Long-legged Shelli did roof inspections,|
noted conditions on top and suggested corrections.
She was a woman in a man’s engineering world;
but she had a sweet lover cause she was all girl.
She’d been happy with her loving man dear,
equal housing they shared for more than a year.
She came down to the office early one morning
to a dozen red roses there without warning
Tears filled her eyes, she cried so hard;
“Will you marry me?” it said on the card.
She went home that night with nary a word.
Poor man couldn’t believe he still hadn’t heard
He went out to get bags from the trunk of the car.
You may not believe this where ever you are;
A dozen balloons rose into the air!
In big white letters 'Yes! Yes! Yes!' was there.
In the Air Tonight

hosted by Bronze Dragon. This week’s form is the:
Narrative poetry is simply a poem that tells a story. This form
of writing contains all the elements of a good story with
clearly definable characters, a plotline, etc., but it does so
with all the elements of good poetry, such as attention to
rhyme, rhythm, and phonics. Narrative poetry contains a section
of rising action, a climax, and a resolution just as would a
story. Some examples of narrative poetry are the epic and the
ballad, but it is not limited to those forms alone, or to any
given form, so long as the content makes for a good story!
