Allegro

The prompt at Real Toads is to use the word Allegro in a poem, to restrict the poem to eight lines, and to write it in one minute.

One minute.
One word.
"Allegro!"
But it takes me one minute
to de-fog my glasses,
and de-fogging my brain
is no longer possible.
Oops! Out of lines.

  3. Love it Sherrie! A poem in one minute is quite a challenge! I don't know that I would even get all eight lines in that time!

  4. Eight or nine lines, it's still a fine poem. :)
