Just finishing off this little bit of fun:

A is a wonderful letter, it’s true,

Although it sounds like a question, 'Eh?',

Or something misheard,

It begins not only Apple and Adam

But Adventure and Absurd.

It’s Awesome, Astonishing, Amazing too.

An At & As Are All crucial small words

And with And it links me & you!

I'm rather pleased with the second line here:

It’s Awesome, Astonishing Amazing too

And with And it links me & you.

An At & As (Are All) crucial small words

Just musing about what to write and the earliest books we read came to mind.  That set me thinking about the letter A and the words it begins.  So, just for fun and because it's summer, here goes with a whimsical bit of verse.

A is a wonderful letter it’s true
Although it sounds like a question,

'Eh?

Or something misheard...

It begins not only Apple and Adam
But Adventure and Absurd.

Absurd came to me perhaps because of the rhyme but I wasn't looking for one. Now it's there, though, I can work with it.
