My 1st Envelope Quintet
(a d’Verse Quadrille)
“What a bother,” she thought, as she licked the stamp, “We needn’t bother with snail mail nowadays, but Gramps can’t be bothered to use a PC, so I’ll humor his sweet, old, bothersome ways.” She knew he’d relish her letter, under his favorite lamp.
Come “bother” up a poem
The quadrille is simply a poem of 44 words (excluding the title), and it can take any form. This week’s challenge was to use the word “bother” in a quadrille.
This piece is entirely fictional; the subject was inspired by the name of this poetic form. Also, I found the featured image only after completing the poem itself.
