The challenge this week was to write a clerihew. A clerihew is a four-line verse written in an a/a/b/b rhyme scheme that is biographical and humorous. Here are the results.
Terry, one of my amazing colleagues, left this poem in the comments.I chose to write about seasonal characters this week. Here are two of my efforts.
When Old Man Winter comes out to playJulie Larios from The Drift Record went WILD and wrote six, count 'em, six poems!
Children put their bikes away
And, gloved and coated, they ride instead
The slippery roads on a saucer sled.
Elaine from Wild Rose Reader wrote clerihews for the first time and came up with these three gems.
Jane Yolen stopped by and left this poem in the comments.
Emily Dickinson stayed at home
And each day wrote a little poem.
A little poem each day turns out
To be a lot to write about.
Frosty was a man of snow
who liked it ten degrees below.
He feared for days that were too warm,
for melting ruined his boyish form.
The shiny nose on Rudolph's face,
gives the 'deer a special place.
Leading the sleigh through fog and snow,
he's grateful that his bum don't glow!
It's not too late if you still want to join us in a little cheeky fun. Leave me a note about your poem and I'll add it to the list.
