The "rhyming verses" in this book were written in an effort to resuscitate to some degree all those poets and rhymesters who like to write (or used to, anyway) in rhyme, rhythm and meter. Most are dead now, and the general public no longer "craves rhyme" (as Robert W. Service once said). However, some are still living and occasionally one or two surface with a desire to revert to the old ways of writing poems, to tell stories in an old fashioned, anachronistic manner using rhyme, meter, alliteration, and - yes, if I dare say it - a structure which many in the world of academia and professional circles today eschew in favor of blank or free verse, or other forms of contemporary poetry...Which is fine, and no one should begrudge them. However, a common complaint often heard among laymen concerning contemporary poetry is simply "I just don't understand it."This book, therefore, is intended to offer some solace to those of us who just don't get it, but who like to read and write stories of adventure and misadventure (perhaps with a bit of philosophy thrown in now and then) told in simpler terms - perhaps at the same time imparting a modicum of appreciation for the lyrical beauty to be found in the rhythm and cadence of our language. This book shall have served its purpose if just one person appreciates a few of the rhyming verses contained in it; and makes an effort, however feeble, to perpetuate the genre.
