Good morning, Mrs. Lizard, how are you?
It's great to see you take the morning air.
Hello, Grasshopper, fine to see you too.
Lizard ate Grasshopper, how could she dare?
Then after breakfast she ran off, adieu.
I was trying something different today. I wanted to work in a longer line because I tend to prefer very short lines. These lines are 10 syllables long. But the meter is different in each line which is why I don't think the poem is successful, even though I stayed with the rhyming pattern I set up for myself.
Notice how the comas throw off the meter. I'm going to have to try this poem again--removing the constraints I artificially put on this poem and concentrate on meter and see what I come up with. I'm off to play with this poem some more. I hope you have fun writing your own poem today.
I posted this poem failure so that you could see that not all first attempts are successful.
