If you’re new to dVerse or the quadrille, it’s simply a poem of 44 words, excluding the title. It can be in any form, rhymed or unrhymed, metered, or unmetered. You MUST use the word “shiver” or some form of the word in your poem. Are you shivering in anticipation? Go and write!
I spied a wee mouse. It made me squeal.
He rose on two and gave up this spiel:
“How can YOU claim a galled fright?
Not ONE crumb have I found tonight.
Shiver not, you greedy disgrace.
I’ll bid farewell and blow this place!”
