We were challenged to write a pantun for Day 15, which apparently ‘consists of rhymed quatrains (abab), with 8-12 syllables per line. The first two lines of each quatrain aren’t meant to have a formal, logical link to the second two lines, although the two halves of each quatrain are supposed to have an imaginative or imagistic connection.’

Roses are red, and violets blue,
We love to love each other.
The many-petalled hand it grew
And plucked us clean asunder.
