Undulating ungulates

I wrote a poem titled alphabeasts quite a while ago.

The letters u, v, w, x are here:

Undulating ungulates
veer vivaciously
wondering why whales
xerox xylophones

It turns out that whales and orcas and dolphins are ungulates, along with hoofed mammals. That is a surprise to me. Amazing what I learn regarding the Ragtag Daily Prompt.

Today the prompt is ungulate.

  1. What a cook poem!!! I love the illustrations your mom did, too!

    Did you do the artwork, too? It’s wonderful!

  3. I learn something new every day. I did not know about marine ungulates. Hearing your poem, I think you would like (and probably already know) Edward Gorey’s “Gashleycrumb Tinies”, which begins “A is for Amy who fell down the stairs.” My favorite is “N is for Neville who died of ennui.”

      And my name is Kate, killed with an az. I love Edward Gorey! Earlier than that I had a book of Edward Lear’s poems. He did alphabet poems as well as limericks.
