Remember remember the fifth of November
Gunpowder, treason and plot.
I see no reason why gunpowder, treason
Should ever be forgot…
Now it has a rhythm to it – yes? Your challenge this week is to write something with the same rhythm using only 21 words that include ‘ …in winter we shiver…‘ Easy!”
Once I started the challenge, I couldn’t stop, so here are three variations:
Version I: Seasonal Silliness
Whatever the weather in winter we shiver
Whenever the wind does blow
‘Tis the season, surpassing reason
Making men from snow.
Version II: Celebrating the Season
In winter we shiver, limbs all a-quiver
Whenever winds do blow
Still many a reason, a smiling season;
Stupendous sparkly snow.
Version III: Season of Doom
Come hither children, in winter we shiver
as death creeps ever in.
Play, play, forever; undefeatable never
for seasons always win.
