    clerihew

    Ģâ "â" 쨸¡ Ţ Ũ. ̓ š Ţɢ ؾ , . A brief intro to it:

    A clerihew is a humorous verse, rather similar to a limerick, that generally uses the name of a well known person at the end of the first or second line. The form was invented by and is named for Edmund Clerihew Bentley. The clerihew is usually whimsical, showing the subject from an unusual point of view. It is hardly ever satirical or abusive, and unlike the limerick, it is not often obscene. The form includes four free verse lines with irregular, prose-like rhythm, with two pairs of rhymes (aabb).

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clerihew

    Examples:

    Edmund Clerihew Bentley
    Mused, when he ought to have studied intently;
    It was this muse
    That inspired clerihews.

    Sir Humphrey Davy
    Abominated gravy
    He lived with odium
    Of having discoverd Sodium

    š
    ġ ؾ

    !

    ¡â
    측è

    þ

    The last two were by sujatha. Not very good, IMO, but there isn't much I could quote in tamil. How about writing a few?

    Hey plz, I am a novice here. Can someone educate me

    as to how 5.7.5 or 7.5.7 syllable split would be done?

    For example lets take sujatha's example mentioned by RR.


    Ţ Ģ츢
    !

    How do we split this? Now since this does not talk about
    nature, but rather on human side, is this senryu?

    Also, how does Kaviko's verse become a haiku, when its
    two lined?

    Ţ ¢
    Ũ

    ______
    Please enlighten

    Prabha,

    Couple of posts below, I cite one sujatha's article. In that he says,

    ţ á ɢ Ģ á Ţ. ɢ Ţ () . Ȣ . Ÿ Ţ . ̨š ġ Ţ . ţ Ţ ȢŢ ŨŢ, Ÿ â ھ . ţ âǢ ؾθ. 17 ġŢ š¢. â ý Ȣ - Ȣ .
    BTW, The kavikko's haiku that I quoted is not precise. The original is 3 lines..
