The Ages

In the beginning, twas created!:
The acorn, elephant trunk, government branch, leaf of paper;
only to be crumpled up into the streets and chewed upon by a squirrel,
those thoughts I threw away a week ago. 


The form of the poem may not be correct.  So if anyone knows what form this is, please tell me.

    OK ..even though the imagery is intersting and the path [seed/trunk/branch/leaf] is interesting one comes away think so? OK? now what do you the poet wish me to conclude? Your mail related to this write..OK first off I would not use TWAS in a verse which has no old english content [it was] second to be complete you need some sort of context. This is neither the beginning of a mental romp nor the middle nor the end but COULD be anyone of the 3 but is not enough content for a whole poem.L&L

    Hi new friend yes you may safely call this Free Verse, when ever in doubt you can use Verse [never use I do Not Know] if there's even a bit of rhyme in it Rhyme is also a safe category On your verse above I would expand a bit, soup mail mw what you are trying to get across and I can help more.
