OCTPOWRIMO – POEMS – DAY # 16 – IF WE LIVED IN THE WOODSIMG_20150928_151453

Today’s suggested poetry form was the Paradelle. I was hoping for something easier, and this one has so many rules and complicated structures, I just can’t manage it today. It does look interesting and fun to do, so will try it another day. 🙂

For today, though, I am posting the very same poem I posted for OctPoWriMo last year… 2014. I wrote it on December 29, 2006. I don’t know what form it is, I just made it up. Maybe it’s just free verse, with some rhymes. 😉

IF WE LIVED IN THE WOODS

If we lived in the woods,

What would we do?

Watch out for wolves,

And practice “Hoo-Doo”.

If we lived in the woods,

It would never be dull.

We would pick mushrooms and

Light up the Skull.

If we lived in the woods,

We would not have a phone.

We could bake a cake, and

Visit the Crone.

If we lived in the woods,

We would have to be focused.

We’d have to watch out for

Bats and the Locusts.

If we lived in the woods,

We’d light a candle.

It would never be too much

To Handle.

If we lived in the woods,

We’d sit and converse,

With the flora and fauna, and

Things of the Earth.

If we lived in the woods,

We’d chant and invoke,

Spirits of those of whom

Time Never Spoke.

If we lived in the woods,

We’d never be sad.

The rest of the world will

Call us Mad.

If we lived in the woods,

We’d play ‘neath the pines.

We’d make our peace with the

Spooks and the Signs.

If we lived in the woods,

We would howl at the Moon,

And dance in it’s light

From August till June.

If we lived in the woods…

If we lived in the woods…
