Always sure to do a good turn
Though not having money to burn
A favour for free

Always sure to do a good turn
Though not having money to burn
A favour for free
I'm sure you'll agree

Always sure to do a good turn
Though not having money to burn
A favour for free
I'm sure you'll agree
Is worth the gratitude you’ll earn

Another first line to ponder
What shall I write I do wonder
I'm not erudite

Juliet27 Wed 21-Oct-20 22:05:41

What shall I write I do wonder
I'm not erudite
And not a playwright

Another first line to ponder
What shall I write I do wonder
I`m not erudite
And certainly don`t bite

Another first line to ponder
What shall I write I do wonder
I`m not erudite
And certainly don`t bite
But I am inclined to maunder

I must try to get to the point

Juliet27 Thu 22-Oct-20 13:32:16

I must try to get to the point
And make sure my thoughts don’t disjoint

crazyH Thu 22-Oct-20 13:36:52

I must try to get to the point
And make sure my thoughts don’t disjoint
My mind does wander

Jangran99 Thu 22-Oct-20 17:25:54

I must try to get to the point
And make sure my thoughts don’t disjoint
My mind does wander
I tend to maunder

Grany Thu 22-Oct-20 18:49:10

I must try to get to the point
And make sure my thoughts don’t disjoint
My mind does wander
I tend to maunder
But I'm so becoming adroit

I made a chocolate sponge cake

Jangran99 Thu 22-Oct-20 18:53:09

I made a chocolate sponge cake
It’s now in the oven to bake

Grany Thu 22-Oct-20 19:22:51

I made a chocolate sponge cake
It’s now in the oven to bake
I've whipped double cream

Jangran99 Thu 22-Oct-20 19:27:06

I made a chocolate sponge cake
It’s now in the oven to bake
I've whipped double cream
It will taste a dream

Juliet27 Fri 23-Oct-20 15:19:06

I made a chocolate sponge cake
It’s now in the oven to bake
I've whipped double cream
It will taste a dream
This diet I’ll have to forsake

I really do miss hearing planes

crazyH Fri 23-Oct-20 16:23:38

I really do miss hearing planes
Seeing them up there, unless it rains

lovebeigecardigans1955 Fri 23-Oct-20 16:54:41

I really do miss hearing planes
Seeing them up there, unless it rains
We just have our dreams

Juliet27 Fri 23-Oct-20 18:07:12

I really do miss hearing planes
Seeing them up there, unless it rains
We just have our dreams
But restricted schemes

I really do miss hearing planes
Seeing them up there, unless it rains
We just have our dreams
But restricted schemes
Allow us to hear birds in lanes.

Autumn sunshine glows

As first lines start with 8 syllables I hope you don’t mind that I’ve changed it a bit

The autumn sunshine, how it glows

Jangran99 Sat 24-Oct-20 08:19:20

The autumn sunshine, how it glows
But that autumn wind, how it blows

lovebeigecardigans1955 Sat 24-Oct-20 08:22:26

The autumn sunshine, how it glows
But that autumn wind, how it blows
Leaves all need sweeping

Juliet27 Sat 24-Oct-20 10:33:14

The autumn sunshine, how it glows
But that autumn wind, how it blows
Leaves all need sweeping
Hedgehogs are sleeping

The autumn sunshine, how it glows
But that autumn wind, how it blows
Leaves all need sweeping
Hedgehogs are sleeping
How they manage it, heaven knows.

I wish that I could hibernate
