The NaPoWriMo suggestion for today:
I’ve looked through window at the view,
And noted nouns and colours: Check!
The trees are green, the pool is blue –
With lots of fleck, but what the heck.
Most houses are quite light, all right,
Though some do seem a sort of cream,
To call them white would make it trite:
That would, I deem, cause lost esteem.
Their tops are mainly tiled in red,
Alas, alack, one’s done in black;
In garden bed, it must be said,
There is, of blooms, a sorry lack.
I could find more for this sad score,
A lot of stuff would show, I know,
By getting up before I saw …
Such effort, though, is a no-go!
