The Wordle Get Around Again


I couldn’t resist another Wordle done according to my own cruel rules.

Possibly the test of a perfect response would be for it to seem that the set words have been snatched out of it, rather than that the poem has been formed from them.  I am rather pleased with this one – perhaps I have just about achieved that ideal.  What think you?

Threads of Virtue

The threads of virtue weave into a cloth of grace,

To witness rare contentment on the weaver’s face,

Whose endless quest in seeking out the root of good

Has given but brief claim that fleshly pleasures should

So intervene, to let erotic urges feed

Which, spirit empty, speak but of the body’s need.

  1. I wish I were better with words, my Mum read my biography in a program at the weekend and said it wasn’t good enough. I wish I could just do bullet points :0

      Biographies are usually better when they are done by a third party – auto ones tend to be either too conceited or too modest, or to focus on personal interests rather than what would impress the reader.


  2. You’re really in the swing of wordles now. This one is profound.

    Are we talking about Nutella? Because I can totally see it.

    You’ve written it as though the words were meant to be in that order, Col! I wouldn’t say snatched out… more expertly weaved through. I’m impressed with this one!
