I am filled with love
It moves like fluttering birds
In my beating heart

              A limerick

There once was a Bichon named Ted
Who liked to run under the bed.
When we called her name
She chose to remain
And had to be swept out instead.

Articulate

  1. Did I ever mention how hugely annoying it is that when I’m doing my posts, I can’t just put in spaces and other formatting and have them show up??? And then when I finally find the “space” symbol in HTML and put it in, the preview shows it correctly but when I got back to edit anything, “it” takes out all the spacing again??? I worked for over half an hour trying to get the spaces correct on the first poem and then when I published it, they were gone, so I had to go in again at least a couple times. Why can’t it just format the way I put it in??

    Never heard of a “name poem” before, but like yours a lot. Will have to give it a try.

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
