Today’s assignment in Writing 201 is:
Device: Internal rhyme
Once again I find it necessary to write two separate poems on the topic – an acrostic poem and a poem using internal rhyme.
My acrostic tells the characteristics of the man I love and trust.
The one who is:
Truthful, Responsible, Understanding, Sympathetic and Thoughtful
is the one in whom I trust.
My second poem is a parent imparting wisdom to a child:
Trust has to be earned, you’ll learn,
to find someone who is true to you.
Someone who has won, my son,
the respect you expect in return,
the love you live to give
and deserve to secure for sure –
So, you see, it must
be she that earns your trust.
