Example

I sought for love to no avail.
Because I did not understand
Just what love was? I had to fail.
I searched for love both far and wide.
But love obeys no mans command.
Fate is in charge and will decide.

Then love found me : So ends my tale
I thought I was too old for love,
my youthful dreams grown old and stale.
I was convinced there was no chance.
Although throughout my life I strove.
To find my partner for loves dance.

I sought for love to no avail.
Then love found me so ends my tale.

Okay poets.... muses' to get their thinking caps on,
