A red bandana brought from Havana Lou wore She was Rosanna from south Savannah She swore They ate bananas in their pajamas Galore! Singing hosannas in the cabana next door Carlos Santana Hannah Montana do more

Grace was hosting DVerse Poets tonight and challenged us to write a Lai The Lai This form looks to be a very simple form comprising of a five syllabled couplet followed by a two syllable line. The number of lines in each stanza is fixed at nine and the couplets must rhyme with each other, as the two syllable lines must also rhyme. In English this line is probably the most difficult part of the poem. The stanza's rhyme pattern is... a. a. b. a. a. b. a. a. b. This is my first attempt at this!
