I'm so excited... I actually thought of one with a pun!

The poet whose name is Walt Whitman
Is loved by American lit fans.
His poetry drones
With serious tones...
He just isn't much of a wit man!

Wow... fantastic pelican pictures! Limericks are hard... or maybe I'm just focusing all my creativity on my November novel (yes, I know that's not an original excuse! :)). Anyway, here's my attempt, dedicated to our east-side-of-the-Metroplex neighbors who like to live WAY north of the city center.....

I agree--it's so much fun to read these! Here are a couple of late additions. One for the author of Gulliver's Travels : Jonathan Swift Set his hapless hero adrift To satirize bureaucrats all With creatures great and small. And one for my favorite poet. Please note the exquisitely elegant (ahem!) fo...

Oh, fun!! I’ve seen this type of poem before, but I didn’t know the technical name for it. Since “pointed political commentary” was disallowed, I admirably restrained my first impulse ( Let’s see... what rhymes with “Obama”... or better yet, "Pelosi"? ). So here’s one for my little guy: Simon Gabrie...

Wow, I've never been "Infamous No. 11" before! :)

I didn't expect to be even in the vicinity of the Top Ten this week, so I'm more than content. Congratulations, everyone!

I'm joining this discussion rather late, but I've enjoyed reading what everyone has written. Beautiful poetry! Before I make my weak little contribution, one quick comment on meter. If you love hymns, you may have noticed that hymnals often have metrical indexes in the back. You can choose a favorit...

I've been out of town a few days, and I'm so glad to see that the Master Class is back... even if it is about poetry this time! :) This really is going to be a stretch for me, but it'll be fun to try, anyway. Okay, here's my first attempt. I think it follows all the rules... maybe... Dull gray rainy...

Thanks, Jan... and congratulations, Lisa! :D So well-deserved! I just have to say... if it had been up to me, I'd have given you an EC for your marvelous "Beginning and End" entry, too... (If you haven't read Lisa's entry for that week, folks, you should. It's a masterpiece of apologetics!) Carol S.
