I do not pretend to understand the clerihew format for poetry...But I do like this poem of yours, Janice - It is so expressive! All the very best for your New Year - Cheers! :) john

Thank you so much, John. Happy New Year to you too! What's especially hard for me about the clerihew is the requirement that the lines be DIFFERENT lengths. I'm so used to writing strictly metered poetry! Janice

Hello Janice!! Best of Luck in the contest with your Clerihew here. I think that your use of Picasso's Lady here and her physical description are perfect. I've written a couple of these in the past. The Clerihews are fun to do!! A "7" for sure!! Best Wishes, Gary

Thank you, Gary. I do love those 7's. The clerihew requires us to get right to the point--to make every word count. Janice
