Gourmet’s Delight

Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2 – InForm:  Duo-Rhyme

“The Duo-rhyme, a poetic form created by Mary L. Ports, is a 10 or 12-line poem, with the first two and last two lines having the same rhyme scheme, and the center of the poem (lines #3 through #8 or #10) having their own separate monorhyme scheme.”

Meter: 8 beats per line, written in iambic tetrameter (4 linear feet of iambic)

Rhyme Scheme: 10-line: a,a,b,b,b,b,b,b,a,a and 12-line: a,a,b,b,b,b,b,b,b,b,a,a

Like technicolor, produce gleams,
I have to buy some collard greens.
Fresh-baked goods smell heavenly–
pies of peach and strawberry.
A cheese display from each country,
and ground coffees, bins of tea.
Samples of apple cider are free.
Fudge in maple, chocolate with cherries.
At Delicious Orchards it does seem
like a gourmet’s wildest dream.


About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
