How do you Rhyme ??

How do you Rhyme ??

A Poem by Gee
"

Writing rhyming verse, some make it look so easy....( Oh no, not I)

"
One can syllable count
or try tapping a beat
with ones hands on a desk
or a floor with ones feet,
but whatever ones choice
words must trip off the tongue,
like a favourite verse
from a song when it's sung.

So grab you a pencil
and paper yet sullied,
consider your subject
at leisure not hurried,
then slowly but surely
words spring to your mind,
and there writ before you
rhyming verse you will find.

Nicely done and to the point. Sometimes for me, it just fits right, and other times it's like pulling teeth, then trying to put them back in! Anyway, yours seems to work well enough! Nice.

i love your rhyming words, & to even think of writing a poem about it, is terrific. a great poem gee!!

whilst i do write rhyme sometimes, i don't always get the meter quite right, maybe the trick is to use short words ?

Some def do make it look easy and then there are some like me who used to think poetry is another name for rhyming lol. But ah, you're so right, it does take an effort.
Nicely written, Gee. I enjoyed reading :)

A wee bit of thinking and effort.
Glad you enjoyed
Thank you
Sometimes the words simply will not come. Other times, they flow like a fast running river, and my pen almost trips over itself in its haste get them down before they disappear back into the far recesses of my mind.

As you say my dearest Gee, 'At leisure, not hurried,' is the key.

Beccy.

Thank you
It really is that easy. But readable? that's another story. Your attempt i believe was very successful. Don't tell me you wrote that in five minutes, that would depress me.

It's actually quite hard to do. Takes a lot of practice. It may look easy, but it really isn't. You've managed your rhymes very well here Gee.
