As many people who read my blog are aware, I love a good bit of rhyme! I enjoy the childlike process of making sounds match and of giving words special emphasis in the process. Day 16 of the poetry challenge encourages us to write a poem in which play features prominently so I have chosen to write about my ol’ mate Rhyme!
Rhyme and Reason
Rhyme you help keep me on track
Creating you is a good crack
Free flow – a real punch it can pack
But Rhyme you always have my back!
When time is short, the odds are stacked
You have the most uncanny knack
For you my Rhyme, I’ll take the flack
You help words stick, you’re like Blue Tac
No need my tired brain to wrack
You tough and tried dear old rain mac
It’s fun to feel the beats you stack
You fill me with love shack attack
