“My Mother wrote this piece in 1983. Here we are in 2020, dealing with the same issues. THERE MUST BE CHANGE! It’s not enough to march & protest.

🌹✍🏾”Sometimes You Have To Stop” ~ By, Maxwanette A Poetess✍🏾🌹

Life can throw us some crazy curveballs or even take us down a path that we weren’t ready for. It’s wise to take a moment, before getting overwhelmed, to breathe & simply regroup. It helps, restrengthens & allows one to refocus & even come up with better ideas to continue.

This piece reflects that.

🌹✍🏾What Is Narrative Poetry?✍🏾🌹

So, have you ever heard of Narrative Poetry? It’s basically a poem that tells a story. But there’s a little more to it than that…

Narrative Poetry

Narrative poetry is a form of poetry that tells a story, often making the voices of a narrator and characters as well; the entire story is usually written in metered verse. Narrative poems do not need rhyme. The poems that make up this genre may be short or long, and the story it relates to may be complex. It is normally dramatic, with objectives, diverse and meter.[1] Narrative poems include epics, ballads, idylls, and lays.

Some narrative poetry takes the form of a novel in verse. An example of this is The Ring and the Book by Robert Browning. In the terms of narrative poetry, a romance is a narrative poem that tells a story of chivalry. Examples include the Romance of the Rose or Tennyson’s Idylls of the King. Although those examples use medieval and Arthurian materials, romances may also tell stories from classical mythology.

Shorter narrative poems are often similar in style to the short story. Sometimes, these short narratives are collected into interrelated groups, as with Chaucer’s The Canterbury Tales. So sagas include both incidental poetry and the biographies of poets. An example is “The Cremation of Sam McGee” by Robert Service.

Narrative Poems by Famous Poets

Narrative Poems are a form of poetry that tell stories. Narrative poems often use rhyme, meter, repetition and a captivating and dramatic story to capture the readers interest. These classic Narrative poems include such classics as The Raven By Edgar Allan Poe, Paul Revere’s Ride By Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Casey At The Bat and the chilling tales of the Alaska gold rush by Robert W. Service.

🌹✍🏾”Woman In Travail” – Narrative Poem: By, Hyacinth W.M.✍🏾🌹

This narrative poem was a personal creation & combination of the poets experiences & that of others. It shines a bright light, on what many women have gone through, are going through & may go through, during one of the most precious moments in life. “Woman In Travail” is deeply felt.

🌹✍🏾”A Positive Voice When You’re All Alone” ~ By, Maxwanette A Poetess✍🏾🌹

How many of us are alone or even wish to be? Bearing in mind, that being alone & being lonely aren’t always the same.

How many are alone & feels like it’s driving them INSANE? As COVID-19 is affecting the entire world, heck! Many could use a hug or two.

But do be careful, for loneliness can warp the human brain. One can get stuck in the pit of loneliness, which can & often does distort the view of self, others & life. So, at times? We need “A Positive Voice When You’re Alone.”…

🌹✍🏾”Love Overdue” – by, Maxwanette A Poetess✍🏾🌹

“This poem came to me, literally out of the blue. I was in bed, dozing off & suddenly I got a vibe. I grabbed my pen & notebook – which I keep around the house, because I never know when a poem is going to spring forth, and jotted this down. It didn’t have a title until today.” ~Maxwanette A Poetess

🌹✍🏾P.L.O.T.S. Thoughts✍🏾🌹…

How are you? Hopefully during this time of COVID-19 & 5G, we’re being careful, cautious & wise. P.L.O.T.S. has been less active lately. Let’s share why…👀

I’ve been experiencing what I’m sure many are or have as well. Bonding, reconnecting, forgiveness & sharing love with others. GUILTY! If one can find that ray of sunshine & hope🌅, this would be it for me. Sure, it’s better to be able to hold the ones you love, give them that hug that says, it’s okay – we’re going to go through this together & I got you. At least we can call, video chat, email & share communications.📱💻

I confess, I’ve been tempted to bang on a drum🥁 or blow a trumpet🎺, to simply break up the monotony😅. Sadly I have neither & there’s no need to get an eviction notice😉. Maybe, run through my breezeway screaming, “WHE-E-E-E!” Again, not gonna happen, lol! But the thought is quite entertaining.

Honestly? I don’t even know if I’m what you’d call a “Blogger.” I simply share poetry, drop info, resources, love, positive vibes & go. But due to us having to spend more time at home & online, it’s becoming more personal on my part. And you know? That’s kind of cool & alright😉

As a Poetess, the feelings & emotions that’s universally felt & expressed, fuels my pen. I’m sure many can relate. INSPIRATION varies for everyone. As we have “time” create, meditate, relate & WRITE!✍🏾✍🏾✍🏾

🌹✍🏾How Do I Copyright My Book?✍🏾🌹

How many of you have a book written/writing and didn’t stop to think about the copyrighting??? It’s okay, it happens.

However, it’s smart to look into it before you decide to get published. Having someone stealing/plagiarizing your work can be a NIGHTMARE!

I came across this article and felt it was a MUST SHARE. It has great tips & advice on getting the job done. “WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF COPYRIGHTING!”😊
