The Quatrain King



A certain someone Made fun of me Noticed my big use of Quatrains if you please I laughed and chuckled I'm stuck in this bind If I tried something else I'd surely go blind In the years to come They'll be writing bout me The Quatrain King Stuff ya gotta see May sound egotistical Well maybe that's so But renowned the world over From New York to Seoul Could try different forms But that's not for me My passion is Quatrains So just leave me be!

    Hahaha! Stick to stuff you're good at. Not egotistical at all, just thoughtful and honest. :)

    The quatrain King - I like that. I was just writing about how titles find you - I think you are on to something great. Well penned Jack, The Quatrain King.

    There's a saying in french, "chaque un a son gout"... each to his own taste (sorry about the missing accents). Titles are ALL important my friend! Thank you dear Vicky for dropping by... hugs, Jack xoxox

    We love you just the way you are! Mike, Dragon, me, The Trolls, ect... Everyone Agreed!... Besides all the great writers use quatrains... After all... we do... And we rhyme, too... They're just jealous that we can do it soo good... At least... That's what Dragon says!... When you wrote about us... It put you always at the top of our list... And Dragon knows good stuff... You can tell... cause no one ever disagrees with him... only once... LOL... At least not without a fire proof suit!

    I remember when you dabbled into other forms, you did pretty good my friend, but you just didn't feel comfortable writing in those forms...so you went back to your trusty Quatrains! I can't say that I blame you, it is fun writing in the Quatrain form, I still do it myself! There is something free about writing in this form! But I really do love writing in other forms, there is something challenging writing in other forms and you get a sense of accomplishment! This is a lovely poem, Great Work!!

    My definition of poetry is and will always be the Quatrian. I appreciate and admire those who write in other forms. They are the 'true' poets... I'm just a dabbler! But ever since Poetry Soup entered my life, the sun has never stopped shining. Your good buddy, Jack
