Magic spells

I’ll tell you of the poet Tory
Who can tell a tragic story
Detail abuse that’s real and gory
Or write a prayer to her God’s glory

Her love of life is very strong
She always tackles it headlong
Jumps in whether right or wrong
So join me in this little song

She really is a top class poet
Though she doesn’t seam to know it
Has such talent needs to grow it
I’m pretty sure that she won’t blow it

She’s loved by all who know her well
She traps them in a magic spell

Author notes

Just playing around with ideas in the form here.

Four lines, quad feminine rhymed, iamb iamb iamb amphimacer
Four lines, quad masculine rhymed, iamb iamb iamb iamb
Four lines, quad feminine rhymed, iamb iamb iamb amphimacer
Couplet masculine rhymed iamb iamb iamb iamb

Would work just the same with an extra iamb per line I think.
