A Springtime Ride

This post was written in 8 minutes.
This poem was written in my head while driving from South Paris to South China (from Paris to China without leaving the state...only in Maine!). At first the poem was only four lines long, and I was going to post a comment after explaining the proper way to read it...but then I thought of a better way.

Some people talk on cell phones while they drive...not me, I have other ways to distract myself. :)

I wrote this poem today as I did ride
Over roads so rough I thought I would surely die.
And each pothole is where all of my accents fell
Which is why the meter does not work very well.

(And now that I'm home again, let me explain:
To understand fully please read it again,
And imagine a pothole disrupted my jaunt
Each time that you find an italicized font.)

And each pothole is where all of my accents fell
Which is why the meter does not work very well.

"Some people talk on cell phones while they drive...not me, I have other ways to distract myself. :)"

That's slightly disturbing. :-P :-)

Hey, when I'm writing poems I might be tapping my hand on my leg to keep rhythm, but at least I'm not punching numbers into a phone...that's just not safe!

Hmmm...there should probably be a poem ab0ut THAT! :)
