A Poem By Tamerah // 5/8/2010

Scattered to the four winds,
we were forewarned but forgot,
and we thought we’d forgo 
listening for once.
We couldn’t stay in the foreground,
for forces unforeseen,
we were forced to forfeit
all the plans we were forming.
Fortunately we were fortunate,
though the foreigners forbade us beforehand,
we formed the fortunes we foretold,
and they forgave us formally.
We forestalled the forecast,
But we couldn’t foresee the forest ending
And we were afforded no mercy.
First and foremost our foresight was clouded,
and for all we’d forsworn
we foresaw nothing,
and we forgot on whose forbearance
we got to form these foraged words.
A forcefully foreboding wind,
foreknown to all but us,
gave us but a foretaste
of the forged form of former trust.
For the fortress fell, formless,
and the forlorn forthwith died,
so we forwent further fortnights,
spent forwarding our lies,
and for just the one forenoon
we were forgiven all our crimes.

This was so cool! Never would have thought of that. And, as I have said before, there is something about your style of poetry that I really like.

Thank you! I have been trying to post more, and I think I've got it down to once a month rather than every couple of months, or every year. :)

And to Hannah, I posted a comment in response to you yesterday, but I didn't realize I wasn't signed in, so it has to be approved first. It should be popping up here eventually.

Very Clever... :)

This is really neat, I didn't realize how many words had those three letters in them. :)

 Tam,

  This is just so fun - I actually read it out loud just for the fun of feeling the words on my lips. :)
