NaPoWriMo Day 9 – The Gift

NaPoWriMo Day 9 – The Gift

Today’s prompt is to write in a specific form – the nonet! A nonet has nine lines. The first line has nine syllables, the second has eight, and so on until you get to the last line, which has just one syllable.

I wrote two nonets on the subject. I wasn’t sure which sounded better, so, I shared both, last evening. A big thanks to those who helped me decide which was better. I’m pasting the other one below the post as a reminder that I can depend on you to help me when I’m confused (or the comments on this post will leave me wondering in future what the deleted one was.)

My poem for today- The Gift

He told her she should value money 
So, she spent wisely and never 
indulged. Then, one day, she bought
herself a cashmere, with
money he left her -
she said, it was
his parting
gift, to 
her.

He told her she should value money 
So, she spent wisely and never

herself a cashmere, with 
the money he left
her; certain, he'd 
want for her 
to have
it.

  1. Both the poems are really good Smitha. But I found the second one more interesting
