The Musette, created by Emily Romano is a poem that consists of three verses of three lines each. 

The first lines have two syllables; the rhyme scheme is a/b/a for the first verse;

the second lines have four syllables, the scheme is c/d/c for the second verse,

and the third lines have two syllables.  e/f/e is the rhyme scheme for the third verse.

The title should reflect the poem’s content.

MARIE ELENA’S MUSETTE:

SUPPLICATION

Kneeling
Before the throne
Dealing
 
Pleading
Just heal her please
Ceding
 
Trying
To want God’s will
Crying

WALT’S MUSETTE:

WORDS OF LOVE

Words flow,
a muse aflame.
Warm glow.

Words rhyme,
they sound the same
o’er time.

Words bloom
in poet hearts.
Love’s plume!

  1. Marie, your poem is touching, true, and beautiful. Walt, I love that second verse especially. I have a question about the form. In the second verse, are all the lines four syllables or only the second one? Whichever, it’s a great form.

    Morning

    Day breaks
    Words stir
    She wakes

    Coffee steam dreams
    Bird song takes wing
    Morning hope streams

    Each day
    Visions
    Replay

  2. Ahead

    Bird sings
    the day awaits
    quick wings

    Earth spins
    my feet pad on
    life wins

    Sap sinks
    beneath dry bark
    star winks

  3. If I Were A Ghost

    If I
    were Casper would
    that I…

    …sailed thru…
    your little world…
    Sit you

    down and
    comfort you with
    warm hands.

    (for D… gorgeous Shepherd pup with his lovely, floppy ears <3)

  4. I can’t believe mine will be first. I’m always a slow poke. Well, if there are some errors still there, it should encourage others that not perfect is normal. 🙂

  5. I’ll return later to do comments. This is my effort for today.

    Hero for the Taking

    Once there,
    He claimed a soul
    Laid bare.

    Made wise
    He saw burdens,
    Man’s lies.

    He gave
    Gentle surcease,
    To save.

  8. RIPPLING

    Carry
    thoughts of past to
    bury

    at Bay
    like pebbles tossed
    away

    Peace found
    in rippling waves
    soft sound

  9. Night Watch

    Beside your bed
    Throughout the night
    Holding your head

    Calming your fears
    In deepest darkness
    Drying your tears

    Stroking your hand
    Within death’s dimness
    Watching you go from land
