Title: Poems
Post by: comrade_general on November 05, 2013, 10:08:00 PM
For those of us who don't write a book's worth. ;)


A haiku:

The heart is removed
               And shredded into ribbons
                              The body is crushed

That is both brilliant and intensely disturbing, CG. Well done.  :P

Looks like a poem and sounds like a poem.  :)

I am unlikely to write much if any more poetry for a while. Anyway, here's an old english roses are red-type poem I wrote (I was a bit loose with the metre for it to properly be OE-alliterative-verse but that's really hard).

rōsan ond appellēaf, rēade ond hæwen bēoþ
gelīce wīcingum blōd, on bryme gespiled
sigle ic feohtan, mid mē scule þū cuman


Approximate translation:

Roses are red,
Violets are blue
Vikings' blood
Spilt on the sea too
I'm sailing to fight
with me you should come

(there wasn't a good way to make that last line fit the rhyme in modern english, oh well)

Wunderbar :D Welcome to Exilian, may your stay be long and prosperous.  :)

If you want a rhyming rendering, maybe:

Roses are red,
Violets are blue
Vikings' blood
Spilt on the sea too
I'm sailing to fight
So come with me, you!

?

Republicans are red,
Democrats are blue,
Neither of them
Give a armadillo about you.
