#MM Saturday Mix — Your love’s return


when quivered lines sigh stable
when gentle breeze bare stirs
when heart affirms its able
when I rest among the ferns

I’ll sing, recall your fable
as hawks fly o’er the trees
I’m bound to you, a cable
like blooms are bound to bees

forgot is “wrong,” the label
instead is love renewed
return to share our table
two old but altered views


The poem is in quatrain form.
Title the the name of a favorite song by Gordon Lightfoot.

Sarah is the host of Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie’s Saturday Mix.  Sarah says:
This week we are “writing away, and having a play, with rhyming words for you today” with Rhyme Time.

‘Rhyme Time’ focuses on the use of rhyme to build your writing piece. You will be given six rhyming words* and need to use all of them (but not limited to these) in your response, which should be a poetry form of your choice.

*Homophones can be used as alternatives to the challenge words.

Our rhyming words this week are:

  1. able
  2. label
  3. fable
  4. cable
  5. table
  6. stable
