Stars and Spring: NaPoWriMo

Spring meander,

goose and gander

sit on their nest

take turns then rest,

lilac scents the air

children play, feet bare

without a care,

each laughing cry

floats to the sky

twinkling bright

in the night,

the goosey pair

now aware

honk and stare,

look with delight

at sparkling light

dancing, giggling in the night

This is Day 28, NaPoWriMo. We’re asked to write a poem in Skeltonic verse. The form is named for English poet John Skelton (c. 1463 – 21 June 1529). It is also called Tumbling verse.

  1. What a wonderful and joyous poem, Merril! I enjoyed the playfulness and imagination this activated including the ending of children’s laughter being sent up into the night’s sky. The geese may just very well look up, since that is where they spend so many hours on their journeys in the atmosphere above the earth. . . πŸ™‚
