Mark you said you would like to see me write more freely not always feeling I have to Rhym to express what i have to say and I do believe after so many years of writing it has become a bad habit but I thank you for your honesty and your beautiful message.
Your Newfie friend, Hugs, Rose

A Bad Habit to Break
October 1, 2009
Written by: Rose Marie Rideout
Mark this one’s for you


I know that you are my dear friend
 and that for me you truly care.
But it ‘s a bad habit to break,
Those words I love to share. O0PS

I know that there’s no need,
To rhymn each and every line,
It’s just a bad habit to break,
I’ll really try to change in time.   OoPS

I know as I am reading this,
Again I write those words,
The way you dislike to see,
me express the way I feel inside.

For you I will try my best,
To let my thoughts run free,
And hope that all will understand,
My new way of writing my poetry. OoPS

I always know what I want to say,
But the words just won’t appear,
But I will try to break this habit some,
For a dear friend who would never lie to me.


                                       Oops LOL.

This is so clever, Rose! OOPS, indeed!:) I say rhyme away, my friend. Rhyme and rhythm are not nearly as easy to handle as people tend to think, and you make them seem easy. 'Far as I am concerned, poetry is very much about being yourself. Doing your own thing! I got a kick out of this, a n d see it as dealing with a serious issue.

I am with Mark on this one, your poetry is effortlessly read because it comes out effortlessly from your heart, inspiration, muses or what you have. As long as it comes from our Rose, we will understand what is said.

lol. I'd like to have your bad habits, Rose. Your bad habit is better than others I could mention but won't because I would incriminate myself. Liz
Reviewed by John Flanagan 10/1/2009
I'm not convinced it's a bad habit at all as it comes quite effortlessly to you, and I like your ability to send it up gently and persuasively.

I love the tongue in cheek feel of this one Rose, we Newfs are brought up and cut our teeth on rhyme so it is not really a bad habit but a way of life, we can and do venture out of the box from time to time as I once explained to you back when you first joined AD but we do our work our way...and that is what it's all about.
Reviewed by Paul Berube 10/1/2009
A BAD habit? NOT!!! Writing in meter and rhyme takes a lot of patience and skill, Rose. Prose, or free style, is actually quite simple. You do what's in your heart, Rose; and don't let anyone talk you out of your own style. I love your writing just they way it is. It makes you, YOU! And that's what it's all about. Great write my friend. God bless.

Rose, I do not want to be the one that is responsible for taking you from doing something you love doing and the way you love doing it.
In reading "A Bad Habit to Break", I find that although there are rhyming words, this somewhat free verse poem has a tempo that eaisly flows and all words fit, at least in my opinion, as they should.
I am very proud to be able to call you a friend.
Reviewed by M. Andrew Sprong 10/1/2009
It is neither bad nor good to rhyme, but unfeeling is the true crime.
Oops. LOL
I liked it, thanks.

I love your rhymes. Sometimes they are just part of our soul and it takes effort to write in free verse. Keep trying but don't throw your rhyme away.
Reviewed by Gene Williamson 10/1/2009
Clever, Rose. Well done. I prefer free verse myself,
but envy writers skilled at rhyme. -gene.
