Spotlight Poetry – An Attempt At Unrhymed Verse – A poem by Wendy Cope

The image depicts a painting titled Poemby the artist Jucivaldo Tavares. The work is a nabstract painting.  with vibrant colours, contrasts impermanent symbiotic effort. Broken up and irregular, with straight lines and curves delimiting the spaces filled for tones that stir up the observer to look for symmetry, which are present only in discrete appearances of geometric standard forms, surprising the set of lines that exhibit its rebellious proper life, trajectory freedom, but loads in itself the embryo of the imminent reorganization.The use of the relief in the picture  reminds one of the vibrant movement of youth, like running lights, but can also lead to the decrepitude of ageing in disfiguring wrinkling.The image supports the poem An Attempt At Unrhymed Verse written by the poet Wendy Cope.

An Attempt At Unrhymed Verse by Wendy Cope

People tell you all the time,
Poems do not have to rhyme.

It’s often better if they don’t

And I’m determined this one won’t.
Oh dear.

Never mind, I’ll start again.
Busy, busy with my pen…cil.
I can do it if I try–
Easy, peasy, pudding and gherkins.

Writing verse is so much fun,
Cheering as the summer weather,

Makes you feel alert and bright,
‘Specially when you get it more or less the way you want it.
