Slow and Steady Wins the Race...
Slow and Steady Wins the Race...

A race between a tortoise and a hare...
A base for each to have a chance...
A pace of fast, a pace of slow...
A case for persistence over arrogance...


A pair, mismatched, had competed...
A dare had prompted the event...
A ne'er expected end result because...
A hare was simply overconfident...



Written for "Once Upon A Contest
Prompt: A Lento poem based on a fairytale.
8 Lines based on The Tortoise and The Hare.

A Lento is written in two quatrains with a fixed rhyme scheme:

All the FIRST words of the verse should rhyme (aaaa, bbbb)

NOTE: Although I have the beginning of the lines rhyming, I must admit each line starts with a two word rhyme: A this and a that.


The END of second and the fourth lines of each stanza should rhyme (abcb).


~ ~ ~ JESUS is LORD! ~ ~ ~
