New Forms (7): Sevenling

Zennor Mermaid

Sevenlings are short 
and fun to write.

Background to the Sevenling form can be found here

Roddy Lumsden invented the Sevenling about ten years ago, drawing on translations of a short verse by Anna Akhmatova (1889 - 1966).

Compose a Sevenling poem! Instructions can be found here.

My published example:
'Sevenling (Zennor Fish Tale)' in The Mermaid's Mother & Sycorax (Wendy Webb Books, 2020).  [13/2010]
