Poets, Pixels, & Prose Logo

    Newer Older

    An original design completely created in Adobe Illutrator, this is the comment and invite icon for my Poets, Pixels, & Prose group. I hope any of my friends who add any type of poetry of prose (either original or quoted) to their photos will join this group

    Poetry at Play

    In my poetic ration
    I like a little alliteration;
    Award it ample admiration.
    And as for astute assonance,
    I am enamored and entranced--
    Enchanted by its sweet romance.

    Ruskin’s pathetic fallacy
    Sounds Shakespearean to me;
    And when the lonesome wind moans
    Over the hard-hearted stones,
    Or chaste stars in their vestal choir
    Sing vespers with pure hearts afire,
    Or if a world-oppressing sun
    Sets his fusion gun to stun
    Then I sit back and watch the fun.
    And I applaud when words escape
    From their restraints
    And break Houdini-like
    Out of their padlocked cage;
    Or if they sing a sweet swan song,
    I am enraptured and amazed;
    And as they take their final bow
    Upon their paper stage,
    I throw red roses at their feet
    Before I turn the page.

    If it knows to never mix it up,
    Sly metaphor cannot be beat
    (Except to death perchance),
    But it must be careful,
    Wise,
    And neat,
    Know when
    To step its measured dance,
    And when to take its seat.

    And as for rhyme . . .
    I like it almost all the time.
