It happened once
I don’t know where
Perhaps a dream
I know ’twas fair
About an heir who played in air
Around her flew two doves, a pair
At night they slept in a tree, a pear
With moonlight blankets of silver flair
Morning flood sunlight bare
Warm on feathers, as on hair
Heir climbed down, walked to the square
Found coffee, rolls, and people there
They asked, “Dear One, live you earth or air?”
She giggled, said, “Neither here nor there.
I go where love doves lead me fair
Once I landed on a bear.”

This week I am introducing a new challenge to the Saturday Mix – ‘Rhyme Time‘.
‘Rhyme Time’ focuses on the use of rhyme to build your writing piece. You will be given six rhyming words* and need to use all of them (but not limited to these) in your response, which should be a poetry form of your choice.
*Homophones can be used as alternatives to the challenge words.
Our rhyming words this week are:
- bare (or bear)
- flare (or flair)
- pair (or pear)
- fair (or fare)
