I have always had a soft spot,
For the word smattering,
No, honestly, Eugenia, it is true l kid you not,
…. not just saying so for idle chattering,
Either, or to display that l have got …
The knack of using the smatter word in a bantering,
Way, or to prove that off the trot,
I can angle the smatter’in a flattering,
Style of carefree thought!
It’s just that l have always found the word,
Smattering a sophisticated approach to smithery,
One that has the ability without any blurred or slurred,
… dictions that are Contradictory!
No, that’s not the inclusion of an absurd,
… statement either. It is just crafted trickery!
To state the absolute obviousness of the softest catchword,
Or, to coin your phrase, creativity,
That’s the beauty of the proper word witchery word,
Which is the intricate loveliness of smattering,
Reminding me that when raindrops land and are scattering,
Across their merry ways, they are both seen and heard.
Smattering reminds me of rainfall on a misty morning,
… and that’s all from this gentle word,
Which is always so wonderfully charming.
Thank you to all that participated! I appreciate you!
