Upon my street
Makes soggy feet
Winter’s task becomes travail
This is what you would call a “wet” snow. That is a photo of my mailbox. It makes getting the mail a very treacherous task, not to mention a sloppy one. Need waterproof boots or shoes for sure. My driveway has an incline, so great care in getting there is also a necessity.
This poem is a Whitney.
The Whitney is also known as an American Asian Poem. This is a syllabic form, created by Betty Ann Whitney. It has exactly seven lines.
Syllable Pattern: 3, 4, 3, 4, 3, 4, 7
No rhyme scheme is required, but is acceptable, if desired.
For this poem I did use a rhyme scheme of: ababccc.
