Four Fabulous Years in the Key of F

From Frank to Faye

Flashing back in our memories, we find that our first four years together were fruitful And filled with frolic. Four, fondly affectionate, fun-filled years of fanfare! When we met we felt fond of each other but, our fathers forbid our fair friendship. They felt it merely a foolish fancy, and were flabbergasted and foiled when we fraternized. They feared that when a fellow and a filly frolic, they become frantic. Fortunately we never felt their fury because they finally faced the facts. Frankly, my father, Frank, felt fond of my fair female friend. Her father figured the frivolous facts were too flimsy to forgo the friendship. So we frolicked together in friendly, far-flung flirtations, Having fabulous fellowship in our courtship. Feeling frisky, on our Fourth Anniversary, we plan to flop in our flivver, Finding our way to Niagara Falls, where we will flutter in the fountains of full-fledged fulfillment!

    James, to see contest results scroll down the left-hand side of this page to the heading "Contests." Beneath it click on "Contest Winners: Member." There are several pages of contest results the althought the results were originally on the first page, with soo many contests, you may have to click the link to "2" for the second page at the bottom. Hope that helps. You'll see all the winners posted there. Love, Carolyn

    One of the best examples of well used alliteration I've ever seen, James. We can't all frolic when families are against a relationship, but at least her Dad came around and now you have had four wonderful years together. Congratulation on your anniversary. Love, Carolyn

    You've got some real tongue-twisters imbedded in this presentation. Overall, this is a fine fabulously flippant forging of freeverse.
