    He was my North, my South,
    my East and West.
    My working week and
    my Sunday rest.
    My noon, my midnight,
    my talk, my song.
    I thought that love would
    last for ever: I was wrong.

    ~W.H. Auden

    The mondo is a Japanese style of poetry written in the form of a question followed by an answer, both written by the same person. (Originally, it used to be written as a collaboration of two poets, one presenting a thoughtful question and the other giving an enlightening answer in two different stanzas.)

    Come live with me and be my Love,
    And we will all the pleasures prove
    That hills and valleys, dale and field,
    And all the craggy mountains yield.

No matter the form or structure the poetry takes, it always explores country life.

    The plates will still shift
    and the clouds will still spew.
    The sun will slowly rise
    and the moon will follow too.

    Life’s beauty will continue
    to flourish all around,
    but now you are gone.

    – Amy O Connor

    The pathetic fallacy is a figure of speech in which the natural world is treated as though it had human emotions. For instance "weeping cloud" is an example of the pathetic fallacy. This is also a kind of personification, or describing non-human objects in human ways but in strictest sense, the pathetic fallacy can only be applied to nature – animals, trees, weather patterns, etc.

    --Today, write a poem using pathetic fallacy in it.--

    Pathetic fallacy

    But when the melancholy fit shall fall
    Sudden from heaven like a weeping cloud
    That fosters the droop-headed flowers all
    And hides the green hills in an April shroud

    I met a lady in the meads,
    Full beautiful—a faery’s child,
    Her hair was long, her foot was light,
    And her eyes were wild.
