Cherished Valentine (Alouette)

by Meena Krish   Feb 14, 2017

Although we are far
thoughts of you like stars
shine never ceasing to end,
among time it stays
today and always
one who remains to defend;
In my heart you are
not just a fixed star
but a gift in life god send,
with you my love stays
today and always
my cherished valentine friend!

The Alouette, created by Jan Turner, consists of
two or more stanzas of 6 lines each, with the following
set rules:
Meter: 5, 5, 7, 5, 5, 7
Rhyme Scheme: a, a, b, c, c, b

    Very clean cut! There are so much detals and expertise in writing this poem that do not come to the eyes, making it so easy and wonderful to read.

    Meena this is wonderful, I've heard of this form although have never tried it.

    Sometimes writing in forms ( although i love it) can be hard to do as the piece can sometimes sound forced due to the restraints imposed by the rules, here is far from the case, your poem flows nicely within the form and your word choice is great!

    Great Job

    Your knowledge and execution of formed poetry really is marvellous; I have learned so much and had my interest piqued on numerous occasions by your writes.
    This is lovely and was a pleasure to read.

    I hope you are well,
