Possibly my last lai of all.

I'm sorry to say
I can't write a lai,
old chum.
I'm happy that May
is fading away.
All done.
The things that I say
won't come the right way,
oh bum.

Oh, how I have struggled with the lai. DVerse can be cruel sometimes. (No, it’s not. It’s a lovely place to poem, get over there and do something better than this).

  1. This is well done. I hear you. DVerse has given many difficult prompts but I consider Lai to be among the most difficult ones. I have started several pieces and only got as far as the third line. THe limited number of syllables and strict rhyme scheme make a Lai so tough to write.
