Hum, Hummingbird.


Flower fairy, sing a soulful song
While the evil elf plays a glorious grey gong.
Wind, whistle and always stay strong
While the bees buzz, fly and dance all day long.
Hummingbird, hum. Right a wrong
While banshees bewitch and hiss ding dong.
Swan song in the lake will pain prolong.


The Alliterisen (Complex and Rhyming), a form created by Udit Bhatia, is a simple seven-lined poem with a specific syllable pattern and two alliterations per line. For example: Glorious Graves, and wonderful waves. Alliteration is the succession of similar consonant sounds. They are not recognized by spelling, but rather by sounds. The syllable structure for the Complex Alliterisen is as follows: 

1st line- x syllables 
2nd line- x+2 syllables 
3rd line- x-1 syllables 
4th line- (x+2)-1 syllables 
5th line- x-2 syllables 
6th line- (x+2)-2 syllables 
7th line- x syllables 

which allows for infinite syllable sequences. Listed below are examples of some easy syllable sequences. 

I used this sequence. For more sequences, http://www.shadowpoetry.com 

1st line- 9 syllables 
2nd line- 11 syllables 
3rd line- 8 syllables 
4th line- 10 syllables 
5th line- 7 syllables 
6th line- 9 syllables 

7th line- 9 syllables)
