NaPoWrimo 2011 April 2, 2011 Poem & Prompt 2 of 30.

April 2, 2011

APRIL 2 –

Yep, NapoWriMo  Day 2 !!!

THE PROMPT FOR TODAY IS

Write a Nonnet   (look below for what this is)

Here’s the poem from Teresa and I for today:

POEM FOR APRIL 2 , 2011

Jonquils merry laugh at day break greets

Drunkenly celebrate new light

Offering winks, chirps at wrens

Squirrels scowl at bright birds

Limb dashing pirates

Rascally thieves

Crow objects

April

Morn.

Its NaPoWriMo create a poem a day each and every day of April.   30-30.

Be creative, have fun, stick to it.  If I can do this, you can do this.

It’s better than watching TV!!!!!!

A Nonnet :   has nine lines

The first line has 9 syllables, the second 8 syllables, the third 7 syllables until the ninth line which has one syllable.

Should have  an iambic meter (stress every other syllable)  baDAbaDAbaDA  or  BAdaBAdaBAda etc.

You may use this prompt for tomorrow poem is you’d like.   If you miss a day or two—it’s okay.   Even better you can make up a day later when you have more time.

  1. I think this is a very good poem, good example of this form. The form is easy, but for some reasom I am having trouble keeping the meter consistently marching iambic, it wants to slow down.
