A little under the weather myself today, so here's a ditty I wrote a few days ago. This time I wanted to try the Quatrain form, inspired by some wonderful submissions from another of our participants a couple of weeks ago. I failed miserably at that form and will have to work at it. Sadly, I think I ended up with almost a limerick instead. But here it is, nonetheless - offered in a lighter vein.*
A girl knows to look before being seated
To avoid splashing down into water unheated.
Thus I note, part bemused,
When their visit is up
Both grandpa and grandson will leave the seat up.
