A Quatrain in the afternoon

Tag: for Technorati Tags.

A Quatrain on a silent summer afternoon punctuated by the clickety-clack of keyboards and the smooth whirring of a fan.

Why don't I go for lunch?
I'm hungry for a challenge, not a quick brunch.
Tell me you cannot do it
I'll give my life to it
.

Q: What is a Quatrain?
A: A Quatrain is a poem or stanza of four lines. The word quatrain comes from Latin and it means four.

An example of a Quatrain.

Tyger! Tyger! Burning bright
In the forests of the night,
What immortal hand or eye
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?

~ William Blake, The Tyger.
