Scaredy Cat, Fraidy Cat

Writing 101 Day 17: What are you scared of? Address one of your worst fears. If you’re up for a twist, write this post in a style that’s different from your own.


A scaredy cat, a fraidy cat,

A shadow black beside me sat,

In poised arch, puff big I freeze,

Stops threat cold, imbues unease,

Scared myself and blind I flee,

Hide some where it can not see.

A scaredy cat, a fraidy cat,

A shadow black beside me sat.

Trying an “Octelle” poem style, for October. The Octelle, created by Emily Romano, is a poem consisting of eight lines using personification and symbolism in a telling manner. The syllable count structure for this verse is 8, 8, 7, 7, 7, 7, 8, 8, and the rhyme scheme is aa/bb/cc/aa. The first two lines and the last two lines are identical.
