And when the muse hits, you just gotta let it out!

Vers Libre (free verse) is always a good starting point to at least get it down. But part of a poem's ultimate effectiveness is the form and structure chosen.

While you don't have to make every poem into 'Roses are Red; Violets are Blue', choosing the right form is as important as choosing the right word.

These words are crying out for a more structured format, and I would suggest going onto a place like poetry dot com and looking up the requirements for things like a sonnet (although a crusty fellow like Bones would most likely rather die by drowning in a vat of honey than write a sonnet to his love), and picking the form that leaps out at you with the words you've got.

With the right format, this drabble can really sing! (Heh, I knew being captain of the Western Mountains Poetry Team would come in handy sometimes!)

Love Missy/Mommy
