Pensieve's Poetic License #3 - Terza Rima

Mid-month Every Month at PENSIEVE

What is Pensieve's Poetic License? A monthly meme designed to encourage EVERYONE to exercise their poetry gene. Everyone is born with one; sometimes you just need "permission" (or a kick in the behind) to use it.

Please click the button above for more information. This month we were given two themes: "Beginnings" in honor of the new year and "Favorite Snack Food" in honor of the upcoming Superbowl Sunday, the form: Terza Rima. For more information on what exactly this means you'll just have to head over to Pensieve's and check it out yourself, she explains it much better than I ever could.

Okay, so now that we've got all that business out of the way, let's get on with the poetry.


It comes in many shapes and sizes
and in unlimited varieties too
it can be plain or wear disguises
we're talking cream, cheddar or bleu
you eat it solid or melted, yum
oh the many things you can do
but wait, don't stop there's more to come
eat it alone, spread it on toast
and over a salad, just sprinkle some
Oooh, I am becoming quite engrossed
You really can do as you please
Certainly a snack I love the most
And you know I don't mean to tease
Of course you know I'm speaking of cheese.

Why OF COURSE we knew what you were talking about--you spelled "bleu" "wrong", unless you're talkin' about CHEESE.

Cute, reeeal cute! And you whipped that out in just a few minutes? Wowza...You need to do the 15 Words or Less poems, too. Now THOSE I write in just a few minutes, my terza rimas took a bit longer. Still, I've I'm bogged down with a poem, I move on. Sometimes I come back to 'em, sometimes I leave 'em be.

THANKS for joining do a great job with this stuff (guess that'swhy you have TWO blogs!).

Excellente! Yeah, in Spanish! :D

Karmyn R said...

Yeah for Cheese! your iambic pentameter was spot-on too!

min said...

I love cheese! I understand why it inspired you to write such a beautiful "Ode de le frommage".
I knew you were a good writer, but I didn't know you could do poetry!

thanks for this lovely tribute to cheesy terza rima's

Cheese. There's nothing better than cheese. Except perhaps enjoying a well-written poem while snacking on it.

Very nice.

Oh I love it. I love it....does it come with wine? If so, I'll be there.

another fantastic poem. I'm going home with my tail between my legs ... and delete mine and start all over. (Just kidding -- it's going to sit there and stink)
