brittle colors swept, on its petite wings

Whittles trails of faint dyes, soaring through the sky

Kittle tiny spores of pollen smeared by strings


Flew tiny butterfly, with wings of various hues

Strew tiny proboscis, spores of unknown blooms

View of aromatic valleys & moors on its cruise

Queue of delicate flowers, brightening up its plumes



I hope you liked it, share your comments, feedback & brickbats.
