Writing 201: Poetry, Day Six – Hero

Week One of the challenge I based my theme on Tolkien, this week I think I will try for Jim Butchers Harry Dresden.

Prompt: Herowriting-101-june-2014-class-badge-2

Form: Ballad

Device : Anaphora/Epistrophe

Inspiration: Harry as he stands at the end of Skin Game. Winters Knight but still Harry.

Maids and maidens, knights and squires,

Harry Dresden, a bane and blessing to those who hire.

Faerie blessed and life cursed,

Harry Dresden, tall in leg, short in temper and conscience coerced.

Fire by hand and cold in vein,

Harry Dresden, heart of Stone, black but true.

Loyal friend and steadfast enemy,

Harry Dresden, father, hero and shade worthy.

Strong, fragile, fates outsider,

Harry Dresden, demon jailer, rule breaker, dinosaur rider.
