NaPoWriMo Day 18

NaPoWriMo challenged poets to write in the form of a ruba’i.  That translates to an AABA rhyming scheme.   You may be familiar with Robert Frost’s famous Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening, which is a good example.  Here’s my ruba’i.

                     Ruby

The friendly way she took him down

There’s not another gal in town

Could do him justice like she did

And leave him such a happy frown

She left him wanting so much more

It settled such a simple score

He could not believe that that was that

But once was all, there time was for

So off she went and left him there

He followed her with just his stare

But there he stayed, while there she went

With her he never had a prayer.
