LANDAY … A Poet’s Legacy

Roland's Ragbag

The Landay is a traditional Afghan poetic form consisting of a single couplet. There are nine syllables in the first line, and thirteen syllables in the second. These short poems typically address themes of love, grief, contemplation, homeland, war, and separation. Wikipedia

The couplet may rhyme, although this is not a requirement.
