Tinker Posted May 30, 2009 Share Posted May 30, 2009 Hi everyone, As most of you are aware, I have been in the process for the last couple of years of completing the Verse Form and Glossary forums at this site. I work in spurts, more off than on, but I still have hundreds of verse forms to post and/or research. I am always on the hunt for new forms to add to the index and to this forum. Rumisong just sent me a link to a new verse form which I did not have in my index and which I have never heard of before. I so appreciate this kind of help. I have added it to the index with the link provided. Some day soon I will do a little more digging and see if I can expand on what is offered in this link, in the meantime anyone interested can just click on "Cleave Poetry" in the Verse Form Index and it will take you to the site rumisong provided. So if you run across something that you have not seen before let me know. I believe we have the most complete collection of verse forms in our index than any other site on the internet or in any one book that I have been able to find. I haven't written my interpretation of all of them yet but I keep plugging away and I have sources for everyone verse form named in the index at my disposal. I just have to get moving again and get the information written down and posted. By the way if you haven't checked out the Verse Form forum at this site because you don't want to be restricted to line length or rhyme etc, I think you will find that many Verse Forms do not have restrictive criteria other than in theme or focus which might serve as inspiration to you. There is a lot of history here which shows the evolution of writing and offers a challenge to elevate our skill level. Besides if we call ourselves poets, it only seems right that we have some knowledge of how the craft has developed throughout history. ~~Tink Quote ~~ © ~~ Poems by Judi Van Gorder ~~ For permission to use this work you can write to Tinker1111@icloud.com Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
