Peaceful Prairies Poetry

When it comes to testing of your brain,You can work it out with a scrabble game!Maybe sudoku’s up your line,Or crossword’s how you pass your time!Perhaps when spelling your escapades,A word search is how you escape!Wordle seems so hard to some,To others it’s a bit of fun!But if you want to catch a phrase,A game like these might pass your days!Or they might boggle up your head ,Scrabbling up your thoughts instead!One thing for sure, it taxes a bit,To spin them around so the words all fit!Don’t get caught in a jeopardy,When you say a family feud is not for me!Just tackle a game of ole bingo,And let your thoughts upwords go!When it comes to words of my mouth,I pray dear Lord, they don’t go south;And let my thoughts, pleasing be,I know each one, dear Lord you see!For Lord you are my strength today,So help me watch the words I say!.dbs.
