A Song at Sunrise

A Song at Sunrise



He sang the song at sunrise, to the morning dawn It rose into the atmosphere and carried on and on It fell in gentle rain upon the barren lands It moistened upturned faces and was caught in outstretched hands It blew within warm winds across the marshy fen Was whispered through the waving reeds and reached the hearts of men This song is never ending all around the earth The song that started long ago with our sweet Saviour's birth
POULTER'S MEASURE that is in alternating 12 then 14 syllables lines and so on (the form always commences with a 12 syllable line) Courtesy of Brian Strand Margaret Foster: 18th February 2010

Just rereading this one, and gosh, did I do wrong to call mine rhyme?? Were we supposed to post it as either couplet or quatrain then? I never can figure out exactly what the judges here expect of us!! Yes, mine was iambic (what else? haha) and YOU my lady are a Goddess supreme for metered poetry! LUv, Andrea
