Tulips bathed in dew
greet the day. How true –
bring us ever new
gifts to see us through
days. Hope sings no blues.
Despair does eschew
My attempt at Lai for DVerse’s Poetics Prompt – More Lai and Lai Nouveau. Ah! What a difficult and tricky form.

I like how mornings bring us gifts to help us through the day.
Hi Imelda. I never heard of the Lai poetry form before. What is its structure?
A Lai poetry is a 9-line poem with, essentially, 3 stanzas. The first two lines of each stanza have 5 syllables and should have the same rhyming pattern. All six should rhyme. The third line of each stanza has 2 syllables, and rhymes with the other two. So, the rhyming pattern of the whole poem goes like this: aab aab aab.
Thanks for reading. Have a great week and best regards. 😊
