Giggle Quadrille for dVerse

A study in squares
Four by four
They go
Ho ho ho ho
Books on a frosty morn
As I proceed to my pond
Scribbles over the aircon
It looks a bit forlorn
Ho ho ho ho
The tiny legs made
Me giggle though


This is a Quadrille written for the dVerse poetry prompt. A Quadrille is a poem of 44 words (not counting the title) and this week’s prompt was to write one that included the word ‘giggle’. Right after I read the prompt, I happened to look back on the four photos I took today, which were, randomly, all squares. 4×4 and 44 lines – it seemed too perfect!


  1. I liked those tiny legs. I wonder what happened to the top part. I see you have these roadside libraries where people can exchange books in your first photo.

  2. I love the tiny legs too. I wonder where she had been going before the ‘accident’ happened…
    Kind regards
    Anna :o]
