The Blue Almond

I submitted a fun little poem to Triond yesterday. It only took me a few minutes to write, and I must admit that I was rather pleased with myself after putting it out there.

I entitled the poem, The Blue Almond. It is, in essence, about the quest an unwilling knight must take on the whim of a young princess. I intended the piece to be a bit of a satire, and I think I did quite well. But please, don't allow me to toot my own horn without taking a moment to gauge my efforts. Click on the following link to read The Blue Almond.

As of this post, I've gotten a mere 8 views, but I've got high hopes for this cute little bugger.

Let me know what you think!

Quite amusing. Some of the words seem a bit strained, but that tends to happen with that rhyme scheme; overall it's a good piece.

Thanks. I agree, it isn't a defining piece of poetical triumph. It's just fun and quirky. Some of the rhymes do stretch a bit, but it only took me 10 minutes to write and it felt good. I'm okay with it not being a literary masterpiece. :)

This is hilarious! More people need to read it so they know what I mean when I ask them for a blue almond. ;-)
