--- Versatile ---



I use to think I could write poetry,
now I've discovered all I do is rhyme.


I now, know what my problem is,
Wow wee and gee wizz!


To create a real smooth flow,
feet is what you need to know.


It is one of those rules,
I don't think I learned in school.


Poems they say, have to have feet,
so I guess I will always miss a beat.


That's why I love free style,
that way I can still be versatile.


With my feet being almost square,
there I don't have much flair.


I'll always march to a different beat,
coz I was born with square feet.


Bare footed for me, is a fashion,
writing poetry, is my passion!

I'd rather be a versatile,
than an ordinary reptile!

Thank you, Dear Eva. Barefooted is the only way to go.
I have been told, my feet are so square, because of the
Native American blood in me. I am glad you enjoyed my poem!

GLYASDI, Jan ))(( )))(((

Dear Friend, B.J. I am happy that you found my poem amusing!
I did not know about writing poems with feet, until I had been writing for a couple of years.
I think that I still don't do it very well, but I still love to try.
I think at times that the message in a poem can be more important!

GLYASDI, Jan ))(( )))(((

I will try to explain feet, in poetry to you Brenda.
But, I find it difficult myself, so I am not sure that I can do
it correctly. Feet refers to the patterns of stressed and
unstressed syllables in a poem. Feet is the same as the meter.
You can look it up on Google, Maybe they can explain it better
than I can. Wished I knew better how to explain it, my friend!
I hope you were able to enjoy the poem anyway. :lol:

I don't think that you need to worry about the "feet" thing Brenda, that's just Jan doing what Jan does, write funny and sometimes off the wall poems. You just have to like them or leave them, and sometimes go away confused. This one I like also, free style and weird and funny. God bless.
