Hide and Seek

Why play the endless game of hide and seek
The squirrel is observing, how long now
He knows he will be discovered shortly
this is a game, that is not unusual
It has been around for many centuries
Come out, show yourself, you are scaring him
Is this a terror, being discovered
Ready or not here I come, please just run
I’m not in the game of hide and seek now
In broad terms, success, saw you run away.

 

 Sonnetina Uno is:

  • A decastich (10-line poem) written in one single stanza.
  • It is unrhymed and written in iambic pentameter.
  • In other words, it is written in blank verse.

What is a blank verse?

A blank verse is unrhymed, but if that were all, then we would simply call it free verse.

What is the difference between blank verse and free verse? The difference is in the structure.

Free verse has virtually no structure. There is no rhyme, rhythm, specified line length, or any other stipulation. Free verse does, however, contain certain elements that make it poetic.
