Life as God of Plenty
Years have passed by, brought up a war baby
Always working, cleaning, god of plenty
No one taught me how to love, only work
It became demeaning, god of plenty
My life, husband, then came all the children
Always work, housecleaning, god of plenty
Not enough time for loving my family
I needed some healing, god of plenty
Still standing strong, that is my life story
Elsie, Scottish, meaning god of plenty
Written by Elsie Hagley
I asked Google – What does Elsie mean in English?
The name Elsie is a Scottish baby name.
In Scottish, the name Elsie is: meaning ‘my god is bountiful’, or ‘god of plenty.’.
the Ghazal Poem is:
- A decastich (10-line poem) written as five closed couplets (in its minimum length).
- The theme is love, particularly the pain of love.
- The lines are isosyllabic (all the same length).
- The couplets contain internal monorhyme and a refrain.
- Rhyme scheme: AA bA cA dA eA or aA bA cA dA eA
- The author’s name or pen name appears in the last line or at least a reference to it.
Summary: it is a syllable, internal rhymes, a refrain line, (five couplets – ten lines), a stand-alone, as a two-lined poem.
Author Note: The photo above was taken a couple of months ago, approximately three and a half years since my profile photo was taken. ACC cancer sure changed my appearance, I can smile, but not laugh it is painful, the right side of my face is numb, with much pain in my head. Life goes on, looks are not everything, it’s what’s in the heart that counts.
