Thank you Catherine at Reading to the Core for hosting Poetry Friday.
Last week, I wrote a septercet in response to a challenge by Michelle at Today’s Little Ditty.
A septercet invented by Jane Yolen is comprised of verses.
Each one (as many verses as you want) needs to have three lines, each with seven syllables. It can be rhymed or not.
early mornings crisp and cool
smoke curls rising from chimneys
fog gives way to noon day sun
orange pumpkins on the vines
round globes scattered in the field
flocks of geese wing their way south
children running on the path
with the crunch of fallen leaves
autumn is whispering here
