Author Notes

This bike was spotted at a car show that I attended in August, 2012. Finally got around to writing a poem for this photograph.

This poem is a modified Tyburn.

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. 

Syllable Count  line 1 –  2 syllables 

line 2 – 2 syllables 

line 3 – 2 syllables 

line 4 – 2 syllables 

line 5 –  9 syllables 

line 6 –  9 syllables  

The reason this is called a “modified” Tyburn is because I didn’t follow the syllable 5th through 8th syllable requirement, but rather incorporated lines 1 to 4 within both line 5 and 6. Done intentionally and so noted.

This photo was taken by the author himself.
