    Ring Joyful

    Ring Joyful An angel called to Mary one day. "You will have a baby," she heard him say, Now not yet married was Mary - however The obedient girl just said, "Whatever." The Christmas Story by William Holmes A time, 2000 years ago a young girl, Mary, thought to be 15 or so, would skip and jump and danced to the joyful rhythm of the tinkling bells on her skirt. Making music with gentle sway meandering about her room and into her parent's walled yard to stargaze at night. Then she'd pray. An angel called to Mary one day. Being devout, she had no fear. No tocsin rang a warning sound within her immaculate heart. She saw the glory of his soul and simply listened with her own. She invited him in to stay With grace he accepted and bowed then entered to the soft ringing of the angelus. "My Lady,", "You will have a baby": she heard him say, What must have travelled through her mind? Her innocence was unblemished. Her love for her God unquestioned. Just how would her parents react? Her friends were sure to be surprised. She would not be thought to, never would others think she would give birth so young. Yet a joyful peal rang from within. They prayed together. No, not yet married was Mary - however, She was promised to a young man of good heart. She did not want to break it. Unsure of etiquette appropriate to inform him, she was assured he already knew and rejoiced. He'd not sever their bond, his commitment secure and he still loved and cherished her. In typical teen endeavor, The obedient girl just said, "Whatever." ~~Judi Van Gorder Notes: ▼
  2. Explore the Craft of Writing Poetry Spanish Verse Glosa or Glose, (to gloss or comment on) also called Retruécano (play on words) is a commentary or expansion on words usually written by another. This poetic tool or technique is used by many forms including free verse. However there are two specific forms , a formal fixed verse form and a stylized strophic verse that are referred to as "Glosa". A thematic statement known as la cabeza, (the head), mote (motto) or text, usually begins the poem and the poet then expands upon each line of that statement in the body of the poem. The mote is often a quote, written by someone other than the poet although it is perfectly permissible to write your own text. Sources I've found indicate the genre was introduced in late 14th, early 15th century Spain by the court poets. This form appears to have led to the development of the Vilancico. Note: In both frames credit should be given to the text, cabeza or mote source when it is written by another. It can be done by footnote or can be identified in the poem itself, to the right and just below the title, usually in small font The elements of the formal Glosa or Glose as fixed verse form are: written in five stanzas, a quatrain followed by four 10 line stanzas (Spanish 10 lines or less). The mote or text that opens the poem is usually a quatrain from another poem. It is often a redondilla. (Spanish) syllabic, 8 syllable lines or (English) metered, iambic pentameter. rhymed, (English rhyme in the 6th 9th and borrowed 10th line. Rhyme scheme ABCD xxxxxaxxaA xxxxxbxxbB xxxxxcxxcC xxxxxdxxdD. ABCD is the refrain established by the lines of the quatrain. x can either be unrhymed or rhymed at the discretion of the poet.) (Spanish A1B 1B2A2 or A1B 1A2B2 ababababA1 cdcdcdcdB1 ect.) or abbaabbaA1 cdcdcdcdB1 Ring Joyful The elements of the less formal Glosa or Glose as a stylized strophic verse are: accentual verse (in the rhythm of everyday speech). consisting of 2 parts: Opening statement, a line or a short stanza that states the theme of the poem, The body of the poem is most often strophic, with one strophe of any number of lines for each line of the opening text. The strophe explains or expands on that line and then incorporates the line within the strophe, most often at the end as a refrain. The number of strophes or stanzas is determined by the number of lines in the opening text. rhymed or unrhymed at the discretion of the poet. Chimes by Judi Van Gorder " Prove all things, hold fast that which is good." 1 Thessalonians 5:21 King James Version Test the clarity of the bell and take heed when the tocsin rings; it will always serve you well to study and prove all things in a world of trickery and deceit, the sound of truth is often misunderstood, its resonant tones must repeat, hold fast that which is good. (note: Poems written as a result of or response to a meditation on scripture or another poem could fall under the genre of lectio divina.) Treasured Island by Judi Van Gorder "For as this appalling ocean surrounds the verdant land, so in the soul of man there lies one insular Tahiti, full of peace and joy, but encompassed by all of the horrors of the half-lived life." ----- Herman Melville from: Moby Dick The rocky cliffs rise above the sea, like a great wall holding back the watery main. Nations vie to control small bits of earth still, the appalling ocean surrounds the verdant land, and erodes the soil 'til nothing's left but reef, like one who is stripped of all the frivolous trappings foolishly acquired in time, and then in the soul of man there lies one insular Tahiti, a secret place which first must be found then explored and once known, treasured above all else. It is the prize esteemed the elusive isle… full of peace and joy The journey there will be filled with choices. To risk the rifts can be its own reward, stay anchored in fear and you will be encompassed by all of the horrors of the half-lived life. A Double Glosa can be written in either the formal or informal frame of the Glosa. In the informal frame the lines of the mote are repeated as a refrain twice in each strophe. AB xxxxxAxA BxxxxB (the placement of the 1st refrain may be anywhere in the strophe the 2nd refrain is usually the last line.) In the formal frame the refrain is repeated twice within the stanza. It is not specified but I assume it can be in addition to the rhyme of the L6 or it can be a replacement for the rhyme in L6. xxxxAaxxaA or xxxxxAxxaA.
