Attempt at haiku...60% fail.


Violent iron
appeased as bleak man transforms
for hard honor's sake

His sister is dead
But his other half lives still
His honor is her

A Kingslayer sits
On the Iron Throne, waiting
For Ned Stark, judgement.

Thank god the first day of poetry challenge was haiku! The only poetry form I (kind of) understand!

Text versions:

Flames hiss and crackle.
Steel parts flesh so easily.
"Burn them all," he said.


Bath water rises,
an enemy's fevered
secrets part the steam.

Oathkeeper
The maid faced the bear
With only her tourney sword
And one-handed knight.



“Help! The Kingslayer!”
Secrets told and truths revealed.
“My name is Jaime.”



He felt himself stir
At the sight of her blonde bush.
“Platonic” boner.

Erin, thank you for the platonic boner. I needed that Haiku for life.

So okay, I tried sonnets... iambs and I are no friends.

Anywho, I guess that kinda fits with the challenge:

And that's one I did in advance, doesn't relate to the challenge directly, but ugh, SONNET. You can go on cackling now, Quinn.

Sonnet attempt! Bear pitt-ery is a popular topic!


Old gods’ vision on unwaking mind weighs
New gods’ censure of sullied man condemns
Loathsome bill’s ill delight for lost limb pays
Desperate Ransom rapt in myth-bound gems

Warrior wakes to salvage furtive love
Maiden despairs the drub of vicious claw
Woman plain of face strong of heart does prove
Man faces beastly dangers beasts do draw

Spurréd by threat of fair love’s endless loss
He welcomes death to stifle beauty’s pain
Spared final fate by courage hid in dross
She clings to love’s gold form upon life’s gain

Love’s duty freed from former poison’s ire
Love’s duty ever bound to heart’s desire

An ode!

A sword he gave her, steel age-old beautiful and rare,
A steed he gave her, strong and tall to bear her form,
Her flaxen hair
Caressed by oncoming storm
She faces friend and foe encased in priceless blue,
She bears his mark on hilt and holy vow,
His honor scorned
By all but his forsworn
She wanders seeking maiden’s blessing on him now.

Damn, riddles are hard!

I only got a lame one:

I have a head, yet I have no mind of my own.
I don't have a voice, yet I can sing.
Knights fall down when they see my beauty.
Who am I?

Ooh, Justme, good one! I'm drawing a blank since I'm actually fairly terrible at riddles, but...the Wind?

The first line made me think "Mountain" and then "Dick" and then "none of those ever work." LOl :pirate:


Attempt:

I am most prized when dying
I become the lie of love

A gift I am, a slander
A beauty I am, a traitor

I wound her heart and hand
My kind never can she bear to view

I would've never gotten that riddle, Quinn.

No ballad, but with the help of a Vogon poetry generator and some JB words, here's this:

See, see the ugly sky
Marvel at its big red depths.
Tell me, Brienne do you
Wonder why Vargo Hoat ignores you?
Why its foobly stare
makes you feel horny.
I can tell you, it is
Worried by your jiffbumbalah facial growth
That looks like
A bread
What's more, it knows
Your swordhandpenis potting shed
Smells of goop.
Everything under the big ugly sky
Asks why, why do I even bother?
You only charm stumps.

A half-assed Ballad!


A wooded path the steed traversed,
The Lady Knight upon its back.
She rattled in her plated blue,
Her sword a comfort by her side,
And weep she did and felt thrice cursed.

A golden man she led through dark;
The Lion smirked in fullsome disbelief.
He did not know of vengeful spectre's vow,
How bound she was to lying oaths unkept,
And rended by command deathly and stark.

A plot she hatched to save her Lion's heart,
He followed blindly from her single phrase.
Her blood ran cold on thought of loss,
The choice of vow or choice of love,
And little time her plan left to impart.

A wooded path she left without a glance,
The Lady Knight her cloven vow as lead.
She whispered dangers yet unseen,
Her Lion's nature pledging yet to slay,
And steal away they did on second chance.
