      • Ballade it is then. I was thinking that for a rhyme like this I would need to choose a word that had as many meanings as possible for purposes of potential punning (I am fond today of my 'p's :) ) and variation of the versifiers intent. The word 'turn' by Hawklord is actually the kind of word I was looking for. When I checked an on-line rhyming dictionary however it wasn't as easy as I thought so feel free to modify my choice if you want.
        Perhaps we can make Hawklord's choice the key end rhyme? Over to you guys again. :)

          I'm not opposed to switching to "turn" as the refrain-rhyme. If Mikey_C and
          HawkLord agree, we should do it.

          In the meantime, here's my next word.

            I'm okay with "turn", if that's the majority view.

            • yep i think turn would be good

              Comment


              • So it is hereby resolved that the refrain word shall be 'turn'.

                We await the next contributions of the Mouser and HawkLord.

                        Is that your contribution? It's a b-rhyme, of course.
                        Which line? :-]

                          I'd have to think about that, so much choice. :)

                            • Here's my next word. Next up: Mikey_C, then HawkLord, then Grey Mouser.

                              Let's just take the words in order from here on. If AndroMan or Kommando
                              or anyone else wish to contribute, I hope they'll ask, and we'll give them turns.
