As good buys at our local flea market last weekend before the goodbyes that followed, I found the loot pictured above. The most expensive item was the keyboard stand for my second keyboard and towards my tutor on keyboards currently nearing completion. The slide projector was found to be in perfect working order, and as a project for Durban and Coast Horticultural Society, I now have hundreds of slides to go through from the effects of the late Vernon Rippon, a horticultural legend locally. My own projector refuses to advance slides, so this was a godsend.
GloPoWriMo 2019 Day 19
Today, I’d like to challenge you to write an abecedarian poem – a poem in which the word choice follows the words/order of the alphabet. You could write a very strict abecedarian poem, in which there are twenty-six words in alphabetical order, or you could write one in which each line begins with a word that follows the order of the alphabet.
A big challenge demands effectively finding
Great heights, in just kindred letters minding;
Never order passing; queerest rows see —
To understand very well, x your zee!
(I chose the lazy economy version. Yes, x is a dictionary verb meaning to cross out, and zee is the North American word for zed.)
