April’s final poetry month prompt is to write a minimalist poem and I have selected to write a Tyburn poem as it has a fairly compact structure. This is a six line poem consisting of 2, 2, 2, 2, 9, 9 syllables.
The first four lines rhyme and are all descriptive words. The last two lines rhyme and incorporate the first, second, third, and fourth lines as the 5th through 8th syllables.
When we truly listen frissons start
Altruistic missions glisten hearts
