COMPENDIUM OF VIGNETTES

VIGNETTE FORM an example In the base motor pool See an off-limits card school- A scheming Bilko takes the pot Hoodwinking top brass was his game, Fast talking his claim to fame. Vignette=a 5 line light verse that tells a short story some further examples as below VIGNETTE-ALL OF A ZITHER Across Vienna's old town In a sewer underground, They tracked down..Harry LIme, A Third Man in a crime- To music so sublime. VIGNETTE -ON THE BEACH Prone,lying side by side Lapped by an ebbing tide, Together upon passion's ride- In love's embrace enlocked This watershed,no longer shocks. ADELAIDE CRAPSEY-IMAGIST A well travelled lass named Adelaide Innovative and never staid, Unmarried,single but no old maid- A short life,latterly full of pain, Her epitaph,the American cinquain. Tribute vignette to Adelaide Crapsey,the American creator of the Cinquain form VIGNETTE- STRINGS & HARPS A vaporetto upon the sea A love departs that could never be- Tears trickle down face, Mahler played at his slowest pace, Langsum,adagietto-slow. Scene from Death in Venice A EULOGY-VIGNETTE William,lived and died in Perth Buried now in Scottish turf- Diarist,poet extraodinaire I do declare...lived a life of pain Yet..lasting fame lies in his cinquain tribute to my favourite Scottish poet -William Soutar note my book of over 100 of his cinquains FLOWERS OF LIFE (isbn 1 903203 473)@ 25$ remains available to buy Vignette-FILLED WITH THE SPIRIT Immersed in the Jordan,flowing fast In readiness for an awesome task The Spirit descended like a dove This man here is my beloved- He still baptises from above Full story at Math 3:16/17
