|A special place to hide was my grandfather’s eyrie tree;
Its limb curved into a seat where I settled in this very tree.
And I stayed there for hours reading my favorite book,
which captivated me when hidden in his fairy tree.
Though it was one among many different garden drupe
bowers shielding me on his farm; my special airy tree
Bore round fleshy yield of yellow and red, sweet and sour
O’er an arbor of grapes shaded by my merry berry tree.
This garden of blooming trees where bees tarry cocoons me;
Honey cones drip blossoms’ nectar from Pappy’s cherry tree.

Form: A Ghazal is a poem that is made up like an odd numbered chain of couplets, where each couplet is an independent poem. It should be natural to put a comma at the end of the first line. The Ghazal has a refrain of one to three words that repeat, and an inline rhyme that preceedes the refrain. Lines 1 and 2, then every second line, has this refrain and inline rhyme, and the last couplet should refer to the authors pen-name.
Syllabic Pattern: 13-16
Rhyme Pattern: The rhyming scheme is AA bA cA dA eA etc.
Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.~~Robert Frost
