Yesterday I started a new poem for the collection I mentioned. To make it more interesting I chose a model with three 6-line Scupham stanzas, which is a poem with the same number of syllables in each line (isosyllabic) and a rhyme pattern of a-b-c-c-b-a. Talk about a challenge! I got through the first draft of the first stanza. Now comes the fun part — doing two more stanzas that will finish telling the story I want to tell. Hey, if we can’t have a little fun now and then, what’s the point?
