I enjoy writing this contrapuntal style of poetry, the back and forth and the weaving of melodies. In this simple poem, I only had to tweak one transition. The real challenge, I find, is in the cleave form, in which the two separate poems should be very different in mood. Blending them to make one satisfying poem is tricky.
How Did It Go?
It took a while to get this one done and I’m not 100% happy with it. I’d like to have another go at this form when I get time. Perhaps something a little more subtle next time.
