A dose of fetish. Good friends. An incomparable muse.
Welcome to the Saturday Mix – Lucky Dip, 26 February 2022!
For this week’s Lucky Dip, I have reached into my mystery bag and pulled out a Ottava Rima. The topic is up to you!
You may be thinking to yourself, What on earth is Ottava Rima?
Luckily, Shadow Poetry has an explanation…
A Ottava Rima is a poem written in 8-line octives. Each line is of a 10 or 11 syllable count in the following rhyme:
one octive poem. abababcc
two octive poem. abababcc, dededeff
three octive poem. abababcc, dededeff, ghghghii
…so on and so on
He is There
When sorrow lies entrenched within your heart
And doubts, like ocean waves, around you churn,
When chaos reigns o’er life and won’t depart
And for the peace of yesterday you yearn,
When evil thoughts are tearing you apart
And there is nowhere left for you to turn,
When dark of night persists throughout your day,
It’s time to fall upon your knees and pray.
For God is there, He’s always by your side,
He is your life’s companion and your friend,
He’s with you through each bitter storm you ride,
From morn’s first light to sunset at day’s end.
You must give up your bitterness and pride
And to your Lord extend your hand again.
He only wants for you to ask Him in
And you will be forgiven for your sin.
