Stories from the Rhyming Dictionary
Every once in a while, I find a list of words in the rhyming dictionary
that is fun to play with. For instance, if you look under El'a (short
e) you will find words that lead to El-ur and El and to a good laugh.
Remember when you are playing you don't have to follow rules! Write
your own story!
A Little Novella About Cinderella
She lived with her stepmother, Queen Isabella
and her two ugly stepsisters, Stella
who wanted to marry the handsome young fellah
the prince and the son of King Acapella.
An invitation came, including Cinderella,
for a dance to be held up in the castella
in hopes of finding a wife for the fellah,
the prince, the son of King Acapella.
The princesses practiced the tarantella
and seamstresses sewed gowns of yellah
to every princess except Cinderella.
The night of the ball brought clouds and rain fella
and who do you think got to hold the umbrella
and arrived soaking wetyou're right, Cinderella!
"What a shame, you can't come," said Queen Isabella
"It would be a disgrace to King Acapella."
Cinderella was soakedlife was not going wella
when out stepped her godmother, lovely Marcella.
A flip of the wand from the old fortune-tellah
fixed her hair, gave her jewels, and that magic spella
gave the poor girl a gown of bright yellah
and slippers of glass to dazzle the fellah.
No one recognized herno one could tellah
that they were all looking at Cinderella.
You know what they say, all's well that ends wella
the prince has a princess, and it's Cinderella!
