 Mini-Challenge for Sunday – To A Mouse…

Where we were asked to write Burns Stanza, or Standard Habbie: Robert Burns created a form whereas the first three lines rhyme with the fifth. The fourth and sixth lines become the second rhyming pair. The pattern is thus:

x x x x x x x a
x x x x x x x a
x x x x x x x a
x x x x x b
x x x x x x x a
x x x x x b

About zongrik

For those of you who do not know the handle "zongrik," that would be Bat-Ami Gordin. Most people call me "Tammy." Bat-Ami means "daughter of my nation" in Hebrew. It's a heavy name to carry around. I answer to either name. I also answer to "mama." Some Basic Things about me: Animal lover, mom, poet/writer, dramatic soprano, photographer, teacher/tutor, CERT/Technician and, oh yeah, aerospace engineer. I consider myself "The Astro-Poet." To learn more about the origins of the word "zongrik" see whats-a-zongrik?

  1. Love twinkling eyes… great job with the form.

  2. Does this not remind me of the some of the structure seen in Emily Dickinson poems?

    My only claim to fame.
