April is National Poetry month and we cant let this celebration go by at WV Writers and Poets without at least one prompt (maybe even two or three)!

So, poets! To celebrate National Poetry monthhere is a prompt:

This form is called CHUG. (because it chugs up and down hills like a little train). It describes colour and the title must name the colour the poet is writing about.

A CHUG has four stanzas and a stanza is comprised of 4 lines:

Stanza I
The first line is one syllable;
Second line has two syllables;
The third line has three syllables;
And the fourth line has ten syllables.
