Friday Fun Day - Crambo aka Bouts Rimés - A View

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?

Through

Light
 
 
Above are the words.
Get writing rhyme nerds!
There will be no winner. This is just for fun
and the joy of rhyming a smile for everyone.

  2. Here is a personal view,
    a topic I have thought through.
    When you stroll on a walk,
    as you try to have a talk,
    Do you use a phone? It isn't bright.
    When you stumble, you'll see the light.

  3. Obscured view?
    Just push through.
    Walk the walk.
    Talk the talk.
    Grow. Glow bright.
    Go toward the light!

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