NaPoWriMo 15

NaPoWriMo’s prompt today: write a terza rima.   This is a poem written in the following rhyme sequence: ABA BCB CDC  D    The poem can go on for many three line stanzas this way…  but here is my version

Rove the wayward sidewalk

 with needles and green thread.

Take a piece of saffron chalk

 

To circle what you’ve said.

Mend the tattered ivory sheet

Then put your heart to bed.

 

In your sleep you’re fair and fleet,

Blue gems upon your toes

And scarlet wrappers ’round your feet,

 

And so your story goes.
