The poetry thread

    Just write some rhyming lines if you can,
    To follow those before is the plan,
    Let us hope that the Muse will your pen inspire
    And the `poetic word count will get much higher,
    But try to make it rhyme and no blank verse,
    It's more fun this way, no rhyming sounds worse!
    Don't spend long, just let the words flow,
    That's all from me now go, go go!

    To bow to the poet's thoughts
    a wish for rhymes of many sorts.

      A very good start indeed,
      More rhymes like this are what we need!

    I can't help but think of Matthew Kirk.
    I'm afraid he might just go berserk.
    Instead of passing by without clicking,
    He'll open this thread and start picking
    on all the rhyming words he reads
    and their authors - that's what feeds
    his ego and his anger, you know.
    So instead of a poem maybe I'll just go
    publish a recipe hub instead.
    Perhaps that won't hurt his pretty li'l head.
    Oh that's right! He's way above us there, too.
    Nah... I don't care what he will do.
    He doesn't have to read it, you know.
    Everyone keeps telling him so.
    But if he passes poems by without a mention
    He won't get any of that delicious attention.
    He surely likes to stir the pot
    Cooking up trouble 'til it's nice and hot.
    He's making troll stew --  from scratch, no doubt.
    I'll make it from a box, just to watch him turn red and thrash about.

      Sorry SmartandFun I missed your submission.
      As formatting in italics was my humble mission.

        No need for apologies; I don't mind.
        The italics looks nice. You are very kind.

    A challenge of sorts from the Bard on the isle.
    Poets heed the call, make the green man smile.
    Bard has started, and 2uesday has too.
    Would be a bit lonely with only two.
    Detractors are saying poetry is passe.
    They don't understand the game we play.
    After awhile it's as easy as pie.
    So rhyme now hubbers, it's do or die!

    SmartAndFun and Snakeslane have the Bardic spirit
    But where are all the rest?
    Come on you budding poets,
    With your poetic best!

    I don't like poetry, or rhyming really
    But I have to say this most sincerely
    You guys create some wonderful stuff
    And even though mine is very rough
    And definitely isn't good enough
    I offer in a supportive way
    So poets can continue making hay
    Rhyme with other stuff that sounds like hay
    Even when it isn't spelt the same - example neigh
    And curiously when all is said and done
    I'm sure I'm not the only one
    To notice that the only rhyming pun
    For the critic known as Matthew Kirk
    The only rhyming word is berk.

    edit: I thought of another rhyming word but don't want to risk a ban.

    Well, thank you, Mark Ewbie, for giving it a go,
    You made me chuckle, don't you know?

    Politics and religion are not on my writing scheme.
    It is in rhyme and fictional stories that I dream.

    Green Bardposted 4 years ago

    Whatever takes your fancy can inspire your poetry,
    And making dreams come true is the best way to be!
    So thank you, 2uesday, for your words that rhyme,
    This new thread is getting longer all in good time!

    Bard's poetry forum is going slow
    Perhaps the title is not exciting?
    Hub forums not a place that poets go.

    Some poets shy away from public show
    Where trolls lure with baiting and inciting
    Bard's poetry forum is going slow.

    Poets would rather write than make a show
    Be inspired by something more inviting
    Hub forums not a place that poets go.

    A summer lake, a country lane in snow
    Sweet soothing scenes in poetry delighting
    Bard's poetry forum is going slow.

    If amid the noise and haste one must go
    Take heed of forum pages troll sighting
    Bard's poetry forum is going slow
    Hub forums not a place that poets go.
