Don’t care if you’re white,
black or browned
or nutty all around
The long or short of it
On plates of paper or china
You are wedded character
Valencia to Carolina
Some like you mild, nice
But I like you wild, rice
Today at dVerse Kim wants us to go WILD with our Quadrille, a poem of exactly 44 words, not including the title. The poem must include the word wild. My muse went a little silly with it.
I’m with you!
Wild rice is delicious, and your quadrille is too! I really love the final lines, with repetition as well as internal and end rhymes. It made me smile. 🙂
Wild rice is delicious indeed. Thank you!
A wonderful grain with so different qualities… I like you kept us from the rice until the end.
Thank you, Björn.
So clever and leaves me laughing in agreement. I like you wild, rice!
I like the rice surprise also, like throwing after a wonderful wedding.
Good one! I smiled at the end. I do agree….wild rice is best! 🙂
It is! Thank you.
Nice comparison between mild and wild rice.
I especially like your closing lines which made me smile.
