Concrete Style Carved Beauty

Today’s form: concrete poetry  Today’s device: anaphora/epistrophe I took a previously posted poem and revamped it for this assignment

used an app ( to help me with my form. 😉

Carved Beauty of Mystic

From a medium of marble where your carved beauty and power are to be seen

Not knowing the evil and deceit that hide deep in between

Beauty is incomparable to others in the land
It’s wise to note that beauty and evil go hand in hand

Oh how I remember Iou made a beautiful wife
The groom was soon to find out,
Your love cuts like a knife
Was power and prestige your only claim to fame
Perhaps you knew love by no other name

By the look on your face
Your new fame didn’t make you happy
I’m sure in that particular time and space
That made you feel crappy

You eliminated love to rise above
But little to your knowledge you forgot about your cub
Who watched your actions in the name of love
Don’t look now, because here comes the rub

The cub now the point of being full-grown

This was the moment that she just could not wait

Little did she know she was going to be dealt a horrible fate

By the love of her very own

The moral of the story is simple and true

Be good to others and they shall be good to you 

You get what you give out of life and that’s a fact

She didn’t know her love would kill her like that

The above poem is about Semiramis, who was the queen of Assyria. Her story is below and can be found at Dallas Museum of Art
