Always  Be  Calm

Don't  Ever  Fear

Grizzly  Hobgoblins

Incessant  Jeer !


Keep  Looking  Majestic

No  One  Pre~sees

Questions  Revealing 

Such  Threatening Unease


Victory  Will  X-ray

Your  Zealousness


Thanks for visiting ~ comments welcome ~ Yours  BRIAN


Try one yourself ~ easy to write ~ harder to rhyme !


The use of the word X-ray in the final couplet is used to imply

that after our Victory over fears and Hobgoblins the Zeal we

used to obtain that Victory will come under scrutiny ~ OK BRIAN

  • Comment from author about the poem: ABCDarian Poems ~ in which each line begins with the succeeding letter of the alphabet ~ are common' Less common are ALPHABETIC Poems in which each WORD begins with the succeeding letter alphabetically. Try on for yourself ! Making them scan and rhyme is more difficult ! There are over 230,000 words listed in the OXFORD ENGLISH DICTIONARY so there are plenty to chose from. Please comment ~ Yours BRIAN XOX

            Interesting form of poetry. Well done. You always bring us literary forms that are poety's quiver. Loved it.

            • BRIAN & ANGELA

              GRACIAS AMIGO ~ There are always two parts to any Poem ~ The STRUCTURE ~ the Rhyme & Rhythm & versification etc and The SUBJECT the Reason in the Poem. Where and when possible the two should complement each oher. With an Alphabetic Poem the Structure fixed ~ the Subject is more fluid but it must be Reason (coherent) unless it is designated as a "Nonsense Poem" and there are plenty of those ! BRIAN.

              Ah - - now this is so clever and the read makes good sense - - your word-use is always impressive my friend.

              • BRIAN & ANGELA

                Thanks FAY ~ you are very gracious. The sense of a Poem (unles it is classified as a "Nonsense Poem") is (for me) as important as it's structure. In English ~ we have 230,000 words at our disposal which makes "English Poetry" a delight to read and write. The use of the word X-ray in the final couplet is to imply that: Having overcome our fears and Hobgoblins our Zeal in securing Victory could come under scrutiny (X-ray). I hoped it all made sense ~ your comment has assured me it actually does ! Thanks BRIAN

                That's impressive! I've only written abc poems using part of the alphabet. You did an outstanding job!! Hugs-Christina

                • BRIAN & ANGELA

                  Thanks CHRIS we have 230,000 words at our disposal ~ choosing 27 in alphabetical order is not difficult ~ arranging them in coherent order is more difficult and rhyming them a challenge ! I have now read this Poem and I am still confused by the final doublet ~ which in a Sonnet (this is a DECAIN) normally adds clarity ! Victory Will X-ray Your Zealousness ? Any suggestions for a kooler ending ? Hugs BRIAN.

                  • Christina8

                    I would xray a zebra or something. But thats just me. Have a great day!
