Battle of the Sexes

Definitely in women's minds, men's promises are over-rated
Defiantly inside his head, he does not know she's aggravated  
Assuredly her telling him not to call  was not translated                    
Reluctantly he turns away for their love is terminated  



Rich Man, Poor Man

Prince
wealthy, regal
warring, wenching, plotting
statesman, soldier, farmer, servant
starving, working, dying
poor, humble
Pauper
 
December Form Challenge, 2012 :iconkiwi-damnation::iconprojectdfc:

The first poem is a Magali Shairi - a Georgian form which features stanzas of 4-lines long and 16 syllables per stanza. The syllables are divided up into 4 syllabic lots and each line follows a mono rhyme of at least 2
syllables. There are virtually no examples as far as written poems, so I am not sure if I did this correctly.

The second poem is a Diamante. It is written like this:

Noun
Adjective, Adjective
Verb, Verb, Verb
Noun, Noun, Noun, Noun
Verb, Verb, Verb
Adjective, Adjective
Noun

It is generally done with opposites/antonyms in mind.

You know...

You could put these all together; they'd make the perfect poetry book for teaching purposes. The instructions are exactly long enough to provide the outline without boring the crap out of your average teen, and your examples are just the sorts of things to inspire those that would be inspired. Throw in the bawdy limericks, and you've totally got it covered!

Something to think about.

Also. Thanks for the lessons! :)

Thanks very much. I had not really given that any thought and am not sure how to go about it. I am still such a novice in this genre...

A little wonky in certain areas. The flow and grammatical structure is a bit misleading. Good effort.

Wow!

But as I don't eant to just repeat what the last deviant said, I'd like to comment I really enjoyed this reading. Brief, but with impact.
And thanks for the detailed description, it was interesting and useful.
Unfortunatelly, I can't say if you did it correctly, but whether you did it or not, the poem doens't lose its merit, it's well written, and it's worth-reading.

Good luck with the contest!

BTW: I don't know if you have Twitter, but I found your poem there. It's on Deviantart Lit feed.
I'll paste the link so you can check it yourself:

Thanks! Some of these forms are so obscure that it is hard to find examples. I finished all but one form, the sestina. Have a great 2013.

Ah, I really like the last one! I'm very much a fan of that style (though I just realised that now. Don't know much about poem forms)

The first one is nice as well.

Pretty much.... I admit as a woman sometimes I expect my man to be able to read my thoughts, which is ludacris, of course....
