When I am with you, the only place I want to be is closer. ~Author Unknown
I know I’m only just a toad
And not the frog that maidens kiss.
Aware I tote a heavy load
When looking for my special miss.
I’m not cuddly and then there’s this:
I’m plain as you can surely see.
Still, where’s a toad to find his bliss
If no one wants to embrace me?
Note: This poetic form is called Huitain. It’s my first try at this French form with 8 lines (per poem or stanza), and 8-10 syllables per line (consistent within the poem) in a rhyming scheme of ababbcbc.
