Me avin' a go at poetry


New Member
Poetry is not for me,
Amongst the forms considered literary,
I'm not a-verse to lines of rhyme,
Or making odes to pass the time.

It's just that I've always liked to glance,
At trees and grass and herbaceous plants.
There's something about stems and leaves,
That other forms just don't achieve.

Don't think me mean,
For causing an anti-rhyming scene,
As I believe there should be a repository,
For flowery rhyme and a-poet tree.

The metre in the third stanza does not work

This thread is a. 3 years old. and b. that may be so, but you could soften the comment a little. Why doesn't it work? c. Try starting with a compliment and then whamming them with what is wrong.
