I am saddened by this news as I remember when Lily was born and everyone in Portland got the opportunity to vote on a name for her. I voted for the name Lily and was so happy it was chosen for her. It fit her perfectly. She was so sweet, lively, joyful and happy. She would have been 6 years old today 😪
( I wrote this poem with my mom in mind as 18 years ago today she left this earth and went to heaven. She was 85 years old and I like to imagine that today she is in restored health and dancing on air with angels, as she always loved to dance when here on earth.)
(This is my first time writing this Form called:
Con-Verse, created by Connie Marcum Wong, which consists of three or more 2-line rhyming stanzas (couplets). The meter of this form is in syllabic verse.
Rhyme scheme: aa,bb,cc,dd,ee
(Syllabic verse only counts the number of syllables in a line.)
(This form consists of three or more couplets which ascend by one syllable up to and until you reach a syllabic count of eleven which would contain ten lines.
This process may be repeated for a longer verse. If repeated, you must begin your first couplet with the syllabic count of seven again and continue from there.)
