Trying on the Tyburn

April 22, 2011 "Writing a poem is discovering." Robert Frost

Once again I refer to http://mainelywrite.blogspot.com/ who shared the idea of a Tyburn. Here is what she shared:

A six line poem consisting of 2, 2, 2, 2, 9, 9 syllables.

The first four lines rhyme and are all descriptive words. The last two lines rhyme and incorporate the first, second, third, and fourth lines as the 5th through 8th syllables.

As I worked on this, I created several rhyme collections, but also as I worked, I began to think I was writing a slogan-like poem, or rap-like, although brief. I found that I kept returning to wanting to share a lesson, and this is what happened with the messing about.


Refuse

abuse!

One bruise,

you lose!

Many will help you refuse abuse.

Hold true to self for one bruise, you lose.
