Heavenly Spring

Heavenly Spring (Decima) Colorful blooming pear and apple trees Beautiful within the first weeks of spring Everything is heavenly blossoming With gentle blowing winds and humming bees The time to plant some vegetable seeds With the sunshine and rain all the seeds grow Glorious rainbow putting on a show Colorful flowers raising from the ground Nature showing its beauty all around With summer coming, time for spring to go Decima is a style of poetry that is Octosyllabic and has 10 lines. Given the flexible method of counting syllables in Spanish verse, where an "Octosyllabic" line could easily have seven or nine syllables (as normally counted), in writing a decima in English it would seem not unreasonable to write in iambic pentameter (theoretically ten syllables), which comes more naturally to English verse. So for English verse you would use 10 syllables per line. The rhyming scheme is ABBAACCDDC. so in English.. you would have 10 lines of 10 syllables per line... rhyme is above....
