Vers Beaucoup x2

In Vers Beaucoup (Curt Mongold), each stanza has four lines with this rhyming structure (MAXIMUM of 3 words per rhyme):
a-a-a-
a-b-b-
b-c-c-
c-d-d

1. Pity Kitty

A little kitty, not so witty, plucked an itty
bitty plume. This birdie, not so nerdy,
rather sturdy, resented plucking. Whiskers tormented,
kitty repented. Story ended. Whiskers mended.

2. Snide Bride

There’s no room? Please don’t assume, ask the groom
who I presume wants his bride by his side,
and dry-eyed, so check again with your pen,
now, not when…oh, I’m late? What’s the date?

    That was really neat and informative!

  3. Very cool! I was happy there was no rhyming with plucking 🙂

    1. You mean the “f” word? Flummoxing? I didn’t know that was such a bad word.

  4. Funny Melanie…LOL Nice poem. Purrrrr.

    1. I thought of your chickens when I wrote this. 😉

  5. Wow you boggle my mind! Not that it takes a whole lot these days! But cats do love a challenge!

    1. They say curiosity got the cat…it must have been baited with catnip.

  6. I twisted my tongue a bit on the “Snide bride” 😀

    This is cool. I think I might try doing some as normally I write poetry that doesn’t rhyme. Keep it up – it’s great 🙂

    1. Haha just be careful while editing. I managed to edit out an entire section accidentally in “Pity Kitty”! 😀

  9. i couldn’t see the ‘c’ section in 1st poem but really loved the 2nd. sounds like a fun challenge 🙂

    1. Ahaha you’re absolutely right. I managed to edit it out! LOL.

    2. I made a quick fix. Cheap, but works for now. 😛

      1. I worried I was just being silly 😛 glad I could help 🙂

  10. How fun! Now I really want to try this game! Great job done…meow!

    1. I like trying out these new rhyming forms. They are fun! I still shake at the thought of writing non-rhymes though.

      1. Really, I actually prefer the non-rhymes myself…I’m trying to put some discipline in my life though.

        1. Lol I’ve been trying the rhymes too but they’re not nearly as good as Cubby’s lol

          1. She’s the greatest!

            1. That’s what the shirt I’d be wearing standing next to you would say. Of course, the arrows would have to pointing in both directions because I would have no idea where you would be standing!

              1. 🙂 yes goddesses are elusive creatures…

  11. Very interesting, I’ve actually never heard of this before. I learn new things everyday lol

    1. I thought that’s what school was for! 😛

      1. 🙂 Me too, until I learned that it was only about getting food grades on government tests

        1. Ah, you’re too smart for your own good. 😉

  12. What fun Cubby! Interesting form 🙂

    I love hearing of new forms. When i started my blog i literally only knew limericks and rhyming couplets. I sometimes enjoy the challenge of sticking to rules, may have a play with this at some point. Great job!

    1. For me, I think this as adventurous as I get. Free verse just doesn’t do it for me. Would love to see what you can do with this form! 🙂

  14. These are fun to read, thanks! 🙂

    1. So glad you found them fun! 🙂

  15. This is so fun! I, too, appreciate the way you introduce new rhyme forms 🙂

    1. It’s nice to switch things up now and then. 🙂
