Wordplay #6 Fain
Fain > happily: with gladness or eagerness
willing or eager to do something
compelled: forced by an obligation or circumstance to do something.
Her obvious relish in playing with words
could be seen as fain, although some might
say her single-minded focus to begin
was grievous sin, insane, because they
have no real desire to do the same.

My happiness at reading your piece, first thing this morning is fain. Wishing you fain.
I think this one could set me off on an aliteration riff, lol. Glad I could bring a smile,
Enjoyed browsing through your blog. Love wordplay myself…and agree…those who don’t enjoy think those who do are nuts! See you next time. Vb
Thanks Versebender, glazed eyes at the word poetry is a really big hint, no?
Elizabeth, I love what you did with this word. I am writing a Mother’s day poem and I would like to borrow a few of your six day words, to add to my piece, if you don’t mind. A wordle of sorts 🙂
You are always welcome, Pamela. Will come and check it out.
