Rhythm and talent
« on: January 27, 2010, 05:28:14 AM »
Hello everyone. Hope you all good. I wasn't sure where to post this but i thought it might be fun I was sitting at work and about half an hour ago i thought about this idea and how it might be entertaining but also may reveal a few talented members. So i have very quickly put the following together and hope that you all have a go at some form of rhythm...!(that of course means something that you can put here for us to share) :-)


How about we await
While you all have some time to create
Some rhyme for us to enjoy
Or maybe just to annoy
I am sure it would be fun
You know, YOU could be the one

Put pen to paper now
And I?m sure that you?ll allow
The flow of words so sweet
Like magic appear on a sheet
You know, YOU could be the one

You may find you?ll impress
Chosen words that will confess
On Valentines day of love
On a pedestal above
You know, YOU are the one

Teech

Everytime I attempt to write poetry I can't stop myself making the first line:

"There was an old lady from Ealing"

and now I know where chek is I don't want to run the risk of offending his gran..

Maybe I'll improve with some thought though.
Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can put off until the day after.

There is an exception to every rule, apart from this one.

It's OK, she wasn't from Ealing :D

Now Zoidberg is the popular one!

I couldnt write a poem/limerick if you paid me to without having a complete aneurysm.

There once was a fellow McSweeny
Who spilled some gin on his weenie
Just to be couth
He added vermouth
Then slipped his girlfriend a martini

Ive seen the world and I wish to weep
But a thousand tears could not
erase the stain of my past sins

Sorry,,heard it in a dream once
I keep my standards low.
That way im never disapointed.

It is lovely when you read someones words that have an impact. Some people are very poetic. I thought about Haiku and after putting several 17 syllables together i only ended up with this half decent 3 lines.

Thunder, white horses
Rugged cliffs and memories
Now, what do you see?

This made me smile. The bit about not being able to write without having an aneurysm. ha ha
