September 1: National No Rhyme (Nor Reason) Day

On September 1, we celebrate National No Rhyme (Nor Reason) Day, and all those words that don’t have any perfect rhymes. (Here’s to you, “orange!”)

The Phantom TollboothThis day has nothing whatsoever to do with Norton Juster’s amazing story The Phantom Tollbooth. Nevertheless, if you’ve never read this great kid’s chapter book, read it now! I don’t care how old you are! Then you’ll know all about the Princess of Sweet Rhyme and the Princess of Pure Reason, and what happens when they are sent into exile. 🙂

In the meantime, perhaps we can celebrate National No Rhyme (Nor Reason) Day with some nice nonsense poems, blank verse, of course.

“May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart
be pleasing in your sight,
O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.”

Psalm 19:14
