Ronovan Décima Poetry Challenge #17
“Prize” In D rhyme line
Significance of D Rhyme Line
What can be said about Ronovan placing “Prize” in the D rhyme line? – Apparently a lot!
In summation word will stand alone,
Outcome of facts obtained before.
Its significance hard to ignore
In word play it’s hard to dethrone!
In rhyming scheme it is well known,
It’s not the first, second, or third,
An accumulation what’s occurred.
Now we don’t want to rhapsodize,
It is time to award the prize,
To say more would just be absurd.
