Lord when will you change your artist’s palette
Gone with gray…e’en turn the hue of rabbit
Toss me flowers…confetti at my feet
My vote for Spring cast in open ballot
E’en as I wait and watch the darkness creep
And burning winds deceive and bring no heat
Though I need taste A dark and dreary cup
Bright stars above will hug me while I sleep
dVersepoetspub.com. The prompt..a rubaiyat …
A classical Persian quatrain or double couplet with 13-syllable lines with a rhyme scheme of either AABA or AAAA.
Other variations include 10-syllable lines, which I opted with alternating rhyme scheme to tie in the two stanzas.
My thoughts to inspire this poem is my impending impatience of the season and the longing for Spring, yet knowing there is comfort and beauty in both if I focus my eyes on it.
