My Wordle, How Did I Get Into This?

I’ll tell you how – Viv in France is guilty of enticement!

Anyway, the idea is to use this prompt from The Sunday Whirl:
I wondered if I could use all the words as economically as possible  in the order given, and add regular rhyme and meter.  It was fun trying, and the result does seem to convey a message of high ideals inspired by a lady love …


Listen to the object of your affection,

Full her dream let flower in your mind,

Ease the present, let it shine in your reflection,

Like water dripping, words of wisdom find;

With these other thoughts, then banish all dejection,

Transform to being noble, wise and kind.

    In order, and rhyming yet! Nicely done … I’ll have to have a word with Viv … what is she thinking bringing someone so capable aboard? Doesn’t she remember how insecure we all are? Pffft.
    Seriously, welcome. Great poem.


  7. oh Viv will enjoy having a new player aboard! Great job. You could, of course, be a bit easier on yourself, ya know!

    I love this. Honestly, this has Emily Dickinson written all over it.

    Viv makes it look so easy… and now you.
    I may just have a go myself…


  10. Welcome to the whirl. And you made it more difficult for yourself – there is no requirement to use the words in the same order. Yours has all the hallmarks of a grand master wordler!

      You are too kind – just as I was too unkind in setting myself the challenge of doing it that way!
      I’m nasty to me sometimes, like when there was an alphabet poem challenge and each day I made EVERY LINE start with the designated letter. Z was not easy …
