THIS WEEK’S WORDS come from “A Winter Twilight” by Angelina Weld Grimké: silver, trees, path, down, chased, lean, apart, star, whisper, naked, fir, fields

Arguments in the dark

Dark nights when they were apart

Apart from the whispers of the trees

Trees in the field and of their hearts

Chasing the stars

Stars in the sky twinkling at night

Night  when they argued

Argued down the path

Silver bells and Santa on the sleigh

Sleigh with the reindeers along the firs

Firs with snow at the tips

Tips to reconcile for him and hers*

  • Loop Poetry is a poetry form created by Hellon. There are no restrictions on the number of stanzas nor on the syllable count for each line. In each stanza, the last word of the first line becomes the first word of line two, last word of line 2 becomes the first word of line 3, last word of line 3 becomes the first word of line 4. This is followed for each stanza. The rhyme scheme is abcb.
