Flickering flame battles lingering night
Prometheus’ gift drives off human fright
Nox rumbles, her fury ever thwarted
By family’s grace and Apollo’s light
For dVerse’s Poetics. This week is about Candles and Lights. I decided to try my hand at creating a Rubaiyat Quatrain, popularized by Edward FitzGerald and based on Persian poetry. It is characterized by rhyming the first, second, and last lines, while the third line does not rhyme with the other three (AABA).
Head on over to dVerse and read some great poets. Join in if inspiration strikes!
Hope you enjoy.
Happy Reading and Writing!
