Emile’s set a poetry contest in which the poet omits one vowel It’s hard to write this exacting form yet I will not throw in the towel! So I’m tasked to write a poem I’ve got myself into the groove to try and write a brilliant ditty and hope the sponsor will approve I started a Shakespearian sonnet and I grappled with the rhyme My poem didn’t make any sense badly penned work is a crime! I threw away my first attempt now I’ve grasped my silver pen determined to enter the contest alas, I’m devoid of ideas again If I write of the spring season and lambs gamboling in the field With the mother ‘ewe’ watching them my missing vowel can be revealed! Hoping the poem can be removed from contest as U is not one of the permitted vowels 06/11/21

Great job on this. Yours is so fluid and I love your word play with the "ewe"/u.

This idea that you were inspired with Jan is not only exceptionally clever, but great fun and all this whilst trying to omit a vowel - stupendous! Hugs and blessings, Jennifer.

thanks Kim, perhaps there will be another contest and i can enter it then:-) hugs Jan xx

oh are you saying that he only allowed a, e, and I to be removed? I recall noticing one vowel was not included. I wonder why. Jan, you did a REALLY cute job with this. I love the fun you have with challenges. Never lose your sparkle. And shoot me an email sometime!

Shame its a pity I didnt read the rules as U is not one of the chosen vowels for the contest, oh well back to the drawing board if the sponsor can mark my poem as ;unread' :-( hugs jan xx

Leave it to "ewe" Jan. As I read I was waiting for a "P-ewe" ending....
