Perfectly Poetical: (Mini) Epic

Welcome to Perfectly Poetical Tuesday (PerPoTues)!

This month's style: Epic - but I'm using the term (verrrry) loosely. We could even call these poems "mini-epics."

  1. Write a rhyming tale of bravery/adventure/etc. that's at least six lines.
  2. Post it on your blog with a link back here.
  3. Stop back by, link up and post a comment. (If you don't blog, you can post your whole poem in the comments.)
Next month's style: Quatrain
For our purposes, 4 lines that rhyme. (ABAB, AABB, AAAA - Check out Wikipedia for more information on rhyme scheme, but don't sweat the details. This is for fun!)

Mark your calendar! The next Perfectly Poetical Tuesday will be July 14. If you want an email reminder (and you didn't receive one this time around), just let me know!

In the meantime, what does your life's poem say?

(My mini-epic will be up later on today.)


  1. Yay! First one!


    Thanks so much for hosting, Stephanie. So good to indulge in some silly creativity!

  2. Hi all! I wanted to try posting my poem separately from the main PerPoTues entry this month. (Plus I needed a little more time!)

    My poem is up now: The Epic Battle of the Swimsuit!

  3. I wrote an epic! http://noteverstill.blogspot.com/2009/06/neverending-story.html

    Thanks so Megan for tweeting this!


What do you have to say about that?
