Period 8

Limericks by Edward Lear from a Book ofNonsense

There was an Old Man of Kilkenny,

Who never had more than a penny;

He spent all that money,

In onions and honey,

That Old Man of Kilkenny


alone by ryter roethicle ballad
Alone by RyterRoethicle (Ballad)


Have you ever really felt alone,

In a room crowded, with people

With the buzz of conversation,

Ignoring, wanting to decouple? http://thepoetsgarret.com/2009Challenge/form1.html

Have you ever really felt alone,

With someone lying next to you,

And you don't really feel her there,

When you belong to someone new.

Have you ever had to carry on,

That nothing seems to be amiss

And yet your mind is miles away

To where your heart still exists.


ode to myself ode
Ode to Myself (ode)

Ode to Myself

Just as Walt Whitman would say,

if he were with me today.....

For I have true love inside

Any egotisms have surely died.

The beautiful song that strives to be heard

this song is clearer than any songbird.

There is no reason to feel pity

for my God and his love is always with me.

And I will try to learn as much as I should,

knowing that there are no problems,

just opportunities to be good


the dero by terry clitheroe free verse
The Dero by Terry Clitheroe (free verse)

The Dero

Every morning as we rode out training

We would see this dero arrive

Shuffling along, unaware of life around

Clutching his life in a brown paper bag

He would settle into his corner of the bus shelter

His special seat http://thepoetsgarret.com/2014Challenge/form07.html

Rain or shine he'd be there

As we'd ride past.

As we rode past.

He awoke from his alcohol induced slumber

For a minute, once again he was a hero

As he leapt into the air and caught the football

"What a mark" you could hear him say

As he punched the air with his fist

Holding his imaginary ball to the crowd

Then he settled down once more

Into his corner of the bus shelter

His special seat

And we rode on.

Terry Clitheroe

edgar allen poe poem about his cousin
Edgar Allen Poe poem about his cousin

Elizabeth it is in vain you say

"Love not" - thou sayest it in so sweet a way:

In vain those words from thee or L.E.L.

Zantippe's talents had enforced so well:

Ah! if that language from thy heart arise,

Breath it less gently forth - and veil thine eyes.

Endymion, recollect, when Luna tried

To cure his love - was cured of all beside -

His follie - pride - and passion - for he died.


freeverse stood a house
Freeverse: Stood a house

In the woods stood a house,

Dog looked through the window,

saw a Cats Prancing past

and he knocked upon the door

"Dog, Dog let me in,"

"I would like to have a drink"

"Cats, Cats come inside,"

"and let's have a cup of Dr. Pepper


haiku poem
Haiku Poem

Indifference sets.

Fear moves white nuns and rain plays.

Shadows hunt summer.


haiku poem 2
Haiku Poem #2

Hands hunt a paper.

Nuns diminish yet sheep turn.

The lemons flutter.


tanka 1
Tanka #1

The landscapes leave earth.

Fluttering midnight flutters.

A shadow turns mouths.

The yellow tall angels break.

The played ships talk or snow wakes


tanka 2
Tanka #2

Rain twists eagerness.

Flustered children hunt the boats.

Blue heat finds stanzas.

Feared priests wake or good men turn.

A tough city carouses.

Limerick #1

There once was a man named Stan.

Who ate a frying pan.

But the pan got mad,

To be treated so bad.

They were both smacked by a fan


limerick 2
Limerick #2

There once was a man named Joe.

Who ate pizza so slow.

But the pizza hated,

To be eaten by the man.

They were going to step on his toe
