Lucky Dip – Saturday Mix, 29 January 2022

Welcome to the Saturday Mix – Lucky Dip, 29 January 2022!

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

You may be thinking to yourself, What on earth is Terza Rima?

Luckily, Shadow Poetry has an explanation…

Terza Rima

A Terza Rima is a poem with an eleven syllable count in each line and a rhyming scheme of aba, bcb, cdc, dd.

For even more of a challenge, try the Terza Rima Sonnet. This form of poem has an eleven syllable count in each line and a rhyming scheme of aba, bcb, cdc, ded, ee.


Faith (Terza Rima Sonnet)

Faith is the glue that holds our lives together,
Faith gives us roots that we may withstand trials
Through dark of night and wind and stormy weather.

Faith comes into our lives and sin beguiles,
Giving us strength to overcome temptation,
To glory over Satan and his wiles.

A firm belief will overpow’r frustration
When life hands us more pain than we can handle,
And, at the end, faith will be our salvation.

So live your life in faith bright as a candle,
Oh let it glow, its flicker not abating,
And let there be no hint of sin or scandal.

For He who died for us in Heaven is waiting
With open arms, in faith, no hesitating.

  1. I chose the first option… It’s a bit choppy like rough ocean waters but I did it! 🙂
    I really (well so far this winter has been extremely cold, this morning it was about 12 F or -11 C) like my four seasons – I get about three months of each….
    Here’s my offering; Settlers?
