A chapter in the book Pantoum Collection

All Hail, Pantoum!

by tfawcus

All hail, Pantoum, Malay malaise
Pan pipes entomb a dual sense
Tucked up within each other's phrase
With treasure shared beyond expense

Pan pipes entomb a dual sense
Lines fixed in one climb up a rung
With treasure shared beyond expense
A pantomime so richly sung

Lines fixed in one climb up a rung
As sense now slides across the verse
A pantomime so richly sung
Takes time and causes one to curse

As sense now slides across the verse
At last the tail engulfs the head
Takes time and causes one to curse
So here's an end. It's put to bed

At last the tail engulfs the head
Tucked up within each other's phrase
So here's an end. It's put to bed
All hail, Pantoum , Malay malaise

Earned A Seal Of Quality


If my poem has done its job I shouldn't need to explain the Pantoum verse form again here!
On the other hand, if not...
A pantoum is derived from a Malay verse form and has repeating lines throughout. The 2nd and 4th lines of each stanza are repeated as the 1st and 3rd lines of the next. Additionally, to complete the circularity, the 3rd and 1st lines of the poem become, respectively, the 2nd and 4th lines of the last stanza.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
