Sunday Song & Rhyme: Nov 26 - Dec 9

       Sunday Song & Rhyme: Nov 26 - Dec 9

Welcome to the Outlawz Sunday Song & Rhyme Challenge!

 

A big thank you to everyone for their entries last challenge. We do enjoy seeing how everyone interprets the song/Rhyme! They were all fantastic!

 

To play in this challenge you do not have to follow the Song/Rhyme to the letter. We only ask that you find something in the song or rhyme to inspire your card/project and that you tell us what your inspiration was in your blog post. (This is required to be eligible for the prize)

 

This challenge has no sponsors, but you do have the opportunity to win a top 3 or honorable mention badge. Also, you can still enter your card (one only) to The Outlawz Challenges for a chance at a prize from one of our sitewide sponsors!

 

Now on to the challenge!

 

Our Song/Rhyme this fortnight is from Jane 

The Calendar by Barbara-Euphan-Todd


The Calendar

I knew when Spring was come –
Mot by the murmurous hum
Of bees in the willow-trees,
Or frills
Of daffodils.
Or the scent of the breeze;
But because there were whips and tops
By the jars of lollipops
In the two little village shops.

I knew when Summer breathed –
Not by flowers that wreathed
The sedge by the water’s edge,
Or gold
Of the Wold,
Or white and rose of the hedge;
But because in a wooden box
In the window at Mr’s Mack’s
There were white-winged shuttlecocks.

I knew when Autumn came –
Not by the crimson flame
Of leaves that lapped the eaves
Or mist
In amethyst
And opal tinted weaves;
But because there were alley-taws
(Punctual as hips and haws)
On the counter at Mrs. Shaw’s.

I knew when Winter swirled –
Not by the whitened world,
Or silver skeins in the lanes
Or frost
That embossed
In patterns on window-panes;
But because there were transfer sheets
By the bottles of spice and sweets
In the shops in two little streets.

Inspired by "But because there were alley-taws

(Punctual as hips and haws)

Alley-taws is a marble game.  I am Mrs Shaw

Window and shops are also mentioned in the rhyme.
