NOTES: This was a homework assignment working with pentameter and tetrameter and the like. So, there are five segments of this homework that I liked and fixed up. I warn you now; for the sake of creativity and substance I totally flubbed the meter. Some of the lines will have that dum-dee-dum-dee-dum rhythm… others… not so much. I've also chopped up the lines. This is the last group of practice homework that I really enjoyed.


I dreamt of rain—gray slate colored type rain

Pouring, plunging, regretful tears still cold

On virgin cheeks and lips numbed by pain

Sort of rain—if the truthful truth be told.
