Saturday Mix – Lucky Dip, 16 May 2020

Welcome to the Saturday Mix – Lucky Dip, 16 May 2020!

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

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

Luckily, Writer’s Digest has an explanation…

Rhupunt Poems

Rhupunt is a Welsh poetry form. Here are the guidelines for the rhupunt:

  • The form can be broken down into lines or stanzas
  • Each line or stanza contains 3 to 5 sections
  • Each section has 4 syllables
  • All but the final section rhyme with each other
  • The final section of each line or stanza rhymes with the final section of the other lines or stanzas

Example of a Rhupunt 

She Said Hello

she said hello
in falling snow
outside the show
in december

and then she smiled
and drove me wild
and so beguiled
i remember

like she was sent
for that moment
to leave me spent
like an ember

that slowly died
as she good-byed
because my pride
would not answer
