The old posts of Griffon
They made me stiffen
I saw her so sad and adrift
But then her mood started to lift

Now she's got Faramond
They've made quite a pairbond
The love in their eyes
Is hard to disguise

Awwww

:love:

I seldom write "elfshadow"
But did you know
That she prefers a
lowercase "e" unless you write it "Elsha?"


A fire-kindler is Narya,
not as mighty as Vilya,
nor as clear as Nenya,
But warm and friendly to all ya.


The chemist Gilbert Newton Lewis
said, "all those other electrons are superfluous"
And then used dots to represent
the electrons in the outermost valence.

Now ... we need some fresh meat. Would a few of you lurkers please step into this thread so we can wax poetic about you?

I haven't yet thanked Teremia for waxing poetic about my alleged genius. :love:

It's amazing what those high paid spin doctors can do for an ordinary person's reputation.

I thought of one for myself, just becaue I was curious if anything other than "ruin" rhymed with MithLuin...

Did you know the name MithLuin
means grey and blue in
Sindarin? An ambiguous name,
but perhaps the poster is the same.

Oh, that rascally MithLuin!
She's taken to self-clerihewin' --
Forgotten the Rules!
Bless me, what are they teaching the children today in those schools?

Oh, right.

Very clever, Teremia! I'll have to come up with a good one for you, but I doubt I can beat that ;).


The new book by Miss Prim
will be as famous as Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH...
...or at least we all hope that's what's in store.
Then her autographs will be worth more. :D



What can we say about our precious Jewel?
She'd never call Ethel a fool,
She's daring enough to hop across the ocean
- for her friends, she's always in motion.



I always used to call vison "Vision"
but never earned any derision.
This is a lady who can take
things in stride. And bake!

baby tuckoo is an enigma
One minute infantile, the next a bigma.
So I coined that dorky word?
Isn't it the sharpest and most apt word you ever heard?

Neophyte sh_wulff
Has narrowed the gulf
Her very first tries
Make her sound wise.

Poems like Misha's
Are never facetious
Except when they are
Then they raise the bar

My poem for Teremia
is long overdue. My excuse? I was hit by a hemi, a
cat stole my pen, and my fingers were amputated one by one...
Well, not really, but there are so few new excuses under the sun!

Not sure I can do any more of these....

I'd love to write a poem about Frodo,
and how he saved Middle Earth, with a little prod-o
from Gandalf.
But that story is long, and requires in the listener the patience of an elf.

Okay, so that doesn't work, but he only word I can think of that rhymes with "Frodo" is "d'oh!" :doh:

Rhyming dictionary to the rescue! What, you don't have one?

Entries under O-do:
dodo
Frodo
quasimodo

If you just want to rhyme with the last "o", then the selection is much wider, including such useful words as adagio, ago, aglow, although, apropos, below, bestow, comme il faut, crow, death throe, dough, flow, foe, gazpacho, in flagrante delicto, know, low, messageboard ho, overthrow, plateau, rainbow, rondeau, undergo, Velcro, vertigo, Van Gogh, woe, and yo-yo.

OK, let's see you do a couplet with Frodo and each of those words. :D

Now sing thee of Frodo Ringbearer,
Who valiantly fought the great Terror
Without and within, he battled the Ring.
And finally in Mordor got rid of the thing.

I just noticed that at the front of the rhyming dictionary, there's a whole section on how to write good poetry. Perhaps I should read it. :roll:
