Liberty-belle, she walks along the shore
Mademoiselle in red platform shoes
Electric-spell cast no more
Scorpion-shell now her Muse
Dwell not on your poison pill
Sell your sadness by the crate
Spell out fire in ink and blood
Rebel voice your armor plate
My poem was written in the lento form for today’s challenge at B&P’s Shardoma and Beyond. According to the Shadow Poetry website, the lento was created by Lencio Dominic Rodrigues and means “slowly” in Italian.
It is to be written in two quatrains and follows a fixed rhyme scheme of abcb, defe as the second and fourth lines of each stanza must rhyme. In addition, the first word of each verse must rhyme as well.
Fancy a shot at it? Create your own lento, link it over at B&P’s Shardoma and Beyond and then visit others lento inspirations 🙂
