Our Father

 

by Onyeani James

 

 

His eyes never blinking;

Beaming in glorious light.

His lips never drooling;

Till all be set aright.

Dwelling in grace unend;

The hearts of men to mend.

 

 

 

This is a personal genre of poetry. It is called ILU. It’s used particularly to express a thought or a feeling in six lines with varying rhyme schemes. In this piece, the first four lines are rhymed alternately while the last two are a rhyming couplet. The rhyme scheme used here is ABABCC, and each line is metered as well.

Feel free to drop your comments, I’ll love to hear from you.
