World Poetry Day 2017

A little light hearted poem from my book for World Poetry Day.

Poetic Confusion

Tried to write a sonnet,
Was on it like a car bonnet.
But whatever I wrote
Every scribble and note,
Didn’t rhyme at the end
Drove me round the bend!

Tried a haiku,
What to do?
Five, seven, five
Yet still I strive
To work it out,
I have my doubts…

Ballad, ode, elegy,
Epic, lyrical poetry
Epigram, allegory,
Irony, cacophony.
Terza rima, doggerel
Or an ABC poem.

So many poems, what to write?
Is it wrong? Is it right?
I’ll write like me
That’s best, you see
I’ll rhyme and vent
To my hearts content!

    Haha, very clever! I enjoyed reading this poem, and it was quite creative- if only I could do the same with my own poetry. But now that I’ve followed, I guess I can learn and be inspired by your genius ways! Looking forward to seeing more of this splendid writing now that I’ve discovered your blog 🙂

    Love this, Ritu. I can relate completely. I have tried a few different styles and forms but always end up going back to my favourite rhyming verse and metaphorical style poems.
