I Attempt Poetry

It's very, very late. But, it's Friday so it doesn't matter! I'm sorry I haven't posted in a few days... I've been busy. Today I was looking at some other writing blogs, and I found that a lot of people write poetry! I've never really attempted writing a poem... Unless you count old school-projects. I figured I'd try it out, and so,  I will write a poem to match a picture I found.(that I unfortunately cannot post due to technical difficulties)  Just pretend there's a photo of a doe in the snow below. (I did not mean to make that rhyme! No joke!) :P Anyway... Here we go!

Light foot steps,
Graceful movements,
Swift leaps,
Calm eyes,

Walking slowly,
Until she needs to run,
Then she is like a lightning bolt,
Flashing away,
But not without her fawn.

She protects her young,
With love as strong as any mother's,

She is beautiful in her ways,
She is a deer.

Okay... Tell me that wasn't awful. I know, it was. I'll keep practicing though! I'll try and write you a better poem after I practice a bit. Until then, what did you think of this one? Do you like to write poetry? If so, why? If not, why not? Please let me hear from you in the comments! Bye!

  1. I think it's a great start :) I like writing poetry because I can experiment with rhythm, and rhythm is something I really enjoy in writing. :)

  2. The poem was lovely, especially since I love deer! Also the name Tenley is so pretty and unique I think it would suit one of the Truly Me dolls I have on my wishlist :)

    1. Thank you so much! If you name a doll Tenley, I'd be super-duper happy! ;D

  3. I really like it! I could picture the deer crystal clear(did not mean to make that rhyme!)
    I'd be interested in seeing more of your poetry!
