    A poem written in honour of Miss Sevelda's Birthday!

    An Ode to Sevelda

    Oh, there's a thing that poets dread
    It gives a tricksy time
    To write an ode about a lass
    Whose name just doesn't rhyme

    I'll tell you who I'm thinking of
    Sevelda is her name
    I think of many varied words
    But nothing sounds the same

    I really want to write a rhyme
    Her Birthday is today
    Oh, if her name was Honeypie
    I'd write one straight away!

    Perhaps I'll have to ponder words
    That match her love of green
    There's clean and scene and beans and ...err...
    I rue what might have been

    I just can't use her surname too
    For little rhymes with kettle
    And nor is she a metalsmith
    So I can't mention metal

    So, Happy Birthday Sevelda
    Please have a lovely time
    But maybe as a present now
    You'll get a name that rhymes?
    Sevelda, Nimelia, Tibba and 4 others like this.

  3. Lully Member

    *waits fer Simbo to attempt to rhyme "Lina" with "biscuit"*
  4. Tibba Voluntary Assistant Chief

    Ah, but Miss Lully, the real challenge will be when he has to rhyme Lina with Jiro... *ducks*
    Sevelda and Lully like this.
  5. Lina Chief

    *scolds far and wide*
