Amusing! I can just imagine a Hobbit spouting that at the pub after a few pints.

I can definitely imagine that rhyme being chanted by Shire children... maybe during hopscotch or jump-rope.

Yes, those would be appropriate activities for that little quatrain, I think. Thanks, Shirebound.

Sorry it turned out so short, but I'd been working so on the last chapter of "In Empty Lands," and let it sort of hold most of my attention for a while. Thanks, Linda.

I'm so glad you think so. This one worked for a short quatrain, at least. Thanks!

It might be a short poem, but what a delight!

I suspect it's one of the shortest I've written, but am glad people enjoyed it anyway. Thanks!
