Day 9 – NaPoWriMo – Prompt (optional, as always). “Because today is the ninth day of NaPoWriMo, I’d like to challenge you to write a nine-line poem. Although the fourteen-line sonnet is often considered the “baseline” form of verse in English, Sir Edmund Spenser wrote The Faerie Queene using a nine-line form of his own devising, and poetry in other languages (French, most particularly) has always taken advantage of nine-line forms. You can find information of various ways of organizing rhyme schemes, meters, etcetera for nine-line works here. And of course, you can always eschew such conventions entirely, and opt to be a free-verse nine-line poet”.
It was not an occasional dalliance*,
Our love was meant to efflorescence*,
Did not expect you would evanescent*….
This has left me in forbearance*,
Your attitude of insouciance*,
Has made me unpleasant….
Was delighted with your acquaintance,
I knew it was not just a coincidence,
Alas, towards my feelings your ignorant…..
