      Registration -- to join PMO ***UPDATED INSTRUCTIONS***   03/14/2017

      Automatic registration has been disabled. If you would like to join the Poetry Magnum Opus online community, use the "Contact Us" link at the bottom of this page and follow these instructions: 1. Check your email (including your spam folder) in a timely fashion for a reply. 2. After you receive a reply, use the "Sign Up" link at the top right corner of the page to create your account. Do this fast. I've lost my patience with people who use the "Contact Us" link to express interest in joining and then don't bother to check their email for a reply and don't bother to join after registration has been enabled. The queue fills up fast with spammers, and I have to spend my time sifting through the rubbish to delete them. The window of opportunity for joining will be short. I will not have my time wasted. If you don't check your email and you don't bother registering promptly, you will find that registration has been disabled and your future requests to join may go ignored. /s/ Tony ___________________ [Registration will only be enabled for a short while from the time your message is received, so please check your email for a reply and register within 12 hours of using the "Contact Us" link. (Be sure to check your spam folder if you don't see a reply to your message.)]

      Blogs   05/01/2017

      Blogs are now accessible to Guests. Guests may read and reply to blog entries. We'll see how this works out. If Guest participation becomes troublesome, I'll disable Guest access. Members are encouraged to make use of the PMO Members' Promotional Blog to promote their published works. Simply add your latest entry to the blog. Include relevant information (your name or screen name, poem title, periodical name, hyperlink to the site where published, etc). If you have a lot of them and feel you need your own blog, let me know, and I will try to accommodate you. Members are encouraged to continue also posting their promotional topics in the Promotions forum on the board itself which is better suited for archiving promotions.

Explore the Craft of Writing Poetry 
Irish Verse

The Casbiardne (koss búyer-dne) is bruilingeacht, a modified dán díreach, an ancient which uses consonant rhyme and cross internal rhyme.

The elements of the Casbairdne are:

  1. written in any number of quatrains,
  2. syllabic each line has 7 syllables.
  3. composed with L2 and L4 end rhyme and the end words of L1 and L3 consonate with the rhyme of L2 and L4
  4. often written with at least two internal cross rhymes in each couplet. (the 1st couplet near rhyme OK)
  5. composed with 2 words alliterated in each line.
  6. written with the final syllable of L4 alliterates with the preceding stressed word.
  7. written with the defining features of most Celtic poems, cywddydd (harmony of sound) and dunadh (ending the poem with the same word, phrase or line with which the poem began) Irish Verse Forms

    capital = true rhyme / lower case = near rhyme / italics = consonant rhyme

    Laughing in Fall Colors by Judi Van Gorder

    Tall and golden stalks of wheat,
    wet meadow painted for fall,
    squall of autumn Earth whirls wit,
    fae fit for a season's scrawl.
