Bouts-Rime, Poetry Form in 55 Words


Alphabe-Thursday (S is for Sneeze)


***** 

Wooed by anxious August breeze,
The giant, kind, and reliable elephant
from the Africa wild starts to sneeze,
and under the orange tree to pant,
lives are transforming, look at the ant,
Golden delicious peanuts are crunchy to please,
A time to harvest dreams of peace;
Take them all, including a mouse and his cheese.
