Nove Otto


by Just2Write

It’s close to dawn and I’m awake;
can’t wait for this new day to break.
The sky turns blue, and I feel bold
released from darkness of the night.
There is no thrill like sun’s first light
when day is new with joys untold;
and like a lark sings to the sky,  
I’ll never question how or why
rays pierce my heart with beams of gold.  

Nove Otto Poem contest entry


The Nove Otto was created by Scott J. Alcorn.

Each line is eight syllables, Three rhyming couplets but the unusual part is the 3rd, 6th and 9th lines should rhyme with each other. Any number of stanzas - but this contest is calling for only one.

The rhyme scheme is: aaCbbCddC
Meter: None specified. I have chosen Iambic Tetrameter.

My thanks to fellow Canadian, Trailblazer101 for the use of his photograph:
