Internal Rhyme for TOP

I tried writing a poem with internal rhyme this morning but it just wasn't happening. I've written two such poems in my entire life and I read them both to my tenth-graders and they liked this one the best. So here it is from many years ago.

Lure

I love the beach when the reach of the waves
obliterates, inundates, and engraves
the rocks. The sand and land disappear
so no one’s there for this rare atmosphere.

I love the shore when the roar of the surf
comes crashing down with a frown on the turf,
when clouds are gray and the spray stings my cheek~
deserted stretch that is fetching and bleak.

I love the ocean’s emotional tug
so powerful like the pull of a drug
when wind and foam form a comb for the weeds~
alone by choice I rejoice and my needs

are satisfied by the tide when austere.
When others spoil, I recoil and I veer
away to wait, hibernate, while it’s nice.
I need a storm to transform and entice.

Lovely, descriptive and perfect for the prompt.

The true character of a beach, without crowds of bathers, who never get to see it in this way.

Loved that - especially the way you got the rhyming just perfect.

paisley said...

very nicely done linda,, and i know you are not a fan of rhyme but this was really well formed.....

tumblewords said...

wow! I like this one - love the 'down with a frown on the turf'...great stuff!

I hope you don't mind I took this one to read to my seventh graders. I needed an example of internal rhyme, and this is a good one.

Howdy, I'm new to running a blog and internet sites in general and was wondering how you got the "www" included in your web address name? I see your domain, "http://www.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=5586553197417548371&postID=337721941587148176" has the www and my domain looks like, "http://mydomain.com". Do you know how I can alter this? I'm using Wordpress.
Thanks for your time

Hey. I noticed your website title, "Blogger: Linda's Poems" doesn't really reflect the content of your internet site. When composing your blog title, do you believe it's most beneficial to write it
for Search engine optimization or for your visitors? This is something I've been battling with because I want good rankings but at the same time I want the best quality for my visitors.
