Time

Coolest

Cruelest

Mulish

Ghoulish

Striking with the coolest, cruelest blow

Time makes for a mulish, ghoulish beau

  • trying out a new (to me) form.  This a Tyburn for anyone interested in giving it a shot.

Tyburn

A six line poem consisting of 2, 2, 2, 2, 9, 9 syllables.

The first four lines rhyme and are all descriptive words. The last two lines rhyme and incorporate the first, second, third, and fourth lines as the 5th through 8th syllables.
