Flip-flap-flip-flap-flippetty-fling,
books go flying zig…zag…zing.
Words are all a-clink, a-clatter.
In my dream, there’s naught a-matter.
Fwoosh! A novel buzzes ‘round,
blurting out each verb and noun!
Next, some poems play with patter.
Words are all a-clink, a-clatter.
Bam! I clap my hands while trilling,
“Ding! Dang! Dong! It’s all quite thrilling!”
Cream-white paper, inky spatter…
In my dream, there’s naught a-matter.
Giggle, giggle! Themes now mingle.
Flying tomes give me a tingle.
Oh, so fun, this chitterchatter!
In my dream, there’s naught a-matter.

Notes:  The form is Kyrielle. The poem was inspired by the above picture in conjunction with the prompt of Onomatopoeia from Phoenix Rising Poetry Guild.

  1. I’ve never heard of Kyrielle before. If that’s what it is this one is particularly cling clang clattery and great fun.
