5th Englyn 1st draft

In darkened doorway he lay
unseen by all who pass his way
they the blind who will not see
unheard plea, he drifts away

This challenge has shifted from drafting and editing an englyn each day to just keeping the momentum going.


  1. Cornish Miners graves in some areas of South Australia have these unusual poems on them, and since my childhood I have always been intrigued by them. Next time I am in an area where they remain I will photgraph some headstones, and send to you.
    Very Interesting,


  2. I'd love to see some of these, Terry. This is a very old form of poetry and difficult to stay within the rhyme and syllable structure. I haven't done too well with these but I don't like to bail once I've started something just because the going gets tough.


For some reason I'm yet to fathom I'm unable to reply to comments left by others so thank you for dropping by and taking the time to read and comment. Merlene
