Follow, coach, ride, here
Where ever you lead I'm sure to follow (a)
Paths unknown tend to be a bumpy ride (b)
Even so I'll take the chance, you're my coach (c)
In your steps I want to be, now and here (d)
Say it softly and nice, your words I'll hear (d)
Help me to love, encourage me and coach (c)
In my ear, after you will I follow (a)
Cooing and love-struck I'll happily ride (b)
Side by side, the two of us, we will ride (b)
Hugs and kisses with more still to follow (a)
When roll is called always I'll answer, "Here"! (d)
Every trip will be nice, first class or coach (c)
Can't lose me now, I'm sitting in your coach (c)
Right here, flowers in my heart, did you hear (d)
Two make a whole, you please enjoy your ride (b)
My wheels after yours, way they will follow (a)
Body and soul, coach they'll always follow (a)
Here I'll be, stuck with you for my big ride (b)

- Today, I am linking again with The Real Toads, this time with Marian in her Tuesday post, The Tuesday Platform: NaPoWriMo Eve . During the month of April a lot of poets and 'poem' writers like me write ONE POEM for/on EACH DAY OF THE MONTH. I don't think I will do that, I may start out. But sure to look for and read the efforts of the others.
- Saturday I linked with Björn Rudberg of The Real Toads, at Sunday Mini Challenge - not a sestina but close. Bjorn wanted us to write a 'near' sestina form poem, mostly shortened.
- Composing staying within it's rhyme scheme was a bit hard for me to follow. This is the required rhyme scheme: A - (Follow) B - (Ride) C - (Coach) D - (Here/hear); D - C - A - B; B - A - D - C; C - D - B - A; A - B. with the four words here in parenthesis being words which I chose for this poem. The four letters correspond to the position of each rhyme word.
- Oh yes, the meaning and/or context of each of four words are supposed to be different for each line.
