Lai Notes

Jezzie G

The Lai looks simple comprising a nine-line stanza over a five-syllable couplet and a two syllable-line. The couplets rhyme with each other and the single lines rhyme with each other.

There is no limit to the number of stanzas.

Rhyme scheme: aabaabaab ccdccdccd and so on.


Clay of Life by Ryter Roethicle

Dig your fingers in
Watch it spin and spin
Life’s clay
Shape it, press them in.
Feel the shape begin.
Each day
Watch! See it forming.
Then fire the kiln.
And pray.

See as the clay dries
Before your eyes
Your scheme
The shape you realise
Did you visualise
Or mean
None of us are wise
Do not eulogise
Your dream
