Neighbour’s Party

Seventh assignment from Writing 201: Poetry

Day 7: Neighborhood, Ballad, Assonance

Neighbour’s Party

Traa.a. lalalalllaa…lalalaa

As my feet loved to moved from the beat

Of a loud sounds outside

Wondering what happened at the other side

Looking out the window

The table is on

The glass is ready

Galloons of native wine are coming

Come…come…. Come… come neighbours

Get ready for the party

Happy they are! Really!

Senior citizens forgot their back aches

Every time chachacha is playing

Their feet were so thirsty to follow the beat…

This is how our neighbours in every occasion

Having fun as if tomorrow never come

When they all drunk

They may dance a sway

Others may sing their favourite song

Others may sleep as if the street is so silent

If by lucky alcohol successfully went through his brain

His reasoning went drain

He then loves looking for his foe!

Tralalala..lalla…alalala..

Super hero’s moves are now live!

When his toes were slip

Tralalaa…lalla…lalallaa

Drunken super hero’s time to sleep!

Why is it so hard for me to spell out the word “neighbor? Until I finished writing this poem I keep on checking the suggested spelling because it always in red. 😀 Anyways, I had fun while making this piece. Did I bat the required requirements? Hmmnnn… 🙂

Checkout my daily poem:

Day 6: Facing Adversities

Day 5: A Frozen Heart

Day 4: Imperfect Perfection

Day 3: Perceiving Behind the Feather

Day 2: Life as a Gift

Day 1: Justice for a Chick

Terms introduced by Writing 102: Poetry.

Check Poetry Foundation for more poetic terms.

  1. Ballads- are dramatic, emotionally-charged poems that tell a story, often about bigger-than-life characters and situations.
  2. Assonance- is subtler than alliteration, but can have a profound cumulative effect on a poem, especially when the repeated sound resonates somehow with the topic you’re writing about.
  3. Chiasmus- is essentially a reversal, an inverted crossing (it got its name from the greek letter chi – X).
  4. Found poem – is composed of words and letters you’ve collected — randomly or not — from other sources, whether printed, handwritten, or digital, and then (re)arranged into something meaningful.
  5. Ode-is a laudatory poem celebrating a person, an object, a place, etc. In the past, odes followed strict formal requirements — like the (Greek) Pindaric ode or the (Latin) Horatian ode. These days (and for quite some time), odes can come in all forms and sizes — it’s the subject matter that tends to distinguish a poem as an ode.
  6. Metaphor-brings together two terms that aren’t normally connected, yet make sense once they are (its greek roots mean “to carry over”). Unlike its less subtle cousin, the simile, metaphors don’t need connectors like “as” and “like” to link the two things together. They just smash them into each other and hope for the best.
  7. Enjambment – It may sound like a mouthful. But what it describes is a really simple phenomenon: when a grammatical sentence stretches from one line of verse to the next.
  8. Limericks – are traditionally composed of five lines of verse. The traditional rhyming scheme of a limerick is a a b b a — the first two lines rhyme, then the next two, and the final verse rhymes with the first couplet.
  9. Prose poetryany piece of verse written using the normal typography of prose, while style maintaining elements of poetry, like rhythm, imagery, etc.
  10. Internal Rhyme – the poetic device on offer for your exploration today — should appeal to all poets. It adds a level of sonic complexity and playfulness without calling too much attention to itself the way end rhymes (i.e. rhymes appearing at the end of verses) do.
  11. Acrostic – A poem in which the first letter of each line spells out a word, name, or phrase when read vertically. See Lewis Carroll’s “A Boat beneath a Sunny Sky.”
  12. Simile – A comparison (see Metaphor) made with “as,” “like,” or “than.” In “A Red, Red Rose,”
  13. Haiku– A traditional Japanese form, now popular around the world. Normally (but not necessarily) composed of three lines of verse containing five, seven, and five syllables, respectively.
  14. Alliteration– The repetition of initial stressed, consonant sounds in a series of words within a phrase or verse line. Alliteration need not reuse all initial consonants; “pizza” and “place” alliterate. Example: “We saw the sea sound sing, we heard the salt sheet tell,” from Dylan Thomas’s “Lie Still, Sleep Becalmed.” Browse poems with alliteration.

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you enjoy.

Good night for now.

“Yesterday” is an accomplishment

“Now” is a gift

“Tomorrow” is an adventure

But still to be a gift soon

And become another accomplishment”
