Earlier this week I posted a zeno about my sore back. (If you don’t know what a zeno is, read this post over at Today’s Little Ditty, but the chief characteristics are the syllable count (8,4,2,1,4,2,1,4,2,1 and the way the one syllable lines must all rhyme).
I said at the time that once I’d written one I would probably write more, and I was right. Here’s another.
We have a new pup, Theodore.
He’s a little
We all love his
but not the way
(Sally Murphy, 2014)
When was the last time you tried your hand at writing a poem? Why not try a zeno, for Michelle’s challenge, or just for yourself?
