Climbing Rhyme

I find that I think best on the front step.
I have been working on a Climbing Rhyme for Marilyn.
My Kittypie~by Mickey Mantle

Thoughts of my Kittypie
make me sigh. I will
always try to delight,
as her white knight, and work
as I might to be witty
for my sweet kitty who's clever
and pretty. I write this verse
in which i immerse my affection
and rehearse my line
"you are divine, Marilyn. You're a
fine feline! You're perfection!"

My darling Mickeybear,

Oh my goodness, I am blown away! That is a beautiful climbing rhyme! Yes, climbing rhyme is indeed a challenge, and you did an absolutely exquisite job -- it is lyrical and lilting and the rhyming is just purr-fect.

Thank you so much, my sweet dear and white knight - you, my precious mancat, are sheer sweet romantic perfection!

*swoon*, *swoon*, *swoon*
*purrrrrrrrrrrrr*
and *great big kittysmile!*

Love and whisker-kisses from your Kittypie

What a lovely verse for your kittyPie! And you look very handsome thinking on your steps. It is a great place to write prose and poetry yes?

I love these climbing rhymes! Like I said to Marilyn when she did one, they remind me of rap lyrics! Especially Eminem. He's great at internal rhymes. Even though he raps about not nice things sometimes, he's quite the poet.

Whoops! I forgot to say that I haven't forgotten about the meme that you and Marilyn tagged me for (I think it's cute that you both tagged me for it without knowing!). I owe Jeter a post about the d-o-gzillaz first, then I'll get to the meme. It was so exciting to get a prize all the way from New York!
