I used to write a lot of verse. Originally I tried some serious verse, but I decided I liked light verse most, and concentrated on that.
Here are some categories:
Burlesques. These are sometimes called parodies, but they are an original poem twisted to make a different subject.
Poems about teaching.
Poems about tennis.
Poems referring to comics.
A poem about photography.
A poem about golf. (Actually one of the others is about golf, too. But it's a surprise ending.)
Some poems have no category. they are just (I hope) nonsense.
There is A Rational Argument, The Quest for the Crumbly Bird,one about the fairies in my garden, some limericks, a rock song, and a (not so good) one about Burglar Bob.
Here are two sonnets. I used to enjoy writing in this form, and wrote many. Here is another, which I am fond of.
This is about the unwelcome approach of a vampire, and this one has become dated by modern supermarket technology.
I used to attempt more serious poetry, and I may add some of them later.
Just to see if anyone has found me..
