A nonsense poem: The love of Orpius was Joysome

Updated on December 13, 2012

Orpius sat upon a grund with outstretched eyelings hurly-dripped.

Bedown his speckley probus ran the glister-rain and sadly plipped,

Into below a farsheth stream of bubble tongue-ed woosh of woe.

Gralurgling beraidedly in wend between his fronded toes.

Starkly lone he wabled there and turned his bassit head about

Stremaking all his yawnyness that boasted scent of trout.

Joysome further long was bent, and striding purposefully,

Ooloos in her wurphy hair did flutter, pitch and goolie.

Then bescried the lump-ed shape of Orpius upon his round,

She hissuped, mostly waned with shock, then zephred to his ground.

Strothy fingers, soft and wurphus, straggled kindly in his crag.

Orpius’ eye wide rounded, gazed upon the pretty hag.

Gooey mindedly they swont for each of other’s hirtig,

They warmness wrapped and foldy robed each other’s whirlygig.

Joysome lurbled pootily inside her stongham thoughts,

Shared with Orpius the wurph that hurly eyes had caught.

Intertwining outstretched eyelings dawned and brightly shone

Then lo the Whurphing Pib was born, a happy Orpius son.

      Very interesting. The nonsense words flow so well with the real words that it is almost impossible to separate the two. A rather nice use for nonsense.

      Thank you for the kind comment midget38! I haven't written any poetry in quite a while and the fun one can have with nonsense poetry in particular is quite simply a joy! It's good to be back at it again! :)
