Blog It Or Lose It

enchanted

Into darkness /
our cars press on – /
mud, mess, tension – /
children shun sleep – /
day done, winter done: now on to spring we creep //

Enchanted Forest

Vole explains the Ya-Du as follows:

  • 1, 2, or 3 stanzas, each with 5 lines;
  • Lines 1, 2, 3, and 4 have four syllables;
  • Line 5 has 5, 7, 9, or 11 syllables;
  • Lines 4 and 5 have end rhyme;
  • Lines 1, 2, and 3 have climbing rhyme in syllables 4, 3, and 2;
  • Lines 3, 4, and 5 have climbing rhyme in syllables 4, 3, and 2;
  • There is a reference to the seasons.

Here is my poem again, color coded:

Into darkness                    /
our cars presson –          /
mud, mess, tension –    /
children shunsleep–     /
day done, winter done: now on to spring we creep//

Awkward…
