Welcome to the Saturday Mix – Lucky Dip,18 April 2020!

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

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

Luckily, Writer’s Digest has an explanation…

Roundabout Poems

Invented by Sara Diane Doyle and David Edwards, who incoporated every poetic element that they really liked.David came up with the meter and feet and Sara added in the repeating line. The rhyme scheme and length was decided on together.The result is a form called the Roundabout. In this form, the rhyme scheme comes full circle while offering repetition of one line in each rhyme set.

The Roundabout is a four stanza poem, with each stanza consisting of 5 lines.The poem is written in iambic and the lines have 4 feet, 3 feet, 2 feet, 2 feet…

  1. Great prompt. I tried to approach this one with simplicity and hope, drawing from the many existing texts on *Fruhlingsglaube.*

    Fruhlingsglaube Nouveau

    Black streaked snow, and slate gray sky

    Before there was the sun

    Frostbit fingers

    And dread that lingers

    Before there was the sun

    Then–suddenly! Green, and pink, and gold!

    There was a sun again!

    A breeze’s caress

    A billowing dress

    There was a sun again!

    There still will be days muddy brown gloom,

    But You won’t fear the rain

    You’ll stand through the showers

    (Quite needed, for flowers)

    But you won’t fear the rain

    Another will be there, through grass, earth, and light

    To see the beauty that Is

    And you’ll see it, too

    Eyes gaze up, as hers do

    To see the beauty that Is

    Keep up the interesting work!
