Okay, in my excitement over the launch of National Poetry Month and my poetry project, I forgot to post our stretch! *SIGH* Multi-tasking is not my forte these days.
Since my first post of the month was about Z and the zeno, and since Kate Coombs has already gotten us started, let's write a zeno! A zeno is a 10-line verse form with a repeating syllable count of 8,4,2,1,4,2,1,4,2,1. The rhyme scheme is abcdefdghd. You can read some examples Pat Lewis wrote at Poetry A-Z: Z is for Zany, Zoological, and Zeno.
I haven't been writing round-up posts of these poems in some time, so be sure to come back (or subscribe to the comments) and see the wonderful pieces folks are sharing.
