Bold Type

Written for:  dVerse Poets Pub - Quadrille #167:  BOLD-ly Go
(posted by whimsygizmo)

"In my own personal world, I choose a word each year to define the days ahead. This year, two words have wooed me: Happy, and BOLD. Today, I want you to boldly go, and embrace the bold poet within you. As you write your Quadrille, use some form of the word bold."

I’m told
you’re bold,
bit cold–
wearing gold
You can be droll
fit no mold
yet I’m not sold
love will hold
as years unfold.
You like control;
I’m a free soul
won’t be cajoled.
I can be bold-
faced; simply scroll.

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.

    Sara, this reads like a rap song, I bet it would sound great spoken with beats.

    As usual, excellent rhyming here, Sara. I agree with Lisa; it would make a fun rap song.
