QUOTE (Just Daniel @ June 11 2004, 07:31)
I haven’t time to do justice
to such a form as this, as this
is scootin’ time; I’d be remiss
must go; don’t dis… must go; don’t dis

me first attempt at monotet,
since I’ve no time jest now to set
a spell and chat until I get
the feel fer it… the feel fer it

Hey Daniel!  :sun:

Nice to read you again!  :lovie:  :dance:

This is an excellent reply!

Let's see:

In all the times we've crossed a pen
or two, I've been a clucky hen
who yearns to interact with you
this fact is true, this fact is true.

I wrote this poem for my son, Anthony

Precious Memories

Softly crooned songs, day's fading light,
rock baby to sleep every night.
So innocent in his own right,
wondrous delight, wondrous delight

Wishing precious dreams little one,
close your eyes baby, day is done.
Cuddle with winkie, night's begun,
slumber til sun, slumber til sun.

"Mommy has your bottle right here
close your eyes now, mommy is near."
Softly brushes away a tear,
"Nothing to fear, nothing to fear."

Many diapers, wipies, and Pooh,
bottles, binkies, and winkie too.
lots of precious memories grew,
now twenty-two, now twenty-two.

Grace Oh’s Us Art

A monotetra fills its space
with rhymes, but moves along with grace
and attitude; its subtle bass
thu-thumps its pace, a thumping pace.

It takes you where you didn't know
a heart could wander safe below
a mind that's kept alert with joe…
yet walk so slow, walk oh so slow.

Exploring's not monotonous;
it may be even humorous
to see the contrast; it's a plus
we should discuss…. We must discuss

what's going on inside that heart—
the one not pulsing blood but art
its spirit's aching to impart…
it's off the chart… way off the chart.

A Musing Form

While strolling through the halls today
I found a form, left on display,
whose beard was long and hair dark grey;
fading away, fading. A way

and opportunity arose
since no one’s here with poem or prose
that I might bring it back. Suppose
if someone knows; if someone’s nose

is tweaked they’ll join and resurrect
the Mono-tetra and reflect
upon its ease and then correct
a certain speck. It’s circumspect

that when this form’s brought to the top
it will bring forth a burgeoned crop
of interesting poems. Don’t drop
or muse will stop. Our muse will stop.

The Knack

Would that those who had come to pen
their thoughts and dreams without chagrin
had stayed around much longer when
their peers chimed in. Their peers chimed in

to help with some critiqued advice
and hoped suggestions would suffice
to polish gems that shined like ice
which would be nice. What would be nice

if all the folks who left came back
into Mosaic’s little shack
to show their expertise or lack
but want the knack. They want the knack.

Harried Christmas

As Twenty-Seventeen winds down
and Eighteen’s babe is in its gown
we praise the One who wears the crown
in every town. In every town

you’ll find the painted effigies
in yards and under dying trees
with decorations hung to please
that no one sees. That no one seize

an opportunity to pray
upon this sacred holiday
instead of shopping each display
for a toupee. Foray to pay.

An Egg's Crack

You have a knack with that old pen
to cause my brain to stop and think
about your words, and once again
you prod until you find a chink

in rusty armor that I wear
so you can poke more fun at me
as though I stand before you bare
for you and all the world to see.

I'm Humpty Dumpty on a wall
precariously on my back.
I fear that you will make me fall
upon my crack; you'll make me crack.


YIKES!

Not only did I not use ONE rhyme in each stanza, I did not replicate the first four syllables of each stanza's fourth line, only doing that in the final stanza!!

A Long Goodbye

Why can’t the world view what I see
of Nature; that her panoply
is but a gift to you and me,
each single tree. Each single tree

takes years to grow and when mature
yields fruit or food. It will endure
for centuries, keep our air pure
while some may cure. While some may cure

the ills of man; values imbue
them with a worth one must construe
as priceless treasures which are few.
Bid earth her due! Bid earth adieu.

ERRATA

I can't believe I erred again
and blotched my monotetra pen.
I showed up as an alien,
and clucked as some old ailing hen.
clucked like a hen, some ailing hen.

I need to dust computer keys
so I won't write like amputees
now that I have two better knees;
my writing now should be a breeze.
I'll write with ease; I miss the ease.

On Tuesday I'll be at my house;
at night it's quiet as a mouse.
Perhaps I'll write again and douse
you like a louse; I'm such a louse!

Airing more Errors

Oh my! I've screwed it up again;
my fourth lines don't repeat, and when
I noticed, spit upon my pen!
I've lost my yen; where is my yen?

If only I could get it right
the first time. 'haps once more I'll write
next week, or maybe a fortnight.
It's such a plight; O what a plight!

I see that you're also aware
how much I erred; it's only fair
that we should learn together, bare
of shame and blare; no shame or blare.

Just Human

Although we’re human, as it were
and we are often found to err…
a tiny truth. You might concur,
yet still we stir. We steal and stir

up words until we’re satisfied
with what is wrought for we’ve applied
our skill. That fact can’t be denied
for we have tried. ‘Fore we have tried

to write in unfamiliar form
we study what is called the “norm”
until a flower from the corm
grows like a charm. Goes likely charm.
