    Titania's Court - A Villanelle of the Night


    Titania ventured late alone into the night
    a new moon reigned above with clear solemnity
    where the good forest folke live, a land of delight

    As Titania passed clad in flowing sheer pure white
    silence imbued the wood deep in serenity
    Titania ventured late alone into the night

    Softly sighing, spellbound by the fairy so bright
    all bowed who beheld Titania in unity
    where the good forest folke live, a land of delight

    Titania resplendent in the twinkling starlight
    concerned about all the forest community
    Titania ventured late alone into the night

    The fairy Queen communed with all within her sight
    wielding justly to mete out of necessity
    where the good forest folke live, a land of delight

    Titania judged before the coming of twilight
    the Queen yet refulgent withal her lenity
    Titania ventured late alone into the night
    where the good forest folke live, a land of delight

    You are being kind. What I mostly miss is alarger vocabulary in English.

    Charming poem about Titania!

    Still experimenting with the generator(short Poem form). I chose three or four words. Now look what happened:

    The Sleepless and Resilient Tardigrade

    A Poem by Danik 2016

    Whose tardigrade is that? I think I know.
    Its owner is quite happy though.
    Full of joy like a vivid rainbow,
    I watch him laugh. I cry hello.

    He gives his tardigrade a shake,
    And laughs until his belly aches.
    The only other sound's the break,
    Of distant waves and birds awake.

    The tardigrade is sleepless, resilient and deep,
    But he has promises to keep,
    After cake and lots of sleep.
    Sweet dreams come to him cheap.

    He rises from his gentle bed,
    With thoughts of babies in his head,
    He eats his jam with lots of bread.
    Ready for the day ahead.

    With thanks to the poet, Robert Frost, for the underlying structure and 99,9 % of the vocabulary and 100% of the ideas and images.

    A spring poem!

    The feat of the day

    Curlicue

    An Acrostic by Danik 2016

    Cruising the sea, then

    Urban strolls.

    Roman watchtowers dominate

    Little bashful watchtowers

    Inside - interior circumferences.

    Concrete watchtowers look sternly.

    Unequal circumferences smile.

    Edwardian curlicues abound

    An acrostic ! Well done !


    The Sea - A Silly Free Verse Poem

    A vessel, however hard it tries,
    Will always contain candy corn.
    Does the vessel make you hungry?
    does it?

    A seabird, however hard it tries,
    Will always be floozy.
    Does the seabird make you shiver?
    does it?

    The blue-yellow marine song sings like a sea green thing
    Are you upset by how chromatic it is?
    Does it tear you apart to see the marine so yellow-blue bellied?

    I saw the the little fish of my village destroyed,
    How I mourned the fish.
    I'll always remember the trivial and small-minded fish
    ... the fish

    The Shiny and Round Pocket Watch

    Whose pocket watch is that?
    I know its owner has prolly forgat.
    Yet, full of joy like a bowl of green Jello !
    I watch him laugh and pet his cat.

    He searches for his pocket watch (beneath a book),
    And laughed until his belly shook.
    The only other sound's the break,
    Of cats careening his hearing mistook.

    The pocket watch is shiny, round and deep,
    But rarely has he appointments to keep,
    After meds and sometimes sleep.
    Sweet dreams come to him by counting sheep.

    He rises from his cat filled bed,
    With thoughts of poetry in his head,
    He watches telly and the web...
    (if the internet isn't dead)
    Fuzzily aware that there's a day ahead.

    Lol!Snif! Answer in brewing!

    A not so nonsensical favorite poem:

    The Donkey
    BY G. K. CHESTERTON

    When fishes flew and forests walked
    And figs grew upon thorn,
    Some moment when the moon was blood
    Then surely I was born.

    With monstrous head and sickening cry
    And ears like errant wings,
    The devil’s walking parody
    On all four-footed things.

    The tattered outlaw of the earth,
    Of ancient crooked will;
    Starve, scourge, deride me: I am dumb,
    I keep my secret still.

    Fools! For I also had my hour;
    One far fierce hour and sweet:
    There was a shout about my ears,
    And palms before my feet.

    Enjoyed: A poem befitting the season.

    A not so nonsense poem I'm still polishing up for a talk tomorrow:


    Dearest Savior

    Dearest Savior, I love to do thy will
    Thou knowest I do need thee in all ways
    O, help me ever to endure until
    Our Father's presence fills all my days.

    With a contrite spirit and broken heart
    To follow my Lord in sweet perfection.
    Thy perfect sacrifice, how great thou art !
    The sweet springtime of thy resurrection.

    My Savior seeks me to walk in His light
    Precepts based on faith, hope, and charity
    May I be reminded each day and night
    Seeking thy divine love with clarity

    Charity being the pure love of Christ.
    My love for Him abides and has sufficed

    tailor,
    Your poem has a beautiful flow and as far as I know about Religion the sentiments it expressed seem to be very fitting for s religious talk or service. Like you I am not so happy about the last word "sufficed". Viewed from the religious point of view, can ones love ever be sufficient? Maybe there is another better word and you are keeping it for the rhymes sake. But breaking the rhyme is also a form of calling special attention to a particular line.

    You have a good eye... I've gone through a number of revisions... agonizing and parsing. This is where I am right now (note the breaking of the sonnet form.... believe it or not I started with a very odd bit with the AI... lol):

    Dearest Savior

    My Savior seeks me to walk in His light -
    Precepts based on faith, hope, and charity.
    May I be reminded each day and night,
    Seeking thy divine love with clarity -

    Charity being the pure love of Christ,
    I ponder this eternal verity.

    With a contrite spirit and broken heart,
    Following my Lord with sweet affection,
    Thy perfect sacrifice, how great thou art !,
    The sweet wellspring of thy resurrection.

    Dearest Savior, I strive to do thy will,
    Thou knowest I need thee every hour.
    O, help me always to endure until,
    Our Father's presence fills me with His pow'r.
