A little mouse sings in a bowl
A little fish runs on a wheel
A little worm hops in a hole
Great fun a ten Bob

O.K. you have tried to do something here and you call it nonsense. O.K. I go with that........arya......blessings and more sense.........arya
I enjoyed your Villanelle! Not an easy poem to write.
Awesome poem. Alison, modern sensibility has reached to such an extent that it generally appears more sensible when we talk nonsense, like Shakespearean fool.
A lovely little villanelle. I teach a poetry class at Hagerstown Community College and would like to use your poem along with a brief biography of the poet. It would make a lovely contrast to “A Voice in the Scented Night” by H. Austin Dobson. The bio goes something like this: Poet: _ Born: _ Date: _ State: _ Started writing poetry at age: _ Working at present: _

weird. it made perfect sense to me! -chuck
i like the freedom of this poem. there should be more poems like this one!
a little write fills a great heart. it's not silly but pretty.nice work allie!
From your ever pal,
I love this poem, and that's not nonsense!
Very funny :)) An ostensible nonsense, the humour is actually often in the absurd, therefore the poem is very humorous really. I just imagine 'A little mouse sings in a bowl' :)) ...
One of the most sensible poems you have writtan... so far
I agree, definately nonsense, but good for laughs.
A lovely piece Alison, made me giggle. Thanks for sharing. Love Andrew x
LOVED IT! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! What a brilliant write, nice and oddly crazy which one likes to be occasionally! ! Hey Ho, fiddledee dee. I think this poem is working for me.

A no nonsense, nonsense villanelle if I'm not mistaken! How clever! Great run of wacky images all flowing with an effortless ease that makes them appear quite believable - I imagined each and every one! Not sure who would be more proud, Edward Lear or Dylan Thomas! A touch of Allie Cassidy magic here for sure! Enchanting... j xx
bit of fun and why not.
A fun to read though a burn to the head! Makes me smile too! A 10.
Allie, I was away when you put this up or I would have caught it sooner. Never mind I caught this whimsical bit of nonsense which brought a smile to my face. Top marks and thanks for brightening up my morning.
Love David xxxx
