Hero

4 Comments

Your hero will come along
Your saviour bold and strong
Your answers all belong
Within your own theme song

Your reflection will appear
Your thoughts become clear
Your worries will disappear
You are your hero, my dear

Day Six: Hero(ine), Ballad, Epistrophe

Your prompt: hero(ine)
Today’s form: ballad
Today’s device: anaphora and epistrophe
Anaphora simply means the repetition of the same word (or cluster of words) at the beginning of multiple lines of verse in the same poem. Epistrophe is its counterpart: the repeated words appear at the end of lines.

  1. I’ve tried this style of writing before, but often find myself repeating out of order too much, definitely liking your approach though 🙂
