Save the Whales

21 Apr

I raise orisons that our sons will become neither corsairs, nor scaramouches, nor wights that diddle the brit from unsuspecting right whales.

Use these to make your very own sentence.  Please?

    A POEM
    — dedicated to my children

    Little corsairs, heed your mother –
    Do not diddle one another.
    Please stop bickering;
    Don’t fight.
    Show love unto your fellow wight.
    If your lip should start to pouch,
    You might be thought — a scaramouch!
    My love for you will never quit,
    Though you would fill my tub with brit.
    Tomorrow is a new horizon –
    Gather now, to say orisons.

      Adriana, you’re a poet! That takes talent.

      Wuh-Ow-Uh! (and I don’t throw around my three-syllable wows lightly.)

      We might have spent some time on our run this morning figuring out how you were able to come up with this poetic gem so quickly, and questioning whether or not you ever sleep.

    Ladies, you’re too kind.
    I’ve never received a three-syllable “wow” before Christina. You crack me up.

    Started it on the day you posted “scaramouch”.
    “Brit” was a bit of a stretch to add (though not really, if you knew my kids).
    I was thrilled when you posted “orisons” — the perfect wrap-up word.

    Great words this week Christina!

    Adriana, I am truly amazed. Poetry Hebdominal Review will never be topped. This is my prediction.
