[Schuttelreim: Poetic Forms
Couplet (or two-line) poem or stanzas.
The final two words of each couplet exchange initial consonants.]
In the valley by the rippling creek
arose a stench, a crippling reek;
the whirring wings of a dragonfly
hovered next to a flagon dry.
On the stone banks lay a bony pile,
the rotting remains of pony bile;
the horse had drunk the flagon dry
when offered it by the dragonfly.
Not quite dead the horse drew breath
narrowly missing a cruel brew death;
slowly unfolding and sitting kneel ready
it humbly knew it had been a real Neddy!
Penned this the other day so thought I would share it on dVerse's Open Link Night where we can share a poem of our choosing.
