Single syllable stories

February 15, 2008 4:44pm CST
Hi all, can you write a story entirely of single syllable words of 200 words or less. I think this is a marvelous exercise especially with such a tight deadline of words. Look forward to your replies, regards, J.

Don't cry... (-one breath at a time-) How much could you cry for the one you love? You miss her, that's true, but is it hard to see that love is not to cry for? Love is just to bring you joy and bright stars in your night, it is to bring a smile on your pink face and is just to bring you more...more love. Well...dream on and cry your tears, when you could face your joy, that is to be loved. (I won't count the words, but i made sure each of them would take just one breath to say)

There was a small house, by a lake in the woods. Here lived a man and his wife with their small girl, who was four years old. The house was on the edge of the woods, where the child loved to play. There was a boat on the pond for warm days when they could all go out for a ride in it. It had oars to row the boat, which the Dad would do, for he had more strength. They had fun. One time they would fish, and take the fish home for Mum to cook for tea. The taste of these fish was fresh, and they grew their own veg in the yard, to cook and eat with the fish, so it was fresh too, and good to eat. As the house was close to the wood, birds would perch on the trees and wake them with a Dawn Song, a great sound to hear at the break of day. There were few cars, bar those who drove to the lake, to gaze on the water, or take a boat out, so life was calm here. I would love to live in a quaint place like this... would you? Phew... I make that exactly two hundred words. It wasn't easy though. Two syllable words are plentiful, but I had to replace them. How did I do? :) Brightest Blessings.
