If at first you don't succeed....skydiving is not for you ....
If you don't pay your exorcist .... do you get repossessed?
I shall always decide not to decide, unless of course I decide to change my mind.

I'm still working on the forms in your other thread, from the Shadow Poetry site. I wrote one of them for my 30/30 entry today.

My 30/30 today is a form from the linked site. The Diminished Hexaverse is an easy form. It was great fun to write.

Reminds me of a Gunfight I was involved in, we had to write a ballad (in an hour) that included made up words! I won by a landslide
We need more gunfights it's been too long!

Well, don't count on me for anything involving made up words in English... I'd need about four hours for a four line stanza.

Yes, but at what cost? I'd take part in such a "gunfight" anyway, of course, but in all honesty, it was far more difficult for me to make up words than to write the sestina.

I wanted to try something with meter now, but it seems like either I can't tell what the stressed / unstressed syllables are, or the examples on the page don't exactly follow the metre they're supposed to be using. E.g., the following poem is a Quintella, and as such it is supposed to follow a iambic tetrameter (notation by me; * - unstressed, / - stressed):

Code:

*    /    *   *      /      *     *     /
a | flic|ker|ing | flame, | on | the | wall
 *      /      *   /    *   /  *     /
the | sound | of | a, | co|yo|tes | call
 *     /   *      /        /   *    *     /
the | des|ert | winds, | sing|ing | at | night
  /     *      /    *      /    *     /     *
sand|storms | dan|cing, | in | the | moon|light
 *  /   *      /   *     /    *   /
em|bra|cing | lov|ers, | to | be|fall
Is my notation correct?

Tried a Tyburn. It's here. It's not really a Tyburn because the initial four lines must be descriptors, and mine aren't. But then, a lot of the examples on poetrysoup weren't, either...

No good asking me, I can't do it either
