Terza Rima Day 16 Life

This Month Kat Myrman has suggested a new theme for the daily poem—the Terza Rima, writing one stanza each day.
A terza rima consists of stanzas of three lines (or tercets) usually in iambic pentameter. It follows an interlocking rhyming scheme, or chain rhyme. This is where the middle of each stanza rhymes with the first and last line of the following stanza. There is no set length to this form, as long as it follows

I shall be joining Kat Myrman and Jane Dougherty in this challenge.

Life… A Terza Rima,

It was not easy being a wife

So many compromises to play

Still the love, in those days,out weighed the strife.

~~~~~~~~~~
Installment 16 of Life for this month’s Terza Rima Daily Poem Challenge, one tercet at a time.

A Month With Yeats: Day16

This is part of Jane Dougherty of Jane Dougherty Writes alternative Challenge to NanoWritMo. A month with Yeats. 

Rules and Pingback Here 

Day 16’s quote is from ‘He  mourns the change that has come upon him and longs for the end of the world.’ Almost a poem in itself .

The quote. ‘Do you not hear me calling, white deer with no horns.’ W.B. Yeats

Where I live they are building houses by the hundreds. The deer are at a loss as to where the routes that are written into their consciousness have gone. It is so sad to see deer negotiating busy roads and housing estates. 

Though it is wonderful to come across them while walking the dog or looking out of the window, the fear in their eyes hurts.

I do not think that those incharge realise what they are doing. 

We  do not see.

The runs have all gone

Far too late we see the truth

You are so lost friend

They have stolen your byways

Now you run afraid and lost.

Today  is  Day 16 of Loveuary and  I  choose  Devotion for  my  prompt. Three Haiku

DEVOTION

His Devotion

He stood in  the rain

Outside her  window  to show

His true devotion

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Her Devotion

To show devotion

She wore  the  habit and  beads

She became his bride

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

I would die  for  you

Always devoted to  you

Why are  you not  true
