Saturday Mix – Lucky Dip, 26 January 2019

Welcome to the Saturday Mix – Lucky Dip, 26 January 2019!

For this week’s Lucky Dip, I have reached into my mystery bag and pulled out a Tongue Twister. The topic is up to you!

You may be thinking to yourself, What on earth is a Tongue Twister?

Luckily, Shadow Poetry has an explanation…

Tongue Twister

A Tongue Twister poem is made up of lines/verses that are hard to say when read aloud by using similar consonant sounds in succession (use of alliteration). In other words, the poem ties your tongue into knots. This form does not require end or internal rhyme.

Example of a Tongue Twister

Example #1
Serenity
Mystic moonlight, moments meet... 
Softly, somewhere songbirds sweet... 
Simple, soothing, soulful sounds... 
Mem'ries murmer, mossy mound... 
Wander wistful, winding ways 
Linger, loving, lilacs lay... 
Lazy langour, listless leaves... 
Weeping willow, wonder weaves... 
Pausing, picture, pristine plain... 
Ruling romance, restive reign... 
Rising rapture, rustic ride... 
Perfect pleasure, peace presides...

Example #2:
Six Pink Minks And Finks
six pink minks think finks stink
six finks think pink minks stink
six minks in creeks with finks stink
if six pink minks pick stinking ink  finks

if six pink minks had six sticks
with six pink ink finks in six creeks
then six minks and six finks
would have sixty six pink minks and six ink finks

then sixty six pink minks 
and sixty six ink finks 
would make six ink finks stink
cause six pink minks make finks stink

    I am linking a poem, that isn’t as desperately tongue twisting as the examples, but just try to read it out loud swiftly…. I know I never can without stumbling….. I hope it is acceptable for this prompt
