The Q word

I felt qualm, quavering in the quagmire; in a quandary yes I quarreled, querying as to mine quarantine in this quarry! In a quirk the quip came: “quiet the quill of thine quixotic quatrains or, out will come the quirt” Suck on a slice of lemon, and I'd bet ya, that you can read this one ! *smiles* The definitions for the "Q" words are on just two pages in the dictionary ! Have fun dear poets !

Your comment on the spring poem made me giggle, James. I love the baseball diamonds almost as much as I love the spring flowers. And when I hear the word "autumn," the first thing I think of is football, not foliage. LOL Too much tomboy in me I guess. Love you, Carolyn

Truly Don Quixotic. Have I missed it entirely? I looked up quirt which gave me this Quixotic image. Love, Dave

Tremendous use of alliteration, James, and the message comes through as well. All poets need to learn to "quiet the quill of thine quixotic quatrains" so their words seem sincere. Now I have to look up "quirts." Excellent, dear friend. And the Disney invitation still stands. Love, Carolyn
