This is a poem that I sent to some friends and family regarding the first day of Winter. It garnered enough of a postive response that I decided to share it with you. I hope you enjoy it.
I sent this letter on a stormy day,
Filled with words I wished to say.
To friends and family, both, the same,
'Cause I thought we'd play just a little game.
Think of a word, one simple word,
It's easy to do, I've been assured.
Now think of a rhyme, one simple rhyme,
A rhyme to last till the end of time!
It's not so hard, please give it a try.
You've done it? Okay, now so will I!
Now, what was your word? Was it a joke?
What was the word -- the word that you spoke?
Oh well, no matter, this has been a test.
To see if you'd read to the end of this mess.
You've been tricked! Ha ha! You don't need to rhyme!
I've been quietly writing, and wasting your time!
A minute or two, washed down the drain!
In which you could have been using your brain!
I'm sorry, I guess, I'm a terrible guy...
No wait, no I'm not, that's another big lie!
So, cheers to you all. This has been fun,
My tale of woe, has already been spun.
And now we can breathe, since this poem is done.
I'll add, Happy Winter, Everyone!
