Written for: Go Dog Go Cafe - Donna Matthew's challenge:
Poetry form: "Ae Freislighe"
. Quatrain stanzas (4-line stanzas)
. 7 syllables per line
. Lines 1 and 3 rhyme together, but they rhyme as three syllables
. Lines 2 and 4 rhyme together as two syllables (xb)
. The final syllable, word, or line of the entire poem should be the
same as the entire poem begins (the poetic term for this is dunadh)
Poem can be as concise as one stanza and scale out as far as a poet wishes to push it.
The sight was most surprising.
Meat bins were missing turkeys–
a shortage, I'm surmising.
I will not eat tofurkey.
Cannot find the cranberries.
by this time bags are displayed.
Hope guests will have sympathy
if we must eat out today.
