Ode to Grandchildren: A Clogyrnach

Grandchildren bring us such joy,

As we give them so many toys,

We give them free rein,

And we don’t disdain

Their complaints.

We enjoy.

Written for the Saturday Mix Lucky Dip from Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie, a poem called a clogyrnach, a Welsh type of poetry. I though I would try it.

Clogyrnach

Besides being another fun form to say, clogyrnach is also a fun poem to write. This Welsh poetic form is typically a six-line syllabic stanza with an ab rhyme scheme:

Line 1: 8 syllables with an a rhyme
Line 2: 8 syllables with an a rhyme
Line 3: 5 syllables with a b rhyme
Line 4: 5 syllables with a b rhyme
Line 5: 3 syllables with a b rhyme
Line 6: 3 syllables with an a rhyme

  1. What a cutie! I have to set some limits though as the other set of grands and Mom like to do the spoiling. I spoil to in my own way. But put my foot down on tantrums and whining! 🙂
