What is a 21 lined poem called?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

its called a sonnet. i found this example online.

The white clouds, in black theme;

Hidden daylight on the Eastern earth,

For Great Poets a dreadful dearth,

For the poetic vegetation to take birth ;

The spotted moon shining upon its seam-

Without vitality, fragile against the agile clouds,

Heading towards it to spread the shroud,

No star in the scenery, no men to cry aloud;

Where's the smile, where's the gleam?

Where's the hope where's the dream?

The billows will fall as water vapours

Upon the wish of the Lord!

If not poetry will form itself in the dark-

Fighting to shape its form.

The white clouds in the black theme ;

Perhaps the fault of the painter...

Colors spreading toward the subject tower;

A new shade to be brushed

To save it from being crushed;

Or a few drops upon the face with a pull on the edges will form-

The spotted moon, shining upon its seam.

Im sorry it is not a sonnet because a sonnet always has 14 lines and is usualy about love, it also has a set rhyme scheme

Who have the poem the moth's plea written by Elizabeth Jennings?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The Moth's Plea, by Elizabeth Jennings. I am a disappointment And much worse. You hear a flutter, you expect a brilliance of wings, Colours dancing, a bright Flutter, but then you see A brown, bedraggled creature With a shamefaced, unclean look Darting upon your curtains and clothes, Fighting against the light. I hate myself. It's no wonder you hate me. I meddle among your things, I make a meal out of almost any cloth, I hide in cupboards and scare Any who catch me unaware. I am your enemy - the moth. You try to keep me away But I'm wily and when I do Manage to hide, you chase me, beat me, put Horrible-smelling balls to poison me. Have you ever though what it's like to be A parasite, Someone who gives you a fright, Who envies the rainbow colours of the bright Butterflies who hover round flowers all day? O please believe that I do understand how it fells To be awake in and be afraid of the night.

What is the meaning of the poem the Flattered Flying Fish?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Read the poem, and imagine that it's a man speaking to a beautiful woman. The poem is a warning not to be vain in your beauty. It is also an encouragement to be aware and wary of flatters/sharks, who might seduce us to heartache or our deaths by telling us what we want to hear.

Said the shark to the flying fish over the phone

"Will you meet me tonight, I'm dining alone.

I've ordered a nice little dinner for two

so come as you are in your shimmering blue.

Said the flying fish fancy remembering me

in the dress that I wore at the porpoises tea.

How could I forget said the shark in his guile,

I'll meet you at eight and rang off with a smile.

So she powdered her nose and tidied her fins

and was off with the flip of her luminous wings.

O pretty one lovely one light hearted and vain,

the moon will not shine on your beauty again.

How do you say poem?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The way I know how to say a poem is by reading how many syllables it has on each line. I have a pet called lilly-soe I have a pet called li-lly-soe =8 syllables You may be asking about the pronunciation of the word. It is a two-syllable word pronounced something like this following. PO-em, where the 'e' is a neutral unstressed vowel sound. It is similar to the 'a' in abut. I will sometimes make the e sound more like 'bet', but this is just because I like the sound. It is more correct to give it the neutral unstressed sound as described above.
