    Both of you made me smile. 🙂 Neat little form…I like it. Thank you!

  3. Memories Pulled

    Softly
    Sadly
    Coldly
    Cruelly
    The wind sighing, softly, sadly, pulls
    Memories back, coldly, cruelly hauls.

    Country and city

    Pretty
    Crappy
    Snooty
    City
    County boy pulls pretty, crappy trick
    On the clueless snooty, city-slick.

    [Hummm. Does ‘city’ here fit Descriptive?
    Sort like ‘county’ bumkin’ ] 🙂

  5. Must Stop

    Countless
    Fruitless
    Hopeless
    Endless
    I’ve shed tears so countless, fruitless, just
    Can’t stop them, they’re hopeless, endless; must!

    SURF- SIDE

    Handy
    Dandy
    Windy
    Sandy
    Surfing is a handy, dandy way
    To fill day at windy, sandy bay.

  7. Savior’s Love

    Freely
    Gladly
    Humbly
    Gently
    He took my sins so freely, gladly; sore
    Abuse stood so humbly; gently bore.

  8. Big smiles here… will be back in a bit…

  9. What’s For Breakfast?

    Funny
    Sunny
    Honey
    Bunny
    Let’s shoot for a funny, sunny deal
    Starting with a honey bunny meal

  10. Wow! You gals were having fun last night, I see! 😀 Remember, your first four lines (your descriptive words) need to rhyme in order to stay true to the form.

    Keep ’em coming!

  12. POETRY

    A crime:
    All rhymes
    Sublime
    In time
    Are forgotten. A crime: all rhymes tossed
    From creation. Sublime? in time, lost.

  13. LOVE OR WHAT?

    Kisses
    Hisses
    Disses
    Wishes.
    It’s up to you. Kisses, hisses? Yick!
    Love or dreaming? Disses, wishes? Pick!

  14. From on the Road

    creamy
    dreamy
    beamy
    steamy
    everlasting creamy, dreamy smiles
    are here on this beamy, steamy mile.

  15. Sorry, the last line should have been:
    “are here on these beamy, steamy miles.”

  16. hocus
    pocus
    crocus
    focus
    using fancy hocus pocus skill
    Kieth gets a crocus focus thrill.

  17. REALITY (TYBURN form)

    Caring
    Sharing
    Bearing
    Wearing
    I want to be caring, sharing life.
    But now I am wearing, bearing strife.

  18. You guys all make it look so easy…Great work

    my brain feels frozen this morning! here goes,

    Very
    Merry
    Cherry
    Sherry
    A very merry day, don’t you think?
    Warmed by a third cherry, sherry drink

    not quite true to all the rules yet, but I’m working on it:)

  19. Wow, what a great group of TYBURN poems! You poets ROCK!

  20. One more attempt…this form is challenging!

    Rushing
    Gushing
    Blushing
    Hushing
    Life’s moments; a rushing, gushing stream
    Its mem’ries a blushing, hushing gleam

    All Show(ing)

    Crowing
    Blowing
    Sowing
    Knowing
    What purpose is this crowing blowing,
    If one is never sowing knowing?

    I almost named this politics, but it’s everywhere, no? This is a fun form, W&M, and I loved both of yours. Be back to read later.

  22. janeshlensky on said:

    Morning

    Singing
    Winging
    Bringing
    Springing
    The morning birds are singing, winging,
    with feathered love they’re bringing springing

  23. janeshlensky on said:

    One more and I quit. Really. Just had to add one more line.

    Dog Days

    seeing
    being
    freeing
    spreeing
    in drowsy light he’s seeing being
    as reason for a freeing spreeing
    (and marking verticals with peeing)

  24. Crushing On You

    Rushing
    Crushing
    Flushing
    Blushing
    Adrenaline rushing; crushing still
    On you; pale cheeks flushing, blushing will.

  25. Slip`ry
    slimy
    slurpy
    sticky
    Orange_ slip`ry, slimy it runs
    round slurpy, sticky chin it churns.

  26. Spring Cleaning
    (Tyburn)

    Dusty
    Musty
    Rusty
    Crusty
    Cleaning up this dusty, musty mess
    So it will be rusty, crusty less

    I’ve read most posted so far and will return for commenting. I hope to get in some more great reading later today. Here’s my effort–a bit of history in this most challenging form.

    Olden Days

    Obscene,
    Cuisine,
    Serene,
    Sabine,
    Taken by Rome, obscene cuisine lives
    As thirsty men’s serene Sabine wives.

  28. The Eye Candy Next Door

    Brandy
    Handy
    Dandy
    Candy
    She often kept brandy handy now,
    since he moved in – dandy candy, wow!

  29. At the Bar

    Beauty
    Snooty
    Booty
    Duty
    She was a blond beauty, snooty true
    who was prowling booty duty, you?

  31. Relationships

    Sadly
    Badly
    Madly
    Gladly
    It all ended sadly, badly true
    but now she loves madly, gladly you.

  32. Immortal

    Knitting
    Fleeting
    Sitting
    Cheating
    She spent every knitting, fleeting breath
    in living rooms, sitting, cheating death.

    Reminder: He’s Just Not That Into You…

    Caring
    Baring
    Bearing
    Tearing

    Hurry and hide caring, baring eyes,
    Subdue, muffle bearing, tearing sighs…

  34. In the Jacuzzi – A Doozy of a Tale

    Woozy
    Boozy
    Bluesy
    Floozy
    Poor Suzy…so woozy, so boozy –
    and not choosy. One bluesy floozy.

      Where is your 9th beat? See W & M examples, and rules 🙂

      • I did. I’m not sure what you mean. The final two lines each have 9 syllables in them. ???

        • Marjory M Thompson (MMT) on said:

          Sorry you are right 9 beats, however…

          In line five – beat 5,6,7 &8 come from
          the line one (2 beats) plus
          the second line ( two beats)
          followed with the 9th beat (one beat)….’is’

          Line six is the same setup using
          the line three (2 beats) and Line four
          followed with the final 9th beat….’whiz’

          the 9th 1-beat of lines five and six are to rhymn (But are not the lines 1,2,3 or 4 which are each two beats.)

          —–Woozy
          —–Boozy
          —–Bluesy
          —–Floozy
          —-Poor Suzy…so woozy, so boozy –
          —-and not choosy. One bluesy floozy

          5- Poor Suzy while woozy, boozy is
          6- choosy, she’s a bluesy, floozy whiz.

          • Oh … yep. I see what you’re saying now, Marjory. The first four lines (our two-syllable rhyming words) are supposed to be used as the 5th-through-8th syllables in our final two 9-syllable lines. You’re right!

            But RJ, your poems are oh-so-fun anyway! 😀

          • Marjory M Thompson (MMT) on said:

            Yes, I think the hardest part is thinking up ‘what’ to poem about. Have been delighted with the various subject-matter selected and used. It is a delightful little form.

    • claudsy on said:

      hahaha, that one will stay with me for a while, RJ. Thanks.

    • Oh, this is a fun one for sure. Thanks for the laugh.

  35. Missing: One iPhone and USB Cable

    Sapless
    Hapless
    Strapless
    App-less
    A techno-geek was sapless, hapless.
    iPhone unsecured: Strapless. App-less.

  37. Fun form Walt & Marie! Loved yours…here’s my effort….
    ———————————————————————–

    BAD REPS

    Chilling
    drilling
    billing
    filling
    With their high-cost chilling drilling works
    dentists get reps as billing filling jerks.

  38. Here’s mine, but for the record, I found this form difficult!

    A Tyburn

    pretty
    giddy
    witty
    ditty
    Proud of herself, pretty giddy, she
    has written a witty ditty, see?

  39. Stinkin
    Thinkin
    Winkin
    Blinkin
    Start with the stinkin thinkin – disgrace,
    that leads to the winkin, blinkin –base!

  40. Harder than it looks, eh Bloomers? 😉 It strikes me funny that there are more broken (we’ll say bended) rules for this form than any other one so far. But fun anyhow! 😀

  41. I Wish…

    Crazy
    Fazey
    Hazy
    Lazy
    The end of a crazy, fazey day
    Is spent in a hazy, lazy way.

  42. Henrietta Choplin on said:

    Subtle Touch

    Rushing
    Crushing
    Hushing
    Blushing

    Snow blankets…non-rushing~crushing dance
    Sweetness falls in hushing~blushing trance…

    I’m high jacking my Mom’s account:

    LEGEND

    Heater
    Cedar
    Meter
    Jeter

    Wind up…it’s a Heater! Cedar swings…
    ball hits parking Meter! Jeter grins.

    It’s my Mom’s fault. She got me hooked 🙂

    [Mom wants him in the garden too.] :0

  44. Spurning

    Burning
    Churning
    Turning
    Spurning

    Do not give me burning, churning love.
    That will get a spurning, turning shove.
