Wintle Memory

On a winter day I had a tumble, it was a wintle, topple and stumble; on ice I went for a slip, plunging I did a wild flip; I lay on the new snow in a jumble ! I heard ice crinkle as I had my spill, funny it all happened sliding downhill; on the way down I did sway, and my feet went quite astray; I pray now when there is a winter chill ! __________________________ January 08, 2022 Poetry/Limerick/Wintle Memory Copyright Protected, ID 01-1419-934-08 All Rights Reserved, 2022, Constance La France wintle definition - to tumble over Written for the Standard contest, Funny Memories sponsor, Natasha L Scragg, Judged 01/28/2022 First Place

nicely constructed. my favorite thing is the word "wintle." I'd never heard it before and it works so well with winter. Best of luck :)

Nice title! Enjoyable composition! falling, flipping, slipping sliding, tumble, good rhyming... all joyous to read but actually if we get the experience we would all pray like the last line!! Enjoyed very much. Thanks - Marshall.

Marshall, thanks for the compliment, actually, last Winter I went for a tumble and broke my right rib, so yes, I pray now when I must walk in the snow/ice ~ friendship and poetry _Constance
