Today, I studied the form of the Elegy.  An elegy (not to be confused with eulogy) is a poem of mourning.  The subject can be a person, thing or idea that has been lost to the poet somehow.  It consists of three parts.  Grief and sorrow, praise and admiration, and consolation and solace.  Stanzas are usually 4 lines of two end rhyming couplets.  I chose to write mine with 10 syllable lines and one stanza for each part. 

I plan to create an Elegy poem coupled with graphic art/manip for tomorrow for my [livejournal.com profile] seasonal_spuffy posting day from the POV of Spike after S5 The Gift. 
I had a hard time coming up with a subject to "mourn" in real life.  I haven't had much loss to deal with yet.  But then, I remembered something that was very emotional for me to lose as a teen, moving into adulthood.  The title of my elegy is:  Goodbye, Puppy Love  Elegy, this way. )
