Oh Bother! – A Quadrille in Ovillejo Form

What if you need a workout?
Runs out!
Finger stained blue and pink
Of ink
Not as tidy as your mother
Oh bother!

I rather be a good author

Writing mind blowing poems
One from whom creativity stems
Runs out of ink, oh bother!


The Ovillejo form which I found and learned earlier this week, and wrote a triplet of. This time in Quadrille form, so a fewer syllables to accommodate the maximum word count of 44 words.

Read this 2016 dVerse post for more information about Ovillejo.

    1. Thank you! And it was because of that article I had to try to write one in Quadrille form even if it meant a bit fewer syllables. 😀
      Love the treasure trove of knowledge that’s in the dVerse archives. 🙏
