Angel's Lullaby

(Image Source: http://www.oyegraphics.com)


Magic caresses love ethereal
Arterial world soothing
Angel's lullaby pleasing


This is my first attempt at writing an Englyn penfyr. This form of poetry consists of three lines, the first line is ten syllables, followed by two of seven syllables each. The last word in the first line must have more than one syllable, and it links to the first word in the second line, using rhyme, or alliteration or assonance. The last words in the second and third lines rhyme.


_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _a
a _ _ _ _ _ b
_ _ _ _ _ _ b

  10. I think following forms are difficult for me which is why I think I rarely attempt to follow any. I think you did a fantastic job with this form and I really do like the poem. The picture goes with it too. An Angels lullaby would be very pleasing. I wish I could hear them every night.

    Thanks for sharing your first try at this form with this weeks Angel Theme Thursday. It is very much appreciated.

    God bless.

  12. Very informative and educational but too much for my brain to conceive at this point in time. I am tired.. but this was very beautiful and the title it's self can not be ignored.. You are the master! There is nothing you can't accomplish! Always remember that..

  13. First time I hear of Englyn penfyr, interesting, thanks for sharing.
    Yours is lovely, very spiritual.
    I especially like your use of the adjectives ethereal and arterial to join heavens with earth.
    Wish I could hear an angel's lullaby, wow...
    :)
