Saturday Mix – Lucky Dip, 2 June 2018

Welcome to the Saturday Mix, 2 June 2018 – Lucky Dip!

For this week’s Lucky Dip, I have reached into my mystery bag and pulled out a ZaniLa Rhyme. The topic is up to you!

You may be thinking to yourself, What on earth is a ZaniLa Rhyme?

Luckily, Shadow Poetry has an explanation…

ZaniLa Rhyme

The ZaniLa Rhyme, a form created by Laura Lamarca, consists 4 lines per stanza.
The rhyme scheme for this form is abcb and a syllable count of 9/7/9/9 per stanza.
Line 3 contains internal rhyme and is repeated in each odd numbered stanza.
Even stanzas contain the same line but swapped.
The ZaniLa Rhyme has a minimum of 3 stanzas and no maximum poem length.

Example of ZaniLa Rhyme

Sing Me A Song

Give me a cloud so that I may sit
to watch the world far below;
Sing me a song and make me belong,
With a tune only you and I know.

Give me an angel, help me find peace
for a mind tortured in hell;
Make me belong and sing me a song,
Hum the tune and I’ll sing it as well.

Give me your shoulder so I may cry,
release pain and take a rest;
Sing me a song and make me belong,
And we’ll improvise upon request.

Give me your hand, together we’ll walk
through our rainbow-coloured dreams;
Make me belong and sing me a song,
Sing Lovers’ glory to the extreme.

    Rhyme and syllable count… eek.
    I hope I’ve done justice in three verses:
