Friday Fun Day - Crambo aka Bouts Rimés - Swirl

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?

  1. She breaks my heart, a wrathful swirl,
    without her near my minds a twirl.

    Suddenly my mood starts a change,
    before to long I'm feeling strange.

    When she was near the day was bright,
    but now keeps her distance, as a kite.

Rhyming or not, I would like a lot to hear the thoughts my words brought...
