Poems
« 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
I'd be more apathetic if I weren't so lethargic.

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

Do Haiku's count for triumph points? :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.

...Simply amazing... love it...
Most effective elected official. Ever. (not counting Jubal)

He is Jubal the modder, Jubal the wayfarer, Jubal the admin. And he has come to me now, at the turning of the tide.
