Oh! On that fair Wednesday.
The one that came and went,
Yes, On that lovely Wednesday,
That bump hath spent.

It came out of nowhere.
A fluke, so to say
But I learnt many a lesson,
On the road that day.

Riding home,
On the noblest of steeds.
Just a normal day.
Until I felt the heed
Of my poor pony,
Partaking in an abrupt heave.

My face turnith tomato.
As I waited for the lad.
I waited silently.
I couldn’t help but feel bad.

His poor steed lay unscratched.
Thank goodness!
It was my lucky day!
I hadn't even made a mess!
Hip hip hooray!

With many Ado
We both road onward,
Into the blue.

I really like how you wrote it like it was in the medieval times, saying 'steed' and using old words. Very entertaining!

Funny, and wonderfully written.

Could you please read some of my work, rate, and tell me what you think (especially my poem "Secrets")?
