A Clerihew is a form of poetry invented by the novelist, Edmund Clerihew Bentley (1875-1956). It is a whimsical, four line biographical poem with the rhyme scheme AABB, and with an irregular metre. The first line usually consists of only the subject’s name.
I have written a number of Clerihews and I am going to start posting them on my Blog tomorrow.
So – Watch this space!
