Sunday Whirl (Wordle #264) presents a list of words
that we must incorporate in a writing piece.
The words this week are a challenging lot:
lightness, bee, cuttlefish, flake, sparkle, shine,
mutable, veiled, precise, ignorant, tapestry, threat
The table was set up so neatly,
The cakes on crystal stands,
The tableware all sparkled
And displayed the best of brands.
They sat together and sipped nice tea
Though neither one had hands.
The cuttlefish had set the table
And also made the cake
The bee admired its lightness
And the skill it took to bake,
She compared it most precisely
To a delicate snowflake.
“Little bee, I do love thee so,
May I take your hand, um leg?
I want you to be my wife,
Agree to this, I beg!
The little bee was so greatly taken
She blushed a deep deep red.
Life they say is mutable,
It changes day by day.
While the ignorant may laugh and point
In a threatening sort of way,
The little bee and her cuttlefish
Were married on a sleigh.
The minister was a reindeer,
With a nose of oddish red,
The little bee wore a tu-tu
And a veil upon her head.
The cuttlefish wore a waistcoat
But refused to leave his bed.
The sun shone upon the group
And upon those who were not there,
The happy couple swapped their vows
And read poems by Voltaire
While a beaver wove a tapestry
To catch the whole affair.
