 the elegant elegant lady says something like "Rendena"
and a beautiful voice floats over the crowd

112.365 - quatrain 112.2017 scrabble-a-whirl

I take off my crown and watch with child's eyes
the letters whirl, spin, and tumble like a dare

trying to understand the world
until some approximately adolescent year
they stop thinking to understand girls
