Little flower #thanbauk

Small bud on wing
To me sing now
You bring me love

This was written for the "Little Ones" episode #6 from Carpe Diem; it is a Burmese poetry form called 'Thanbauk'.

It consists of three lines of four syllables each. Traditionally, they are full of humour. It also has a rhyme in it. The rhyme is on the fourth syllable of the first line, the third syllable of the second, and on the second syllable of the third.

Awesome thanbauk Emma. I hadn't heard of this poetry form, but I like it a lot.

You did a great job with this lovely poem. It is harder than it looks to write. You painted a great picture!
