The Pantoum Poetry Form

Joyce Sidman has a wonderful pantoum poem in Butterfly Eyes and Other Secrets of the Meadow. A source of inspiration to me, I have written three poems since discovering the form.

One thing I discovered about the pantoum form is that they create a mood of a slower, enchanting time.
Here are some places you might want to investigate to learn more about the form:

I have an earlier post from Sunday Scribblings that I may try and revise as a pantoum.

Happy Writing.
