Yesterday, I saw for the first time, a poetic form called "Huitain". My sweet friend Patti (she is my Sister, in my heart) published a poem using this form - eight lines of 8 to 10 syllables, using a rhyming scheme of a-b-a-b-b-c-b-c. I have decided to experiment in Huitain and the result is below. I hope you like it.
Warm and lovely Daytona Beach,
We reveled in the waves and sand,
But the Ocean had a lesson to teach,
Hurt comes quick, help beyond your reach,
And the Ocean is deep and strong,
You must heed this, as I beseech.
Beware the Ocean's siren song.
