A Quadrille

The challenge at d’Verse Poets Pub is to write a quadrille (a 44 word poem) using a form of the word breathe.  Here is my offering.


Ancestors whisper to me
to hear their cry.

Fight for their legacy,
a gift through ages.

Bringing country together,
liberty for all.

Stand proud and tall;
rights have been won.

Never to be stolen,
earned for all.

Breathe the freedoms
of my awakened soul.

  1. Very encouraging, Teresa. I’d much rather be gaining wisdom from these of the past instead of having them be turning over in their graves.
    The quadrille is interesting, it has a lot of freedom. Basically related to foursomes, this on you guys are doing is on word count.

  2. Ancestors whisper to me
    to hear their cry.

    One can’t help but the need to respond to hints ought to be given the due attention. Strike it when the iron is hot rather than being overtaken by events and regretting it!
