Beguiled (Ya-Du)


Forswear this day;

fly away with

me! Playful smiles

will beguile time….

fertile moments most sublime…..


The Ya-Du is my nemesis; therefore I must attempt it again and again to master this very difficult poetry form!  How to say something meaningful with so many restrictive rules is good for me!  Below is the form written out in syllables, thanks to Memoirsofadragon.

O. O. O. a.

O. O. a. O

O. a. O. b

O. O. b. c.

O. b. O. O. O. O. O. O. c. [but can have 5, 7, 9 or 11]
