Hello Ismael,
This was a fun poem to read. I read it as a way to encourage us all to write more poetry. I liked the different viewpoints and descriptions. Thanks for sharing! Nicely done.

Hello Ismael, Your poem is clever with the four rhyming lines in each verse and then the fifth one rhyming with the fifth in the other verses. I’m not a fan of end-line rhyme but recognise the skill needed to get it nailed. Well done.

This brought a smile to my face.
The first word drops …as in a mic drop?
Fun 😊

Ha ha Ismael, you have taken some poetic licence here just as our friend Dr Suess always did:) I loved it. Funny, quirky and different. I liked the way you set it out with four lines rhyming in each verse and then the fifth line rhyming with the end line of each verse – clever:)

On sunny mountain tops.
Up where the forest stops.
And jumps with mighty hops.
So here our story stops.
Ah, good, the first word drops!

This is almost a poem on its own:))

Well done and thanks for sharing.

You poem is so playful! A study in rhymes of rhyme and other things. I like how you have a double rhyme scheme, in the first four lines of each stanza and in the final line of each. Very clever.

Hi Ishmael – hope you are well! This is a fun piece, I especially liked the rhyme in the last line of each stanza! Well done!

I thought it was going to be a light hearted piece and yet you have tied some inspirational tones towards the end there. I laughed out aloud at “studious stude”.

Your rhymes are well chosen and fit the story. Enjoyed this!
