V
Velvet covers, Valentines lovers, vis--vis scenes
Vaulted arches, victory marches, venting spleens
Valley splendors, vegetable vendors, verdant greens
Views unforgettable.

I
Image makers, indolent takers, impoverished dives
Icon breakers, idolized fakers, indiscreet wives
Idyll acres, ice cream makers, itchy red hives
Impressions retinal.

S
Sequined dresses, sloppy messes, sanitized whites
Shining faces, straightening braces, smoothed overbites
Snowy climates, swinging primates, seasonal rites
Sights indescribable.

I
Intricate weavings, illicit thievings, ill-chosen ties
Insipid blandness, imperial grandness, infinite skies
Inspired writings, impending fightings, ignoble lies
Images durable.

O
Ominous clouds, outspoken crowds, opposite views
Overdone hype, oversized type, official news
Outlandish hair, outrageous flair, outmoded shoes
Oglings memorable.

N
Narcissist jocks, negligent docs, newsworthy trials
Nervous first kiss, newlywed bliss, nuptial aisles
Notable gents, new-minted cents, neighborly smiles
Never erasable.

Fresh at dawning, glaring at noon, dimming at night,
Softened with love, sharpened with fear, reddened with spite
Scent of color, touch of beauty, taste of light
Vision invaluable.

Love this, love this, love this! Wonderful, wonderful phrases, awesome poetic structure, everything just perfect. The only thing I'd change (purely personal preference) would be to eliminate the single letters before each stanza. This is absolutely gorgeous!

Very original. One of my favs
Marilyn Schnepp 08/12/06
Took alot of thought to create this masterpiece of poetic rhyme - and without the Letters of "V","I","S", etc. preceding each stanza, I don't believe I would have seen it - at least not immediately. Great Job! no...an Excellent job! Kudos.

Any time you can work the phrase venting spleens into a work it is good. Great job.
Rita Garcia08/15/06
