Friday Fun Day - Crambo aka Bouts Rimés
I think I'll stick with this new game a while. I've got lots of regular photos and rhymes but few abstract photos ans riddles (and I haven't heard any complaints about the switch). Bouts Rimés means "rhymed ends" in French and is a game or challenge where one person (me) makes a list of rhymed words and others (you) write the lines that end with those rhymes, in the same order in which they were given. It was known as Crambo in English and was quite popular in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Will you help me bring back this hip historical habit?
I took this photo while wandering the streets of Valencia. Feel free to use it with your poems.
Above are the words.
Get writing rhyme nerds!
I'll pick a winner early next week.
Be sure to come back and take a peek
