Another Silly Quiz

Ottava rima? Hrm, can’t say I’m familiar. But I guess any result that includes the phrase “gleeful spite” is all right by me 😉

Ottava rima? Me? That can’t be right!
Too frivolous? But tut, there’s no such thing!
Let others ponder thoughts of wrong and right,
Or sit and think how much they love the spring;
I’d rather spend my time in gleeful spite,
Or maybe laugh, or maybe sit and sing.
Besides, it might be fun to be inspiring –
But surely it would get so very tiring.

Apparently, if I wasn’t an ottava rima, I’d be a sonnet:

I am the sonnet, never quickly thrilled;
Not prone to overstated gushing praise
Nor yet to seething rants and anger, filled
With overstretched opinions to rephrase;
But on the other hand, not fond of fools,
And thus, not fond of people, on the whole;
And holding to the sound and useful rules,
Not those that seek unjustified control.
I’m balanced, measured, sensible (at least,
I think I am, and usually I’m right);
And when more ostentatious types have ceased,
I’m still around, and doing, still, all right.
In short, I’m calm and rational and stable –
Or, well, I am, as much as I am able.
