Meter: Aye, Ambic, the Five-Footed Cat! — a Poem

 

A brindled mouser scampered up the drive

In search of mousies to keep her alive

O when a mouser is out and about

the mousies stay a-hiding without doubt

Okay, it’s not my forte!  Frank at dVerse is just plain mean-spirited, asking us to do Iambic Pentameter (cue the Vincent Price background organ music)!  But I think I did it.  It’s not pretty, but there it is.
