Who would have thought

Such a worthy retort

Could find so much rhyming with Carol

I sure do like 'narrow'

Much better than 'barrel'

But 'wheelbarrow' scores you a nought.

The rhyme 'sparrow's OK

In a bird sort of way

But the rhyme that I'm liking by far

Is the one 'cupid's arrow' -

So much better than sparrow

And instantly makes you a star :wow:

I have some concern

That this jousting could turn

Into something beyond all good reason

If it goes on much more

We could get shown the door

With our posting rights stopped for the season

Perhaps some good members

Would be our defenders

They might even write pleas, and then file'em

They would have to be quick

'Cos we'd be in the nick

If we didn't end up in Asylum. :)

Should we call lit a draw

Or d'you want to play more?

If you want I will happily persist

It has always been friendly

And 'though not very trendy -

A temptation that's hard to resist. :)

I'm not sure if that is a compliment or not Les, it's probably not on my list of things I want to achieve in life, but I'll take it as one anyway- thanks. :laughingg:

I'm up for the game

if it causes no pain

its entertaining with learning as well

as long as Clancy doesn't mind

the bandwidth for these lines

I think continuing this would be swell

What would make it a treat

and really be sweet

is if more than the two of us play

should we move some of this thread

to the music lounge instead

or leave it here and hope not for decay

It comes to my mind

That you both have to much time

On your hands at this juction of life

My advice on this matter

Is to continue this chatter

Unless it causes to much strife.

This thread seems to have picked up

I'm surprised that it continued

Apologies for butting in

Please don't think me rude

I couldn't help myself you see

Have an addiction to poetry

Best make this the final verse

Before I make you posters curse

A never ending thread it seems

Of poetry and rhyme

I can't think of a better way

To pass away the time

There's hoovering

And other chores

But that bores me to tears

I much prefer

Being a songster

Hanging out with my peers

If you sail by a star

With light from afar

Or run a drive with 4 strings

One thing is for sure

Your poety is pure

If you write from what your heart brings

Carrying on from the line "your heart brings"

it really is easy if you listen when it sings

your heart never lies its feelings are right

believe you found the key thankyou Knight

Carrying on from thankyou Knight

Thankyou Knight the key you found

A heartfelt song it does resound

Echoes softly with an air

Of love and life and constant care

The melody makes one aware

They'll always be a friend out there

It rhymes a lot of this I know

Methinks it's time for me to go

They'll always be a friend out there

one who's true and will always care

and that makes life much more fun

to share with those the love of song

and not point out just whats wrong

so thanks... you all are a true one

What a wonderful pleasure

And one that I treasure

To chat with you guys and have fun

It brings out the sun

And keeps the mind young -

Who cares if the housework’s not done.

There’s one thing I find

And its been on my mind

That in order to rhyme and to scan

We must turn off the noise

And the chatter of toys

To hear our own heart and its plan.

Time is a blessing

So too is confessing –

I’m loving this game using words.

This is University

It contains such diversity

But we may all be labelled as nerds.

I’m glad that you guys

Are so witty and wise

And have joined in this small slice of fun

It may not be a song

But its certainly long

And it brings us together as one. :grouphug:

Moving this thread

Sure does fill me with dread

The job would be tedious and long

Perhaps our salvation

Needs more motivation -

Can we turn it somehow into song?

Maybe we should check

with administrator terms

last thing we want

is an open can of worms

I see this as part

of song writing skills

to see it stop now

would give me the chills

I guess we should ask

for a wee bitty glancy

from our beautiful hostess

the fabulous Miss Clancy

We'll know where we stand

with these forum rules

and not appear to some

as a bunch of ol fools

No need to move threads

if its quite the chore

Happy right here

if we can post some more

But if it comes to an end

Let me assure you this

its been so very nice

sharing in this bliss

I'll ask for a ruling

On this venture of pooling

Our rhyming and jesting and glee

Who knows, but what's certain

It won't bring down the curtain

And at least it has all been for free.

If we have to remove

To a place more approved

It is not such a difficult task

Its more that I'm lazy

And the cut-off point's hazy

And in sun-shine I rather would bask.

Your a heck of a trooper

no not a party pooper

good luck with whatever may fall

if our luck holds true

and we get to keep this zoo

where it starts doesn't matter at all

just use the skills of your pen

jot down some magic again

that would lead us off all anew

don't know how it read

but the idea of a thread

was to see if we could reach more of the crew

Yes, the more is the merrier

Not to sit on their derriere

Just judging on other one's talents

It's so good to do collab

At least have a good stab

Else wind up like poor Richie Valence (ouch, sorry) :surrender

To lead off anew

With a topic or two

Is not something easy or simple

I am more of a follower

I suppose I’m just hollower - (but)

I’ve just got to rhyme simple with pimple!

After such lapse in taste

I will move on with haste

But I seem to be stuck with the Limerick

It is only one choice

For the rhyming of voice

I hope for your sake, you’re not sick of it.

Please help me to change

From this limited range

Of rhyming and rhythm and such

If I could just do it

(Please pass me the cruet)

I fear that I’m quite out of touch.

Rhythm and blues

Is the cadence I choose

But I can’t seem to find my way back

I am stuck with this verse

Like its some kind of curse -

It’s not that I’m lazy or slack.

Good news from our Clancy!

It seems she don’t fancy

The great task of moving it either

It’s up to us now

To furrow the brow

And come up with something to please her. :)

First let me say

to get it out of the way

dimple with simple I choose

but what do I know

I just go with the flow

leave stuff like that for my muse

The style change you desire

has sparked my own fire

another way would be good I admit

to learn a new skill

is always a thrill

but on the subject I don't know...a bit

And its not Clancy to blame

I hope you don't feel shame

its not that big of a deal

but I'm not quite that clear

please answer me dear

is it a new thread we need to reveal

Didn’t mean to be cryptic

But at times there’s a big stick

That hovers and fills me with dread

Its to do with the household

That demands time or blindfold

Or the mess gets too much for my head.

Concerning this thread

No need to have dread

Those rules only apply if we’re stupid

We must only stay sane

And keep this side of pain

And, if possible, don’t mention cupid.

----- o ----- o ------ o -----

I have been trying to change

My rhyming scheme

And its not as easy as it might seem

The limerick’s grip has held me fast

And everything else feels very strange.

Already I feel the meter slip

As I struggle to rhyme and yet break free

I resist, I resist, but the pull is strong

Can anyone please help me?

:helpsmili
