Saturday Mix – Lucky Dip, 18 May 2019

Welcome to the Saturday Mix – Lucky Dip, 18 May 2019!

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

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

Luckily, Shadow Poetry has an explanation…


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 second lines have four syllables, and the third lines have two syllables. The rhyme scheme is a/b/a for the first verse; c/d/c for the second verse, and e/f/e for the third verse. The title should reflect the poem’s content.

Example of a Musette

Birds of Happiness

Rare sight—
Eastern bluebirds

Blue wings
Flutter, tugging
Heart strings . . .

Bring luck,
Great happiness
To pluck.
