I’m catching up! Imperfect is the theme, Limerick the form (you know, like “There was an old woman from… “) and Enjambment the device. No, I didn’t know what Enjambment was either, so here’s the description I was given:
“Today’s poetic device is all about the arrangement of words on the page, and how that arrangement affects the pace of our reading: enjambment. It may sound like a mouthful. But what it describes is a really simple phenomenon: when a grammatical sentence stretches from one line of verse to the next.”
Make sense? Good. Then let’s make a start:
Rising up, reaching high, in the line
Peaking, clutching at just the right time
the ball. What a pass!
Speeding off, through the backs
Try! Storming over the line.
Yes, in case you hadn’t guessed, I am a rugby fan. Thanks for reading, feedback is welcome etc.
All the best,
