 The Clown is Back!!!
But first, an awesome poem
      Good Morning – Midnight –
      I'm coming Home –
      Day – got tired of Me –
      How could I – of Him?

      Sunshine was a sweet place –
      I liked to stay –
      But Morn – didn't want me – now –
      So – Goodnight – Day!

      I can look – can't I –
      When the East is Red?
      The Hills – have a way – then –
      That puts the Heart – abroad –

      You – are not so fair – Midnight –
      I chose – Day –
      But – please take a little Girl –
      He turned away!
       Exact Rhyme
This one’s simple!

With Blue—uncertain stumbling Buzz—
Between the light—and ME—
And then the Windows failed—and then
I could not see to SEE—
              Slant Rhyme
 Not so fast, people who think you know how to
                     rhyme!

  Slant rhyme: The final consonant sounds are
                     similar!

I heard a fly buzz—when I died—
The Stillness in the Room
Was like the Stillness in the Air—
Between the Heaves of Storm—
          Alliteration
Repeating CONSONANT SOUNDS (usually
  at the beginning of words).

Love, by Memorial Mold
                        ***
And they will differ--if they do--
As Syllable from Sound
        Enjambment
  Continuing one sentence or sentiment
   across two or more lines of poetry

The brain, within its Groove
Runs evenly—and true—
+++
I measure every Grief I meet
With narrow, probing Eyes;
               Imagery
Uses images and sensory description (sight, smell,
      touch, sound, taste) familiar to the reader.

A Murmur in the Trees – to note –
Not loud enough – for Wind –
A Star – not far enough to seek –
Nor near enough – to find –
       Personification
To give human traits to nonhuman or abstract things.

They dropped like Flakes –
They dropped like Stars –
Like Petals from a Rose –
When suddenly across the June
A wind with fingers – goes –
+++
My Brain -- begun to laugh –
I mumbled -- like a fool –
And tho' 'tis Years ago -- that Day –
My Brain keeps giggling – still.
