for Fireblossom Friday
Ack! I had already taxed my brain by writing a poem that rhymed, before I saw Shay's prompt at Real Toads: Fireblossom Friday : write a rhyming poem with one of two rhyme schemes. I chose abab, bcc The illustration that sparked the poem is by W.T. Benda.
Life to life, in goodly guise,
love to lover plights her troth.
A true love cannot, too, be wise.
Love or ease - one can't have both.
Remember, when you make your oath,
you give serenity away,
to burn with angst both night and day.
(Yes, I'm old and jaded. Hee hee. I would have liked one more line, to add a note of hope, but rules are rules.)
