A to Z Poetry: Pictorial Poems

A pictorial poem is a shape poem  printed in slanting lines indicative of the thought in those lines. The poem should consist of three lines with five or less words per line with a rhyme somewhere in the poem. I’ve used an ending rhyme in my examples, but an internal rhyme can also be used.
