Today it's couplets, making rhyme
For this I have a little time.
If you wish of these to learn,
To Steph's blog you should return.
At this hour my mind is blank
I have a book for this to thank
I have read since morning's light
About a knowing man who fights
Not even food has passed my lips
For I have read of books and ships.
Now that this task is at my hands
I can but think of far off lands.
Of honor, bravery, knowledge bright
Of kings and thieves and pale moonlight
What are rhymes to fearsome battles
Mere snips and snaps and fluffy tattles
Ah! I can't think about this though
Back to the book with glee I go.
Have a most auspicious day
While I the hours do while away.
(The book I'm revelling in is THE WALKING DRUM by Louis L'Amour. And yes, interestingly enough, he has written at least one book in another genre than Western. The truly sad thing is that he didn't live to finish a sequel.)
