Ovillejo for 2011

What rhymes with eleven?
            Heaven?*
Seven?**  Andre Previn?***
            Chevin?****
That’s not a lot, I fear.
            Don’t jeer,
since I will volunteer
my wish that eleven
brings good stuff as I pen
            these words: Happy New Year!

_______________________________________________

A couple of notes:

*Heaven – a place you hope you’ll end up if you were good.
**Andre Previn – famous composer, pianist and conductor, married a bunch of times to different women, including Mia Farrow.
 ***Seven – a number after six but before 8, unless you count in Base 6, in which case, the number is – yep, you guessed it, eleven!  Is that cool or what?
****Chevin – a sans-serif font as well as a Star Wars creature.
