This poem is inspired by both the WordPress daily prompt, which is “continue,” and Jilly’s new September collaborative poetry challenge. I wrote one rubai, a quatrain with a rhyme scheme of aaba, and anyone is welcome to add another rubai to it!
When it seems all hope is faded, gone,
We must make up our minds to carry on,
As heart beats ever steady as a drum,
As doting doe spurs on her newborn fawn.
