Searched and he did find.

His mind in such a dither.
When all at once he leaped up tall
And said; "Hey wife, come hither!"

His heart so full of glee.

And wanted me to see.

He said; "Here wife, I've found the beast
That once eluded capture.
I'm trilled to bits, I can't deny."
His face alight with rapture.

I gazed upon the lap top screen
And looked at what he'd sought.
I must admit I tried so hard,
My mirth I nearly fought.

But, as I laughed, he gazed at me,
His eyes so full of sorrow.
For there, emblazoned on the screen;

    Hiya Kate,

    You have a great poetical mind. Reading this poem made that very clear as it seemlessly flowed from one line to the next. Many of the poems on here seem to have too many words per line.

    Quite interesting mix of archaic language and a very contemporary situation.
