Lanturne – Lovesong

Theme : Poetry Types  
 


This poem is about a girl, waiting for her love, who’s fighting in a war far away. She is asking the wind to remind him, of the promise that he made, that he would return back – alive.


Will
zephyre,
carry my
lovelorn song, to
you?
Would
these notes
muffle sounds
of exploding
shells?
Midst
cries of
fading lives
sooth your aching
soul
And
gently,
remind you
of promises
made?

The Lanturne is a five-line verse shaped like a Japanese lantern with a syllabic pattern of one, two, three, four, one.

    Your poem is lovely, but I am also commenting to say that another Liz – whose blog address is above – asked me to visit your blog. She loved your poem and found a useful address here, but for some reason can't post comments. I hope this makes sense and that you contact Liz Brownlee.
