A poem form with severe limitations Add many stringent applications Does one write with intellect Oh! Heck, incorrect! 'Tis shot down! Decked! So this clown Will just disconnect Don't worry 'bout that aspect Whoa! Just do total aberration A poem form with severe limitations

You’ve hit the nail on the head with this excellent poem. Are we better poets within a box or do we write better without? An age old question pondered by artists of all genre. As far as I know, there is no definitive answer. This is artistry within restriction. Best wishes. Deb

Deb, I am honored with your kind review of my work. I am glad that you also have pondered the question. I guess sometimes we can just jot down thoughts and let them flow then maybe at a later time put that idea into a form. Thanks for the visit to my page. Sara

Maybe by Trump are being intimidated; Wherever we are uncomfortably situated; Act on stage, Latest rage; Him as President have been humiliated.

James, Trump is not bothering me. The news and media is bothering me with their way of taking one little item out of context and making him look worse than he is even though he can do a good job on his own. I think the man has a problem but he can work on that and be the best president if the news will leave him alone. Sara

Ha!!! Methinks you do not like my form very much. For some reason i work better when limitations are put on me, but i do realize the Andaree is a bit more limiting than normal!! i think you did a great job nonetheless!

Andrea, The first one that I did was much harder to write. Maybe my brain is failing somewhat. Age takes it toll. The form is difficult and I have to write down what is expected for each line then work from that. Thanks for stopping by. Sara

Ha Sara! I like this! I’m often caught between correct form and a good poem. Say I need one more syllable than the form “allows” - do I use it and spoil the form, or let the form work for me, and use that syllable I need to express myself well? Prefer the latter. Actually, ironically, if you changed the first line to “a poem with NO severe limitations”, I think it would be a perfect Andaree! Anyway, clever. :-)

Nina, Thanks for the kind and helpful comment on my work. I was just joking around about the form when one has to keep syllable count, get rhymes that work and worry about making sense with the last line as well. I wasn't really trying to completely do a correct form. Sara
