(Course find beat chime melt groan shimmer sign water still oath short)
Course find for beat; stopwatch chime; starting gun;
Melt distance to sound of the rigging’s groan;
Shimmer sign water still; round mark to run —
With oath stopped short near finish; left alone!

Active septic geranium who plays with words writing fantasy novels and professionally editing, with notes writing classical music, and with riding a mountain bike, horses and dinghies. Recently Indie Publishing has been added to this list.
This actually worked out quite well.
have you got the words out of order or doesn’t it matter,
seems that melt comes before chime and short before oath; but I suppose you’ve got a a logical excuse that probably won’t make sense to me 😥
This is always tricky. Both are slightly lower than the other words, and are taken by me to be on a new line, as I read any move out of straight across will make them, In the same way it could be argued that groan comes after shimmer but to me it is on a line of its own.
But we had the same thing working for us in a Provincial Regatta where we chose the end of the line where there was wind, while the rest of the fleet . . . didn’t!

Oh, the scorching memories – nothing more discouraging…hand paddling and someone hanging on behind kicking – sadly not allowed.(Someone toss a rope, we’re over and done here…)
