SEP 16, poets' corner: poetic inventiveness

 


INVENTIVENESS -- palinkus


There's a poetry form I've invented

(When I use it I feel so contented), 

With three lines, each a home

To a brief palindrome. 

Most have praised it (a few have dissented).


Dr.G.H. and Giorgio Coniglio, 2022


(Ed. note:) Palinku verses of this type have continued to accumulate, and there are now more than 50 of them. You can easily view them all, and learn more about their derivation, if you  proceed  to our more encyclopedic blog "Edifying Nonsense". Click HERE.

Also, you can find lots of other verses on this daily blog under the rubric "Poets' Corner".  Most of them are in limerick format, and have been subjected to the editing process at OEDILF, the Online English Dictionary in Limerick Form. To access the others, type the phrase Poets Corner into the searchline on this blogpost (at the top of the righthand navigation column).
