4 in less than forty


Have to be somewhere in 40 mins
Enough time to write at least one
Fortunately I’m not using and pens
Else I would not be close to done

Of course you see the form I write
One familiar yet still complicated
It should be easy I write every night
Why my poems are often post dated

Halfway there only three minutes gone
Can I write eleven of these in my time
Maybe but could I post them all as well
Not sure, but I wouldn’t even bet a dime

The last I didn’t rhyme of first and third
I will admit I normally will rhyme abab
But in my amount of time that’s absurd
I am trying to finish quickly as you see


I already finished one how about another
The next line already in my head of course
Now you are probably saying o brother
This guy is a distinct body member of a horse

Really it’s just practice and having a bit of fun
I am definitely bored at this very early hour
I’m also texting a friend here and think of pun
I’d tell her what I think, but she might be sour

The last of course was purely a joke my friend
No evil thoughts currently in my head Miss PD
I at present, do not have that emotion to lend
Or maybe it was serious the last stanza hehehe

This is so much fun, a great way to pass time
You should try it, if you would possibly dare
I have said time a million times in my rhyme
Take time reading them, go ahead and stare

    Awe, this sounds like more fun than the other. Still :-) I enjoy both of them. I love the way you thought of this in less than 40 min. Hope you meet your marker. I noticed that a few of the lines on the first part don't rhyme. However, I also noticed that PD and hehehe do rhyme... ha ha.. love this one,... I wish i had what it took to do free verse rhyme.. or this form.. for now I will stare... LOL....xox~PD

    Yes, technically the quatrain only has to rhyme on the second and fourth line. Since I was used to writing in shakespearean sonnet form, they rhyme abab, cdcd,efef,gg, hence the abab remark lol. Thanks for the comment.
