Cinquain: Point of Honor

Deadly
Weapons combat
Brother against brother
Skillful nineteenth century men
Dueling.

Cinquain: Camelot

Torches
Locked chamber doors
Many-tower’d stronghold
A magnificent cathedral
Romance.

A poet, a pen and a smile
Reached out from the Emerald Isle;
Hatching hilarious rhymes—
Buoying up bittersweet times—
Teasing rimes with lighthearted style.

Whithersoever Tara wandered then,
Even seaside, she was followed by men.
But all stopped their pursuit,
When she took off her boot
And sniffed it over and over again.

A zippy, Mrs. Claus in round glasses
Shopped around for some sorghum molasses
She eyed the sweet stuff close-up
In a clear measuring cup
Like the elves taught her in cooking classes.

A blogger and a poet in a stew
Traded places to note the other’s view.
Said the blogger, “I’ll site it.“
“I’ll sight it.” Said the poet.
As they bantered on—the souper line grew.

Rhyme: The Amen

Holy one, God's only Son,
The Author of Salvation;
Slumbering as angels sing,
Little Lamb save our nation.
Teacher, Preacher, Messenger,
Chief Shepherd, Arm of the Lord;
Come quickly bring the good news
Use God's words like a sharp sword.
Eternal Bundle of Myrrh
Your name's like soothing ointment;
Believers whisper Jesus
And receive your healing treatment.
Prince of Life and Prince of Peace,
Wonderful Rose of Sharon;
Son of God and son of man,
Are titles we call God's Son.
Messiah, Savior, Priest, King,
You paid the price for our sin;
After all's been said and done,
We will call you 'The Amen.'

Rhyme: Close The Door

Remember the simple life
When students bowed heads to pray?
If asked why teachers answered,
'That's the American way! '
Brothers walked dirt roads to school,
Carried lunch in a brown bag.
Small right hands covered big hearts,
Pledged allegiance to our flag.
Parents helped with homework and
Taught their children right from wrong.
'God Bless America' was
Our countrymen's freedom song.
Sunday was a day of rest
Set aside for families.
Fried chicken and apple pie
Graced tables and men said please.
On Monday the school bell rang,
Calling the youngsters once more.
Schoolrooms bring back memories—
Come inside and close the door.
