Ode on a Grecian Frisbee
by Jack

Thou still unravish'd bride of quietness,
Thou foster-child of Silence and slow Time,
Sylvan historian, who canst thus express
A flowery tale more sweetly than our rhyme:

Well that just sounds silly.
I think I'll do my own.


O* plastic disc,
so sleek and round

You fly on goss'mer wings.

When held aloft
your symbols shine,
like brilliant diamond rings.

And when you soar
I'll follow you
and watch you as you fly.
Until your citrine soul is free...

Oh look. Beans!!!! YUMMMM!!!

*Note: You have to put 'O' instead of 'Oh' so you will know that it is a poem!!
