Loving to drop a vowel

watch it roll slowly away,

while silently the h cries out

in glee at the end of the q.

I before e except after c

screams and cries the kicking k.

U before me buzzes the b

and flies away across the sea.

The homonym joins the chorus,

but a double meaning hits the air

while the homophone tells a tale

of a snake eating its own tail.

Alliteration aligns itself with

assonance just for a quiet time.

and the pitter patter of consonance

keeps the whole mood so fine.
