Honey sweet

by brenda bickers

"Let’s stroll along the promenade down by the open sea,
so we can reminisce a while of days that used to be.
Of times when we were young and gay, true love had set us free;
for I am still in heaven’s bliss that you are here with me.
Remembering the day, you asked when down on bended knee:
give me your hand my honeypot, I’ll be your honeybee."



Harrisham Rhyme created by Harrisham Minhas in India. It is a six-line rhyming stanza. In this form, the last letter of the first word of each line is the first letter of the first word of next line.

There is no restriction on the starting letter of the first line. There is a SPECIFIC RHYME SCHEME: ababab.

While there is no meter or specific syllable count per line, one wants lines to flow naturally. Perhaps make lines somewhat even in length give or take. Meter could be used. HOWEVER, meter & syllable count per line are AUTHOR'S CHOICE.
