Slant Rhyme

Hi Jan Just attemping another try at it. Avoiding the Saviour, I'd dithered all day. I'd shillied and shallied and fallen from grace; The guilt of it all had left me fast bound, But I broke free at last with his aid. Can't get my head around trying to rhyme something that doesn't. I'd much rather pu...

Setting

I chose this setting because in the dungeon of the tent it compounded the desolation that Miriam was experiencing because of the error of her way.

HOMEWORK

Hi Jan

Got my running shoes on again.

Avoiding my Saviour, I'd dithered all day.
He'd sent me a message but I had delayed.
Then further guidance from him was made
To get up and follow his every way.

I think it may be a bit forced.

Colin

Repetition

Hi Jan - I've just found this lesson! Jn 1vv1-5 In the beginning was the Word, and the the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God; all things were made through him, and without him was not anything made that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of ...

Onomatopoeia

Jan - the first verse of Frankie Laine's "Mule Train" seems to fit the bill: Mule train, yeah, yeah. Mule train: clippetty-clopping over hill and plain, Seems as how they'll never stop. Clippetty-clop, clippetty- clop clippetty, clippetty, clippetty, clippetty, clippetty-clopping along. My effort at...

Jan - just trying to catch up.

“Hey, you're supposed to be devouring hay in this new kingdom. So why the saliva drip every time I pass? You're supposed to lie down with me and be mates – you'll be in big trouble with the boss if you revert to your old ways.”

Snap! “That was worth dying for.”

My Alliteration Homework

Jan I'm not sure if this is how to let you have my homework - I hope it is. I've not used the message board much; so I'm not familiar with it. Home work:- Will was wondering why Wendy's watch wouldn't work. I sank to the depths of desolation because of my depression. Kath came to cuddle and coax the...
