IRRITABLE VOWEL SYNDROME
and post notes and photos about your poem like JAN ALLISON.
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
