  1. The Day's Advance

    Early morning abhorrence
    Still too tired to dance
    Just imagining sweet romance
    In the realm of a daydream, perchance

    Armed with coffee and circumstance
    The silence before the rants
    Of the do's and don'ts and can'ts
    Strictly through observance

    Every day another chance
    To hold my ground, keep solid my stance
    Be brave and thrust my lance
    Another day's performance

    But not before each morning's abeyance
    So I may review my inner surveillance

  2. Abeyance in France

    while in France
    i held in abeyance
    a chance
    for dalliance

    as i glance
    even at a distance
    he had no arrogance
    nor ignorance

    hmnn, love his fragrance
    and his stance
    well balance
    he's also a man of substance

    [no past tense for the rhyme]

  3. Ambition

    Abeyance holds my hand
    In his pleasure I dwell
    We walk down the sandy strand
    and he gives me a shell
    Yet I dream of freedom
    Movement is my desire
    So I end our we-dom
    In order to go higher

  4. When Ms. Abeyance met Mr. Abstinence
    They started a puzzling dance.
    Not now, no.
    Maybe later, you know.
    I don't think it's a good idea.
    I'll go recite an Ave Maria.
    It went on for a while
    all denial and absence,
    Until in a sea of lack
    they decided to cut some slack
    and indulge in a weekend for two
    on the shores of Lake I'llHaveYou.

  5. Do you love me, love me true,
    And will you still, when love's not new?
    Not for us is love's abeyance
    Two souls but only one conveyance

    For us it took a single glance
    To light the fuse of our romance
    I'll be your daisy, be my tree,
    But don't get down on bended knee

    For I don't need formality
    Just give me eccentricity
    Be yourself and so will I
    Thus grows the apple of our eye

    In time to come when we grow old
    When all around us has grown cold
    Our love will keep us fresh and warm
    As if tomorrow's not yet come

    Not for us is love's abeyance
    Two souls but only one conveyance
    You'll be me and I'll be you
    On a bicycle made for two

  6. Twenty-six Extra-Silly Rhymes After Viewing A Film

    This film review will proceed without abeyance
    While we consider the film maker's brilliance

    Is it good planning or just a coincidence
    That his most popular films are full of decadence

    With exquisite elegance
    We absorb dreamlike fragments

    The hero bravely holds no grievance
    All his tribulations are happenstance

    The scenery is full of iridescence
    Inspiring a mood of jubilance

    And you can't go wrong with kittens
    Or a pair or soulful laments

    The heroine exudes magnificence
    and demonstrates a certain nonchalance

    And since the director has omniscience
    The audience must have patience

    Has a film ever shown such quintessence?
    It treats its themes with reverence

    No critic could possibly write a bad sentence
    Except of the scene about thermoluminescence

    In fact I overheard an utterance
    That this film is full of vraisemblance

    And the audience did not even wince
    At the opening scene's xenotransplants

    In closing, this film will give you yens
    For riding in high-tech zeppelins
