It’s often been said that there are no words in the English language that rhyme with orange, silver, purple or month. So, here’s a hastily crafted poem, that has absolutely nothing to do with psychology or coaching, it’s just a bit of fun:
Orange, Silver, Purple and Month
I clambered up the Blorenge
Dressed in brightest orange
Against the barren silver
I spied a graceful chilver
I lost my horse’s curple,
Amonsgt the heather, purple.
But to find a rhyme for month, I must admit is uneath.
- The Blorenge – a hill in Wales
- Chilver – female lamb
- Curple – a strap under a horse’s saddle, (or buttocks)
- Uneath – archaic, means “scarcely, with difficulty” but is pronounced to rhyme with month
