My Little Angel!
(Chant)
gurunAthan ramaNi

Come on, Cuckoos, sing her a song,
My little angel's out on the lawn!

Hey Mynah look, with your lovely eyes,
My little angel's out on the lawn!

Dear Roses, bloom but do not blush
My little angel's out on the lawn!

O Butterfly, show her your colors,
My little angel's out on the lawn!

Wait a little, O Rising Sun,
My little angel's out on the lawn!

Blow softly, gently, O Zephyr
My little angel's out on the lawn!

Just now, all is right with her world,
My little angel's out on the lawn!

I like the happy tone of the poem though I could not recognize the form. But it reminded me of forms like villanelle where a line repeats itself in every stanza. There is no strict meter either per line that I can perceive.

Thanks JoelJosel. I based my verse on Tinker's explanation of the Chant form below. I took liberty with the meter in the first line, and made the second line repeat itself.

gurunAthan, I like the simple (not simplistic!) movement and refrain of this bright poem.  A nice chant to capture a moment of delight and abandonment to innocence.

Thank You,
- David

A happy poem indeed! What is this poetic form? Is it your own?

Thank you, AbsentShadow. The poem is based on Tinker's explanation of the Chant form here:
