Dear Prudence

Published October 1, 2012 by Libby

This week Simply Elfje will be showcasing the development of the Elfje form practised by JulesPaige who has been using the form to create longer poems. Any comments you wish to make about this additional form would be most welcome.

Jules tells me that this quint was written and posted at We Write Poems (see link below).

Dear Prudence

is nice,
listen take it all,
especially when it is
free –

‘Thank you’
walk away and
do what your heart

is compromise,
compassion, comprehension, contemplation
down the road less

ears –
there are
two, one mouth
listen twice as hard –

is earned;
right of way
is the gift given –

(An Elfje Quint) JP/davh
