Rhyming Emily

Just give Emily a rhyming dictionary
To work in her bedroom monastery,
A wondrous gift to someone solitary,
An endless source of fun diversionary.

Happy as a clam this rhyming visionary.
What a golden mine of vocabulary
She would have found this lapidary,
If only someone had been her emissary.

What she would have done salutary.
Verbal needlepoint even more extraordinary.
We would all have been the beneficiary
Had Emily had the damn dictionary!
