Saturday Centus - 09/17/11 Jenny Matlock's Lost Her Mind!

Jenny Matlock's gone off the deep end...or, considering today's prompt, maybe I should say that she's lost her gourd!


Today's challenge? Write your post to the tune of 'Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star (written My Mozart when he was just a lad).


Thirty-two words, nothing naughty. Can include a picture. As usual, the prompt appears below, in bold text.


A Poem Marking the Arrival of Fall
In the Autumn

Leaves will fall
Maple, oak birch – I’ve seen them all
Clogging gutters, covering streets
Crunching loudly ‘neath my feet
Football, Halloween – time for fun
I’m Glad Autumn has begun!
