      Thanks again. Tomorrow I go to read to the Sixth Grade Gifted & Talented students of Brenham Middle School.at the Giddings Mansion. This is my 5th year being invited back so maybe there is still hope for rhyme in the future. I wrote this in one of my more whimsical moments:


                                                                                                                                     THE RHYME

       

      Last night I wrote a poem

      But the words just didn’t fit,

      With syllables too many

      And the meter off a bit.

       

      A participle dangled

      And an adjective displaced,

      The metaphor intended

      No longer could be traced.

       

                                                                                                                       The grammar was atrocious

      And the similes a crime.

      I am very proud of it

      Because I made it rhyme.

      Thanks Marianne but humorous rhyming poets or almost as popular in the poetry community as smallpox.

      Saw in the paper that we’re getting a Houston Poet Laureate: http://blog.chron.com/bookish/2013/02/houston-seeking-its-first-poet-laureate/  

       

      I think we should nominate Wayne Edwards! http://www.familypoet.com/
