Abri

When you're looking for an abri,
You may settle for the first you see,
Because you may be running from something scary
Towards a shelter or refuge - an abri.

Every week I rhyme and define a new wacky word.
Come on over to indulge your inner nerd.
And, please let me know of any weird words you've heard.

    1. I'm not sure if that is what you meant, but In French an abri is the shelter you hide in during war time for example.

    2. The definition is from an english dictionary, but it sounds like it came from the French because yes, that is what the poem was saying. :)
