Impala

 

Oh lady,

Beautiful lady

Ebony black

Lady of class

House on four wheels

Body of steel

Asphalt goddess

Sexiness gratis

 

pastedGraphic_1.pdf

 

Oh Lady,

Powerful Lady

Three Twenty Seven

Four Barrel Engine

Moving so quickly

Cruise at one thirty

Fuel injection

Owned competition

 

pastedGraphic_2.pdf



Oh Lady,

Graceful Lady

You roar

You purr

You sing

You soar

Dividing the night

Uniting our fight

 

pastedGraphic_4.pdf

 

Oh Lady,

Elegant Lady

Sixty Seven

Auto perfection

Hugging the turns

Distances burned

Polish and chrome

Winchester home

 

pastedGraphic_5.pdf

 

Oh Lady,

Faithful Lady

Our father’s gift

(whom we still miss)

Heads laid to rest

Weapons in chest

Forever we three,

I, he and thee.

I didn't know you were a poet. This is wonderful hun.

My two favourite verses are the last two.

Now I got a question for you sweety. Why haven't we seen anything like this before? Will need more of it.

Henceforth thou shalt be named 'the beloved poet', dear inspired lady! I told you... ;-) This is a most amazing, beautiful, lovely and loving ode to our 'baby'. And it's one of those articles I will print out to keep...

Wonderful. Feel free to allow inspiration to strike again, ((((Yvonne)))). :D, Jas

Ahhh Yvonne
Thou art a poet
And we did not know it!
Actually that`s a lie as I knew you could write and I am so pleased you decided to share your talents with the class.
I loved this. You had to write about your passion, that beautiful car, and I also noted the `Daddy` reference in there of course. ;-)
You do realise we now expect more?
How about a poem for every character?
Congratulations on this, Love Ju

You summed up my feelings for our "baby" perfectly. It was definitely poetry for the "soul"!

Thank you so much!

Hmmm (taking out my little red pen and casting a teachers eye over it)

Interesting style, good rhyme and rhythm, nice personification , fantastic imagery, good use of assonance, relevant topic, pictures in a poem? Well, it's not typical but it's certainly innovative and very effective....

Yes, I'll give this one an A. Keep it up!

Isn't this just great, Yvonne? Your first post on our site and it's being received so beautifully. I'm so proud of you (and I mean that in a loving, totally non-strange way ;-)). Don't hide those talents.
:D, Jas

@Yirabah
Well, because a few rhyming stanzas does not a poet make. A lost Muse gave me a passing late night whack. I’ll set a trap in hope of ambush, but not sure what I’ll catch.

@Junkerin
Happy to oblige.

@Jasminka
Thou most certainly shalt not! Unless, of course, that title comes with mounds of chocolate. Thank you for all of your encouragement. And as I said, the Muse is being Hunted in the hopes of another thump on my head.
Hm, something backwards about this.
(Oh, and you weirdo you.) ;-)


@Julie
Of course Daddy had to make an appearance! Smuggling in the John lovin.
For every character? Really? *checks Muse trap* Yaa, about that…

@dmakdavis
You are quite welcome! She is lovable isn’t she?

@Karen
Glad you enjoyed.

@Jeannine
Aww shucks, t’was nothing.

@BagginsDMV
Thanks! Now don’t go spending it all in one place.

@Bevie
Really? Thanks!
Screw the trap, I’m getting the salt gun.

@Tim the Enchanter
Oh Yay! I get an A! What fun! Can I get a smiley sticker with that Teacher?

@Dany
Little girl? Rare for me to be accused of that!
:P The Impala is photogenic though. Goodness she a hottie!

@Leslie92708
Thanks ever so much!
