No Surprise


No Surprise

(Modified Octogram)



When I look into her sweet eyes

There’s no surprise,

Because that’s when I realize

That looks for me.

Transported to a place of bliss,

A loving face that needs a kiss

Waiting all the time, patiently.

There’s no surprise!

To taste those lips and hear her sighs,

There’s no surprise!

A lasting gift, when love applies,

Given freely,

Responding to familiar bonds

In the sweetest ways she responds,

Given and offered totally,

There’s no surprise!

There’s Just Love.


Author Notes

For Valentines Day!

You can always read it in her eyes.

I wrote two Romances today. I put the other one in the contest. Hope I chose the right one.

This poem is a modified Octogram.

The Octogram is a style of poetry invented by Fanstorian Sally Yocom (S.Yocom). It consists of two stanzas of eight lines each, with a very specific syllable count and rhyme scheme.  

Syllable count is 84848884, repeat on second stanza.  

Rhyme scheme: 

aBabccbB ababddbB, where B represents same text repeated.  

No more than 16 lines

This one is modified because I changed the rhyme scheme to: aAabccbA aAabddbA where A represents the repeated text.
