And we hope to continue for a really long time!

'Happily ever after' is our lofty goal
Such dreams for a thread just one day old
Yet what is life without high ideals
So c'mon posters, heed our appeals!

Linguists you are
This post has come far
I'm mighty impressed
You're all lyrically blessed

One must ask, as a mod,
Is it something in the air
That creates rhymes so fair?

Verily there's something in the air,
It feels like the wind in my hair.
But wait, what's that upon the wind?
An eagle strong soars on its wing.

Way down below, clamouring for bait
There, babies of the jay, are eight.
While looking like a Yankee doodle,
A billy goat munches its noodle.

Inside a house, snuggling his beau,
A movie buff shouts "Nikita, go!"
Observing him, she woefully rues
"He is no intellectual's muse."

:D

Reading rhymes at leisure
Is always a pleasure.

I come back here as a voyeur
Feeling happy for there's no Rapture
But I have difficulty
In catching up with thee... :P

Asian Geekette, so good to see you!
Guess I survived the Rapture too.
If you want to catch up with me,
You'll have to add a post or three :)

Catch up is the name of the game...
Continuing to rhyme will get you fame,
Its time to put the Rapture behind thee...
Cause the best is yet to be!
For those who fight for it, life has a flavor the sheltered will never know.

This post needs erecting
As opposed to neglecting
I'll throw in some prose
Like an old English rose

Now I'll graze on my grass
Without being crass
As Wind in my hair
Can be quite contraire

The old English rose again he blooms
Those lovely petals he vainly grooms
In hopes that Mary so contrary
Into his garden bring maids so pretty

For yes, this garden's been neglected
The poor English rose lays heavily nectared
So let the maidens put on their dresses
And grudgingly get off their asses!

BillyB was erecting his post
The sight of it is
what left me rather grossed.

The scent of the rose-garden
might salve my vapours
or perhaps a day out at the coast?

looking out yonder
no beach in sight
there is one tho,
you might see cargo boats passing by

so go forth and wander
in the rose garden you banter
no time to waste
the monsoons come hither

I came to check on Billy's erection,
And find it didn't last very long.
So it's time again for resurrection,
Let not this post be a swansong!
