NaPoWriMo - 2017 - April 9th - Nocturna -- unquiet

The challenge was to write a nine line poem and some examples of form were given.  I've never written a nocturna before, it's nine lines, iambic pentameter and has an ada bdb cdc rhyme scheme...


Nocturna -- unquiet

I never should so late at night eat cheese
although that Stilton is so fine on toast
I can well do without such dreams as these

I started trying to take you to the park
I thought to buy ice-cream, play perfect host
but now we're in the graveyard and it's dark

and creepy, gloomy, all in mist bedecked
but this is my dream, I could be the ghost!
I'll jump out on you for the best effect...
