since you were so helpful last time…

18 Jun

What’s some words that rhyme with purple? They don’t need to be exact rhymes, so, you know…turtle, hurdle… that kind of thing.

    I actually saw a poet’s rhyme dictionary in the bookshop the other day. This might be something to ask for in your Xmas stocking.

    I remember an American who used ‘Maple Surple’.
    I really liked that, I think it was used in a song.

    Opal?

    I’ve got a copy of the rhyming dictionary somewhere – it’s not as useful as it sounds; it ‘s really only about the ‘masculine’ rhymes.

    I have one rhyming dictionary (the Penguin one I think, just can’t see it right now) and it is always a good start, but as Laura says, a bit limited. It doesn’t have maple surple, for example.

    Or snertle

    And I don’t think it has burble.

    And maybe not circle.

    This has been fun, hasn’t it? And also – for me, at least – quite useful. We might try it again next week.

    So is poetry a new twist in the road for you? Or something that’s been round for a while?

    I’m not a poet (and don’t I knowet)! Actually, I’ve often wondered where poets even begin. I haven’t even tried writing a poem since I was sixteen and writing the kind of thing even dolly wouldn’t publish.

    I was trying to update the school yard taunt ‘purple’s as slow as a turtle’. I seem to have gone to the only public school where purple was a house colour.

    Also, gurgle, herbal and verbal.

    And you could try the Ogden Nash type rhymes: dirt’ll, squirt’ll, Bert’ll, twerp’ll and so on.

    (EG:

    That dirt’ll
    never come out
    of the purple
    grout.

    Wait: Exit Mould!
    I knew it!
    A little squirt’ll
    do it!)

    Etc, ad nauseam. No prizes for guessing who has to clean the bathroom today.

    Blurtle.

    ‘You’ve got purple grout?’

    Poetic license.

    ‘Blurtle’

    Oh, that is beautiful.

    Big Mouth Bob was given to fits of blurtle.
    He’d blurtle even when trying to flirtle.

    A little usurp’ll do it.

    Especially after a slurple.

    Yes, PC, that Tony T does have quite a way with words, doesn’t he?
