Wordsmith — Help Finish Tom’s Lyrics!


What is Wordsmith?

By popular demand, Wordsmith is back! Once again, Tom wrote a verse of what might be a song someday, and he’s stuck with a bad case of writer’s block. Please help Tom by contributing the next verse.

Rules—Pretty simple! Create a 4-line verse that makes sense after Tom’s first verse. Follow the same pattern Tom has established:

  1. Use the same meter (word-rhythm: accents and syllables)
  2. Use the same rhyme-scheme — that is, AABB…meaning line 1 rhymes with line 2, and line 3 rhymes with line 4.
  3. Take care of your shoes!

The Song So Far…

The winner will receive a set of handwritten lyrics from Tom!
