Ramblin' Rosie napowrimo #27

Feeble and occasionally a bit foppish

Entertains with Congo music from a distant land

Big bells and drums, funky men in hula skirts

Rabbits hopping in the garden eating up the carrots

Under an umbrella sipping mint tea from a tall frosted glass

Aristocratic and well read, a novelist by trade

Rosemarie Rutherford from the shores of Montezuma

Yawns when you get near

  10. Wherever you spend your Februaries, I want to go there too!

    This was fun, the images clashing and tripping over each other but the whole they create is bright and full of life.

  20. from Therese B -- In most of the lines in this poem, you manage to include at least two words (first word, as well as a second one) which begin with the acrostic letter. Well done!
