Excerpt from my May 21, 2018 poem, "First Rose of May"
for Gregory R. Barden's Arbitrium Divisa 7 Poetry Contest
Also I compressed the last lines of this form
 invented by Gregory Barden: The Qarinage Rhyme


She is hope anew now that she’s in view! Will she – like me – feel her soul plunge to sorrow? Or will I – like her – be until tomorrow destiny evading. . . a wish faint and fading? Jan. 28, 2020 For Line Gauthier's Bite Size Poem No.40 Poetry Contest
