No Sapphic Ode Sonnet

An ode, a tome of lofty praise,
a sonnet, thought in little song
and Sapphic lines have dactyl maze,
this form named wrong.

Oh how I strain to clarify
the technicalities of verse
with small success, but still I try.
It could be worse.

Iambic beat in fourteen lines
with rhyme we sing this sonnet form.
No ode or Sapphic tones define
this poem, my scorn.

Still crafted writing is the final goal,
reveal my mind and share my soul.

Well done Tink. It would take me months to attempt such a write. The themed challenges may trigger a response, but the form ones are too challenging for me.

Thanks Badge,  once a week a Form of the Week is challenged.   This invented form was clearly named by someone who didn't really understand the differences between forms, which kind of irks me.  Many people take on the challenge ignorant of the incorrect use of terms.  It just perpetuates ignorance.  Well, I've been called the poetry police because I insist on correct technical terms be used.  This poem is my rant. :ph34r:

Thanks Tony.  It was a challenge to write something using the invented form as the frame.   I had no subject but hey when desperate use what is right in front of you, the name of the form itself.
