An Experiment in Style

Regardless of the fact that folklore tells us 'curiosity killed the cat' I am a curious person, and can never resist a new challenge. I saw instructions for writing a Welsh style poem called a GWAWDODYN, and I couldn't resist. It isn't all that different actually following a 9-9-10-9 syllable lines with that extra syllable in line 3, but not at the end, in the middle, a little to either the right or the left. This is my one and only so far, and I liked it so much I wanted to share it with you. Here it is.

Memories Fond memories swirl about my heart Whispering how long we've been apart Yet 'if only' failed to restart sweet grace Nor allow a glimpse of your dear face.


A Restless Thunder
