Hi, again I am taking on one of murisopsis’s poetry forms from, ‘My Name scavenger hunt’, see link:

This is the penultimate one for me, the Bryant, in 1977 Viola Berg described the Bryant, as observations of nature as metaphor for the social and political world around us. This stanzaic form is patterned after To A Water Foul by American poet, William Cullen Bryant 1794 – 1878 (pictured above).
