O, Poetry …[February Contest] "Acrostic Rhyming Alliterisen"

O for picking poetry's fruit,
Permit not plush lyrics to mute
Overflow with the wondrous words
Enthralling each~ the singing birds
Tidbit with rhymes a twisted heart
Returned to right and fresh found start
Yodel yeah a truthful message

Last few words: 
This is a piece composed based on Dr. Udit Bhatia's form of poetry called "Rhyming Alliterisen" which usually consists of 7 lines, with 7 syllables each, and has one alliteration in every line. The rhyme scheme as follows: aabbccd. I however did some modifications to it. I added one more syllable to each line (so there are 8 sylables) I also introduced an extra level of challenge by stipulating the piece acrostic, so I gave it the name "Rhyming Alliterisen Acrostic" Hope you like the form and how it is excuted. Best regards

And thank you so much for your kind words.
I've been always interested in trying different forms of poetry, but I think this month's contest and inspired by sir Alan Jeeves's innovative form raised the challenge.
Appreciate your kind visit.

I can't thank you enough. Your innovative form raised the challenge in this month's contest indeed. And that line that you have agreed on with Ray makes me believe that one word sometimes makes a big difference, doesn't it?
Again, thank you for your continuous support.

You really strapped yourself in on this one :~)
You can have more than one entry you know.
Try removing all the rules involved in this highly structured poetry and post that, no matter how weird it seems.
Best of luck,
Mark

THE MARK
.
If you take the time to read a poem then take the time to let the author know you were there. Study it and form an opinion as well, even if it means going back to it more than once. That is basic critique, what Neopoet is all about.

Great to hear from you. I think I am obsessed with structured and rhyming poetry more than anything else.
I will be so happy if you give this form a shot, I am sure you'll do great.
Thank you

Acrostic are a pain in the rear. But to make them rhyme is even worse(I know because the few times I've done acrostic I made them rhyme as an extra challenge) But you went beyond by stipulating a certain syllable count....I bow

Great to hear from you and yes, it wasn't really easy but it's really worth the time and the effort I think.
Your visit means alot. Looking forward to reading your entry for this month.
Thank you so much.
