New Poetry Forms



I try my best to try new forms
I count and rhyme and count and rhyme
Oh, alas it takes so much time

How to count oh, I'm so forlorn
Why do I try when I'm so shy
Each time I try I can't conform

I acquiesce as well decline
I try my best to try new forms





This is my second attempt at Octain, a new poem form, invented by
 by Luke Prater for One Stop Monday.

  5. Niiiiice! I often feel this way when encountering new forms; especially if it must be in iambic pentameter. I think you handled this form perfectly.

  6. Hi Elena -

    What a beautifully presented blog.

    I try my best to try new forms
    I count and rhyme and count and rhyme
    Oh, alas it takes so much time

    How to count oh, I'm so forlorn
    Why do I try when I'm so shy
    Each time I try I can't conform

    I acquiesce as well decline
    I try my best to try new forms

    You nailed the form, I'm not sure what your worried about! O like your line 'I acquiesce as well decline'. I think if you worried less about getting the form right (which you did) and looked more at the words you'd be happier with yourself :)

    Warm regards

    Luke
