Written for:  dVerse Poetry Pub - Poetry Form:  Loop Poetry
(posted by Grace)

"Loop Poetry is a poetry form created by Hellon. There are no restrictions on the number of stanzas nor on the syllable count for each line. In each stanza, the last word of the first line becomes the first word of line two, last word of line 2 becomes the first word of line 3, last word of line 3 becomes the first word of line 4. This is followed for each stanza. The rhyme scheme is abcb."

In front of my house stands a Sycamore tree
Tree-lined streets provide shade
Shades of Autumn are pleasing
Pleasing me always–my dogs' charades

How I long to be at the ocean
Ocean tides move me to peace
Peace is desperately needed on earth
Earth must halt destruction or cease


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.
