NaPoWriMo 2013 – Day 8 – Alone.

09 Apr

I’ve spent a fair bit of time reading back over some of my links, related articles and pingbacks and have discovered a few gems I would like to share…

The most famous poem in English that uses the ottava rima form is probably Byron’s Don Juan. And so here is my attempt for today. Using strict rhyming is not something I usually do and so this was a bit of a challenge although fun.

    Had a look at this on Stan’s site. He is nothing like you would expect. I doubt many romantic poets ever looked like Stan, so well done to him for an interesting and very thoughtful poetic observation. As ever, Pete. X
