Secret – Weekly Writing Challenge #56



Hey, I have a secret to share
Really, a big scoop, I swear
There’s no need to have all the proofs
It might be like movie spoofs, without a care

It appears that we were misled
They have bended the truth instead
Somehow we’ll try to get even
All these tales that have been spun, have been spread*

* The Florette, created by Jan Turner, consists of two or more 4-line stanzas.

Rhyme scheme: a,a,b,a
Meter: 8,8,8,12
Fourth line requirement of internal (b) rhyme scheme, on syllable 8.

Like the outgrowing of a small flower, the forth line of each stanza is longer, and enwraps the previous lines. Line #4 requires an internal rhyme scheme that rhymes the eighth syllable with the end of line #3, and continues to add on four more syllables than the other lines so that the fourth line ends rhyming with lines #1 and #2.

  1. Love this Lady Lee. Written well. Reminds me of the theme song refrain from the show Pretty Little Liars: “Got a Secret can you keep it, swear this one you’ll save. Better lock it in your pocket, take this one to the grave. If I show you then I know you won’t tell what I say, cause two can keep a secret if one of them is dead.”
