Rory, A Guy Called Bloke, started another on of his “Not Just My Verse” poetry blog hops. He tagged Paula Light (Light Motifs II) and then she tagged me, although I don’t know why? Poetry is not exactly my forte.
Anyway, here’s how it works. Rory explains that he will write a four line rhyming verse. Then he will tag one of his readers who will, in turn, add four lines of rhyming verse to his and then tag one of their own readers. It’s a case of “wash, rinse, repeat.” But each tagged blogger must stick with the topic. So what is the topic this time around? It’s “Twas Not Twas!”
So here’s how Rory started things off:
I am sure, well pretty sure NO, of course l am sure!
Twas not twas, twas not there before!
And yet, here l am looking upon it with widened eyes …
This thing that twasn’t, and yet now it twas a surprise!
Then Paula followed up with:
When I told my friends what had transpired,
They laughed and said I must be a liar,
For things like THAT surely are not real;
Then it came back and said let’s make a deal.
And now it’s my turn:
So it wants to make a deal?
Well that does have some appeal.
I asked it, “Whatsit all about?”
And that twas when it started to shout.
Okay. I’m going to pass the poetic baton to:
Christine Bolton at Poetry for Healing.
