Four line poem:

Life As It Is Lived

by Mrs. KT


Ever fleeting as
dandelion fluff  ~
Ever defined by
mem’ry’s landscape


Four Line Poem contest entry


Contest requirements:
Write a four line poem that has a specific syllable count. The first line has one syllable, the second line has five syllables, the third line has five syllables, and the last line has nine syllables. The subject can be anything.

Please Note:
Readers will undoubtedly note that I wrote "memr'y" for memory. I have employed an elision.

An elision is the removal of an unstressed syllable, consonants, or letters from a word or phrase, for the purpose of decreasing the number of letters or syllables when mixing words together. The missing letter is replaced by an apostrophe. Generally, the middle or end letter or syllable is eliminated, or two words are blended together, and an apostrophe is inserted.

Pays one point and 2 member cents.
