Vers Beaucoup...

Mind’s Confusion
BLUE is created from the Dew on QUEUE
It is TRUE of a flower I LONG for is a SONG
WRONG is a cry of ONE who does RUN
For he has SHUN the BLUE that was in QUEUE

YELLOW is the suns HUE that touches YOU
Right on QUEUE with WARMTH and CHARM
Protects from HARM full of LOVE and JOY
From evil’s PLOY that comes to YOU for a VIEW

WHITE is the calm CLOUD that bowed so PROUD
Took LOUD anger that SCREAMED as you DREAMED
With tears that BEAMED into the NIGHT - turn BRIGHT
One’s PLIGHT will LIGHTEN as calm and hope HEIGHTEN

SIGHT has come into the NIGHT just RIGHT
For one is free - FRIGHT is GONE come this DAWN
Awakes with a YAWN life is WELL for a SPELL
HELL has DISAPPEARED takes dream that was FEARED

- Rhoda Galgiani 

Vers Beaucoup Poetry Form - Created by Curt Mongold - Name is French
for "many rhymes" - Each stanza consists of four lines with a rhyming word
scheme of a-a-a, a-b-b, b-c-c, c-d-d
Each rhyme can only use a MAXIMUM of three words - The fourth "a" rhyme
carried over to the second line causes enjambment and creates a strong internal
rhyming structure - Left justified - Rhyming words capitalized for clarity…rg
