For ABC Wednesday, - which incidentally was my last post as well - this time around, I am exploring poetic forms and as I looked for forms beginning with the letter B, I discovered many wonderful ones - including the ballade (this is one I am saving for later!), the bio (sounds interesting), and the bop (which I used this time) among other interesting forms.
The bop is a fairly new form and has three stanzas in its original version, each followed by a repeating refrain. The first stanza describes a problem, the second one expands or explores the problem further, while the third either describes the solution or the failed attempt to solve the problem. So here is my attempt on this form based on a recent, real-life (true story this) problem I faced. This also goes towards Open Link Night at dVerse.
Yet another book I discovered while looking for books for the reading challenges, The Goose Girl is interesting reading so far. Here are the excerpts for Book Beginnings at Rose City Reader and Friday 56 at Freda's Voice
The Goose Girl (The Books of Bayern #1)
by Shannon Hale
She was born Anidori-Kiladra Talianna Isilee, Crown Princess of Kildenree, and she did not open her eyes for three days.
Interesting, don't you think?

Who is Ungolad? I am yet to reach that point, but curious to find out now :)
