Four candle flames were burning bright
While music softly played
I sat and made a nervous sight
Perhaps a bit afraid
But then she saw my nice surprise
And light lit up her eyes

    Isaiah [wonderful biblical name there ;)] You did an EXCELLENT entry. When entering a contest, always list a Form [if you don't know you can do 1 or 2 things..simply label it Verse OR ask the Judge how to label it] for this one..the type of verse which I would say this is Rhyme, so your form is Rhyme [bright/sight-played/ afraid- surprise/eyes] some of it is what is called half rhyme but it still is rhyme ;) Thank YOu for entering. Light & Love
