Dappled

Doves, mountain robins, starling, pond heron, Dogs, donkeys, horses, deer, tigers splendid; Creatures existing in alien terrain Masterly molded; charmingly blended; Dappled beauty is enchantment tended, Gleaming, glowing, glazing and glistening, Dappled spottiness has brief brightening; Dappled persons are brave and courageous, In look solemn, tough, rough and frightening In actions swift, sharp, sincere, serious... 07 January 2022

So this has me curious! Creatures existing in alien terrain The site's syllable counters says that is 10 syllables. But when you put one word per line, it says "alien" is 2 syllables! I guess I pronounce it with a drawl: "a-li-en" and come up with 3. Weird. I'm interested seeing so many different forms tried here. Helping me to branch past limericks and Seuss! Take care
