While she appreciates the beauty of jewelry sold in most stores, she really liked the uniqueness of many of the items she handpicked. One of her favorites is the award-winning “South Sea Glow,” designed by Adam Neeley. Three golden South Sea cultured pearls and two white Akoya cultured pearls are set in hand-fabricated Elektra Gold, transitioning from 24-karat yellow gold to white gold. Asher explained not only are the pieces beautiful, but they show a wide variety. An-

In addition to the Smithsonian jewelry exhibit, the Lizzadro will hold an earring workshop Saturday for those 16 and older. Asher explained members of the West Suburban Lapidary Club lead jewelry workshops every few months. During this class, participants will create three pairs of earrings. “I hope that people in Elmhurst take advantage of the cultural institution we have here,” Asher said. “It’s right in their backyard.”

ELMHURST – They say diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but Dorothy Asher took explicit care to look for other gem stones when cultivating the Lizzadro Museum’s current “Modern Designer Jewelry from the Smithsonian” exhibit. “I looked for things that were showy,” Asher said. She avoided the “big four” as she called them, namely diamonds, emeralds, rubies and sapphires in general. Instead, she looked for large pieces with colorful gems through more than 100 works available from the Smithsonian Gem Collection. “The museum is a Smithsonian affiliate, so we are able to work closely with the curators,” Asher said. After about six months, she’d assembled a collection of 11 designer pieces that focused on American gem stones. A few diamonds and emeralds made their way into the exhibit next to an oversized turquoise Najavo bracelet and a pearl ring. “There’s a big departure from just the jewelry store jewelry,” Asher said.

$8.6M projects expected to reduce sewer backups By MARI GRIGALIUNAS mgrigaliunas@shawmedia.com ELMHURST – The Elmhurst City Council approved three projects designed to reduce the recurrence of 78 percent of sewer backups reported from the July 2010 storm. The approved Southwest Elmhurst Wet-Weather Control Facility projects total about $8.6 million and are intended to reduce sewer backups for about 2,300 homes. Archon Construction Co.,

Inc. of Addison was the lowest bidder to install a force main that will run from the Saylor Avenue and Jackson Street lift station to a new storage tank at $2,971,900. Maxim Construction of Volo bid the lowest to upgrade the pump station at Saylor Avenue and Jackson Street with a $2,766,006.80 offer. The same company was the lowest bidder for the two-million-gallon prestressed concrete storage tank, which will go in at the wastewater treatment plant for $2,893,860.43.

The projects will be paid for with a $9 million low-interest loan from the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency and $1.1 million budgeted for wastewater projects. After the initial engineering estimates were submitted in July, additional design work continued, and poor soil conditions created additional costs. Low-strength soils under the proposed storage tank necessitated a deep foundation system. Soils slated for excavation require disposal

in a non-special waste landfill. These costs exceeded the original budget for the project by about $580,000. “They’re all things you wouldn’t have seen up front,” said Jim Kennedy, 6th Ward Alderman and Public Works and Buildings Committee chairman, at a recent committee meeting. To cover the additional costs, city staff recommended postponing a $350,000 water meter replacement project, which was included in this

year’s budget but isn’t prepared for implementation in 2014 anyway. Staff also suggested deferring a portion of the water main replacement project that only requires reinforcement and could wait until next year. That would save another $151,000. Another suggestion was bidding out about 90 percent of the sanitary sewer lining project and saving 10 percent for next year, a savings of $80,000. Projects are expected to be completed this fall.

Road salt outlook OK, but water main breaks on the rise By MARI GRIGALIUNAS mgrigaliunas@shawmedia.com ELMHURST – Interim Director of Public Works Steve Weinstock said even with the alternating below-zero temperatures and heavy snowfalls this winter season, Elmhurst isn’t in danger of running out of salt. “It does not appear that way,” Weinstock said Tuesday. “We’re getting more in.” The city hasn’t mixed beet juice with road salt like

some other municipalities to combat icy roads. The Public Works Department mixes calcium chloride liquid with road salt to keep it working during severe cold. The city also has started to mix sand with the salt to extend the road salt supply. While sand won’t melt ice like salt, it does help with traction. When asked if the sand will impede the flow of stormwater into sewers, Weinstock said not much. “In a heavy rain, it’ll just

wash through,” Weinstock said at a Public Works and Buildings Committee meeting Monday. If Elmhurst doesn’t get a heavy rain to wash the sand through the sewer system, Weinstock said Public Works will then use a sewer flusher to vacuum it out. While road salt doesn’t seem to be a big concern as of yet, the severe weather has caused other problems in Elmhurst. “We’re getting a lot of water

main breaks,” Weinstock said. In October the city experienced nine water main breaks, but there were three on Tuesday alone. Weinstock said the city averaged one break a day through the month of January. “The frost has gone quite deep into the ground,” Weinstock said of why the number of breaks has increased so much. Another issue has been frozen services. Weinstock said people who have had frozen services in the past can pre-

vent it from happening again by running a small stream of water at all times. He said it can be a small stream of water about the diameter of a pencil lead, but keeping water running through the pipes will help prevent freezing. Gary Smith, the city’s water and wastewater manager, said the Public Works Department has been working a lot of 24-hour days to keep up with this season’s severe weather. “Everybody’s fairly tired,” Smith said.

SEEING THROUGH HIGH-DEFINITION LENSES One of the most significant advances in the manufacturing of eyeglass lenses involves the introduction of “free form” technology. This revolutionary digital manufacturing process makes it possible to transform the way we see through eyeglass lenses much in the same way that high-definition TV improved upon older analogue TV pictures. Precision diamond-cut high-definition (digital) lenses utilize computer-aided design and surfacing to customized eyeglass lenses that provide unsurpassed correction of nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. As a result, highdefinition lenses provide sharper image quality, better peripheral vision, improved contrast sensitivity, and less night glare. While these lenses cost a bit more, most find the added expense is more than worth the improved vision they provide. SKOWRON EYE CARE combines today’s modern technology with personalized attention directed specifically to the eye care needs of our patients. We feature a large selection of quality eyewear, including designer frames. Some of our brands include Ray Ban, Fossil, Gucci, Silhouette, Nine West, Juicy Couture, Coach, Maui Jim, and Cole Haan. We are happy to help you select the eyewear that fits properly and is right for your face shape and skin tone. To schedule an appointment, please give us a call today. At Skowron Eye Care, our mission is your vision. P.S. Free-form lens-manufacturing technology can surface lenses in power increments of 0.01 diopter (D) compared with 0.125 to 0.25 D increments of conventional eyeglass lens tooling.

AT&T awards $1,500 to Elmhurst Heritage Foundation By MARI GRIGALIUNAS mgrigaliunas@shawmedia.com ELMHURST – The Elmhurst Heritage Foundation accepted a $1,500 check from AT&T after state Rep.

other needs. The campaign aims to raise $250,000 for a new exhibit about Elmhurst history that will open at Elmhurst Historical Museum in the fall. “The new exhibit is intended to be a real attraction for the museum and to serve and function as a continually evolving story as additions will be made,” Elmhurst Heritage Foundation President Cathy Jordan said. The new exhibit will replace the “Visions of Home” exhibit that was installed in 1986. Touchscreens, interpretive panels, videos and artifacts will make up the new exhibit.

Jordan thanked AT&T, as well as Reboletti, whom she referred to as Elmhurst’s homeboy. “Dennis has always looked out for Elmhurst, and this is just another example,” Mayor Steve Morley said. Museum Director Brian Bergheger thanked Valerie Bruggeman and Steve Selcke from AT&T who presented the foundation with a $1,500 check and an award. “I thank you not only for your gift but your trust in what we’re doing here at the historical museum, your trust in the Heritage Foundation as well as your trust in Elmhurst,” Bergheger said.

For Wiederer, the reward is working with each person on individual challenges, whether it’s coming up with a plan for what to eat at lunch or what exercises they may want to try. “It’s really awesome to weigh people, type in their numbers

and see the weight that they’ve lost,” Wiederer said. In addition to holding her accountable, the Ton of Fun program is accessible, Knippen said. “There’s no reason why anybody can’t do this.”

In addition to all the generous cash and food donations, I am happy to report that 221 families with 523 children were given toys, clothing and personal items through the York Township Food Pantry “Adopt A Family For Christmas 2013” Program. I have seen firsthand how our York Township Holiday Programs have helped so many of the challenged families and senior citizens who reside in our community and how many of them enjoyed their Christmas so much more thanks to the support of the organizations and individuals mentioned above. In closing, a reminder: The York Township Senior Center will be scheduling identity theft prevention seminars in the near future under the auspices of the DuPage County Sheriff’s Office Senior Services Unit. In the meantime, here’s a tip: If you do get a suspicious phone call, immediately ask for a callback number. That will usually result in a hang-up by the scam artist. Do not share any personal information and contact the Sheriff’s Senior Services Unit at 630-407-2317 to make a report.

To the Editor: Cancer is the second leading cause of death in Illinois. Detecting cancer early increases the chances of successful treatment, improves survival rates and cuts overall medical costs. Unfortunately, thousands of uninsured and underinsured women in Illinois are in danger of losing access to crucial cancer screening tests, if Gov. Pat Quinn does not protect funding for the Illinois Breast and Cervical Cancer Program. Research shows that cancer screenings save lives. Yet in the past three years, fewer women have had access to lifesaving cancer screenings because of cuts to the IBCCP. I urge Gov. Quinn to make breast cancer screening and treatment a top priority in his budget address. Clare Thibodeaux Elmhurst, American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network volunteer

and businesses nearly $450 million in Illinois sales tax relief on gasoline. Illinois is one of seven states with a sales tax on gasoline in addition to a per gallon tax. This is a tax on a tax and terrible fiscal policy. Even worse, the gasoline sales tax collected doesn’t even go to support roads, it goes to the state’s General Revenue Fund. My plan calls for reducing the sales tax on gasoline. It saves Illinois families and businesses hundreds of dollars per year. After Gov. Pat Quinn and the Democrats raised income taxes 67 percent, Illinoisans deserve some relief. Part of the remaining sales tax will be dedicated toward a program to begin repairing our failing roads and bridges. The American Society of Engineers reported that 73 percent of Illinois’ major roads are in poor or mediocre con-

dition (annually costing $292 per motorist in extra repair expenses) and found 2,311 of Illinois’ bridges to be structurally deficient. Lowering this sales tax not only saves families money, it helps gasoline and convenience stores bordering other states with lower gas taxes. We lose millions of dollars to bordering states when Illinoisans cross the border to buy lower priced gasoline, then stay and purchase groceries and other items. We need a top-to-bottom review of all taxes and fees that are currently levied. This proposal is my first step in that comprehensive reform of the way we raise and spend tax dollars. State Sen.

Alert: Sidewalks are awful I would like to comment on the sidewalks south of 55th Street in Westmont. There have been other terrible years in the past, but this year, it’s just awful. The people and the businesses do not clean the sidewalks and there’s a lot of foot traffic. People are walking in the street and they’re riding bikes in the street and I was wondering if something couldn’t be done to alert village of Westmont of the problem of the sidewalk south of 55th Street in Westmont.

Allow only 1 car on street Regarding the parking problem in Brookfield, I think maybe the village should institute one car per family to be allowed to park on the street and if you have two, three, four cars, then you need to put them in the garages or someplace else because there is limited parking. Also, why don’t people park their cars in front of their homes instead of in front of somebody else’s. Everyone has one designated parking spot in front of their home. They should park their car in front of their home.

Good job by public works Pat on the back and a tip of the halo to the Berwyn Public Works Department for a great job in snow removal. Unfortunately, the police department has been lax in enforcing the ordinances concerning cars left on the streets for more than three days and have

I just read in Suburban Life this week about the Downers Grove disposal program for drugs, which is wonderful. I just want people to be aware of the fact that, and I am a Downers Grove residence, for years at the Lisle police station, you’ve been able to walk in and put your drugs in a box without making an appointment and sometimes that may be more convenient. So anyhow, I just want everybody to know about it. I think it’s wonderful Downers Grove is finally offering this program. But I think it would be easier for a lot of people if they don’t have to make an appointment, they can just drop their drugs off, which I’ve been doing for years.

Skepticism toward Lemont sports complex I am becoming more skeptical as events occur surrounding the proposed Lemont Sports Complex. Our elected officials have circumvented a public vote on the project with their plan to pledge taxes, other than property taxes, and taking out loans to finance the project. If the complex fails, such as the one in Bridgeview, the residents could be faced with increased property taxes to pay the debt. It appears that the current mayor has little faith in the See SOUND OFF, page 12

Shovel your sidewalks People in Darien, shovel your sidewalks. If you can’t, hire someone. A teenage boy went around our neighborhood asking home owners to hire him – a few did. Ones that did not still haven’t shoveled. If you have a corner house, do all your walks. I’m tired of having my kids walk in the street to their school bus stop, and I don’t enjoy walking my dogs in the street.

Parking ticket reply I agree. Why isn’t Brookfield ticketing or towing cars? A fire truck was trying to drive down my street the other day to shovel paths to the hydrants, and they couldn’t get through at the south end of the block, so they had to back it up to get out. On Ogden Avenue in Brookfield, someone had been plowing the sidewalks for a while, and I was so grateful, but it seems like they just gave up about three snowfalls ago. The only place to walk now is in the streets or alleys, since only a few of the businesses bother to shovel.

Lastly, he’s found flood-proofing systems that line the outside of homes to prevent water from entering a home over the foundation. “I think the goal for this could be to provide immediate and affordable solutions to citizens until long-term solutions can be implemented,� Beedon said.

Another resident, Joe Gornick, who lives on Geneva Avenue, worried the committee and council haven’t made enough headway on stormwater solutions since the 2010 floods. “This is really four years into this, and I haven’t seen a single actionable item that we can point to that shows that we’re doing anything to prevent further problems,� Gornick said.

ELMHURST – A resident presented flood-proofing options Monday to the Public Works and Buildings Committee to consider for a cost-sharing program. “Individual home flood proofing [are] things we can do immediately,� said Elmhurst resident Dan Beedon. “So I suggested the committee take a look at some cost-sharing programs that are similar to the sanitary programs that the city’s implemented.� Dan Beedon shared photos of his home on Parkside Avenue after the June 2010 storm and then the April 2013 storm.

In 2010, he said his home took in water through an attached garage, as well as up through a stand pipe in the basement. Beedon said his minivan was “totaled� by the water that flooded his garage. In 2013, only about a half inch pooled inside his garage door. Beedon described both passive and active measures he’s taken to flood-proof his home. The benefits of passive measures like raised sidewalks, Beedon said, are they don’t require intervention to set up during a storm, they’re usually invisible and there isn’t a need to store devices used only during a storm. “However, passive solutions are more expensive than

ELMHURST – York High School graduate and former Elmhurst resident John Rasmussen was honored with the Legion or Merit after serving 26 years of his life as a chaplain in the U.S. Army. “They go on maneuvers just like any other John troops in the Army,” said his Rasmussen mother, Margaret Rasmussen, who lives in Lombard. Lt. Col. John Rasmussen always wanted to be a pastor, but it wasn’t until 1987 that he decided to serve his country as an Army chaplain. He retired July 31, 2013 after 10 years of service with the Wisconsin Army National Guard, 16 years of active duty service, a Bronze Star and now the Legion of Merit among other decorations. But what he remembers most is the service work he did in Iraq. He helped set up water treatment facilities for people, built schools and assisted with Iraq’s first democratic election in 2005. “Those are the kinds of things I was really proud of,” John Rasmussen said. His unit delivered paper ballots to polling places for the election. Instead of using a voter registration system, residents placed a finger on a pad of permanent purple ink after dropping their ballot. “They were lining the streets holding up their purple fingers and cheering for joy,” said John Rasmussen of the men and women of all ages he remembers seeing that day. His journey began as child when he would follow his pastor grandfather, for whom John was named, around

wherever he went. “My grandfather was always my hero,” he said. He remembers standing in the church giving his own sermon to his grandfather when he was about 5 years old. When John Rasmussen was ordained in 1978, his mother wasn’t in the least bit surprised about the career her son had chosen. His path to the military was much more quickly decided. When John Rasmussen saw news coverage of the 1983 Beirut barracks bombing, he saw a Marine who appeared to be mourning the loss of a comrade. “I remember thinking, ‘Where’s the chaplain?’ ” John Rasmussen said. That day he visited recruiting stations for all of the branches of the military, and a few years later he began his service with the Wisconsin National Guard. “I am very proud of him of course,” Margaret Rasmussen said. “I was very pleased that he chose that field because I know he was happy with the work he was doing.” While John Rasmussen witnessed firsthand the trauma and stress of military life in all sorts of venues – from Bosnia to Iraq and even domestic duty working on disaster relief – he knows all service men and women share at least one battle. “The main stress is being separated from your loved ones,” John Rasmussen said. For now, he’s enjoying spending time with his wife, Lenae. The two work side by side as pastors at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in El Paso, Texas. “Serving my country and serving soldiers as a chaplain in the United States Army has been the highlight of my life ,other than being married to my wife and my kids,” John Rasmussen said.

Restaurant reviews

Thai Pot stirs affection for traditional cuisine DOWNERS GROVE – Thai fare has become more commonplace over the years, and, like many other adopted cuisines, often more Americanized. Breading, cream, sugary sauces and less traditional spices frequently are incorporated. Thai Pot seems to resist that temptation, offering authentic flavors and food, to good result. During my first visit to the restaurant, I stopped by for lunch. Tucked into a strip mall in Downers Grove, the storefront eatery has a bright, appealingly decorated interior. The full menu is not available midday, when the restaurant focuses on a selection of weekday lunch specials, which are fairly diverse and very well priced. For just under $8, you get soup, the appetizer of the day and a well-portioned entree. The meal started with a simple yet delicious chicken and jasmine rice soup. It reminded me of my mom’s best chicken noodle, but the jasmine and a smattering of other Thai spices gave it an extra layer of savory that really set it apart. All the components were cooked well, and the broth had an almost buttery texture. The aromatic fish sauce and spices in the red curry with tofu, which usually are muted by lots of coconut sauce, wafted my way as the server approached the table. The emphasis was on the spicy chili sauce in the curry, a dish overflowing with veggies and tofu. The tofu itself melted in my

mouth. It was boiled, not fried, giving it an eggy texture. After the satisfying lunch, I was curious to check out the full menu, and followed up another day with a dinner visit. I started with an order of Shrimp Cigars – admittedly chosen because of the great name. They were big plump shrimp, tail-on, alongside Thai basil and a bit of onion, all wrapped and fried in a wonton wrapper. The visual was a great one, and the presentation allowed the shrimp to stay the star. My entree of spicy basil leaves with chicken had a great blend of flavors, particularly the sauce. It contained just enough basil to add a nice punch. I would have liked even more of the gravy, simply because it was so good. Thai Pot’s greatest strength is its commitment to authenticity. Thai is one of my favorite cuisines – I love the Americanized versions just as much as I love the ones straight from the recipes of Thai grandmothers – and Thai Pot managed to throw in a couple flavors I hadn’t experienced before. Diners who would like to push their boundaries a bit, or those who already relish the more traditional flavors, will want to find out what’s cooking at Thai Pot.

Still in control By JASON ROSSI jrossi@shawmedia.com GLEN ELLYN – Frank Toohey and his York basketball teammates didn’t play their best game of the season Feb. 7. Which might make the Dukes’ 51-38 win over West Suburban Silver rival Glenbard West even more impressive. York (22-2 overall, 9-0 WSS) didn’t convert a basket in the second quarter, had leading scorer Toohey sit out for a sizable stretch in the third quarter, and saw West creep to within five points in the fourth, yet still pulled away for a comfortable win on the road that kept its Silver championship hopes alive. “It feels good,” Toohey said. “We’re feeling good [about this win], but we still have a lot to work on. We have some big games coming up, but we’re excited and we’re definitely confident.” Friday’s victory kept the Dukes in the driver’s seat in the Silver, but their next two conference games are perhaps the biggest of the season. After playing Downers Grove North on senior night tomorrow at 7:30 p.m., they hit the road to face Hinsdale Central, which currently sits one game back in the WSS standings, at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday. If the Dukes avoid a slip-up against DGN, the game against Central could be the de facto conference championship game. York hasn’t won a conference title since 2006. “We all know how good our league is,” York head coach Vince Doran said. “If you don’t come to play, you’re going to get beat, and that’s been proven time and time again. We’ve won a few close ones and I feel like every game is a big game, but we try to take it one step at a time.” Central will need to navigate road games at Proviso West and Lyons Township this weekend to stay in contention for the title. York ground out a 34-30 win over Central in a defensive battle earlier in the season. If the Dukes

Defense, free throws are key to York victory as it controls destiny in conference race

York 51 Glenbard West 38 THREE KEYS TO VICTORY Free throw shooting: For the game, York was 23-of-30 at the free throw line compared to 4-of-8 for Glenbard West. Scoring without Toohey: When Frank Toohey went to the bench with his third foul, the Dukes went on an 8-3 run. Jayvon Thomas scored four points, Charlie Rose hit a 3-pointer, and Jack Heinle sank a free throw. Limiting Davis: York held West leading scorer Corey Davis to just two points in the game and drew two charges against him as Davis eventually fouled out early in the fourth.

have it their way, defense will play a part in the rematch. “It definitely comes down to defense with us,” Toohey said. “Defense is definitely our cornerstone, what we take pride in, and as long as you play defense you’re going to be in every game no matter how many points you score.” Defense was the key to keeping West at bay. Leading 11-8 after a quarter, the Dukes didn’t make a basket in the second quarter but they extended their edge to 24-18 at halftime thanks to stifling defense and 8-of-10 free throw shooting. When Toohey went to the bench with his third foul with 4:09 to go in the third, York’s 30-24 advantage swelled to 38-27 in his absence. And after West cut the lead to 40-35 with 3:22 left in the game, York went 11-of-12 at the foul line down the stretch to seal the win and stay a leg up in the tight conference race.Toohey led all scorers with 18 points. Stanley Roberts had eight for the Dukes while Charlie Rose and Jayvon Thomas scored seven each. “This is a tough conference.” Toohey said. “Every road game, it’s always hard to go into anyone’s house and win. We just gutted it out.”

Suburban Life ATHLETE OF THE WEEK

8PREP ROUNDUP

VanderBrug passes 1,000 points SUBURBAN LIFE MEDIA

FRANK TOOHEY York Senior | Basketball Why Toohey was selected: Toohey became the all-time wins leader in York boys basketball history after the Dukes’ 51-38 win against Glenbard West on Feb. 7. York senior forward Frank Toohey doesn’t always put up the biggest numbers, but all he has done since joining the Dukes’ varsity team is win. He scored 18 points in York’s win at Glenbard West last Friday for his 84th win in a Duke uniform. Toohey, the Oak Trust Credit Union Athlete of the Week, talked with Suburban Life sports reporter Dan Santaromita about what the accomplishment says about his play and the state of the program.

How do you rate this accomplishment? It’s pretty cool. I’ve never been a big record guy, but really what it means is I’ve had the best teammates and coaches when I’ve been here. I’m not trying to get my numbers.

What does it say about the state of the program that York has had such a great run in recent years? I think this season we’ve had fantastic chemistry. Everyone is willing to step up. No one is trying to steal the show. We don’t care who does well or who does what. We just want to win.

Does it change your perspective at all to hear that York has been playing since 1920? It’s really cool. It’s something that I’m proud of. I’m proud of all these teams that I’ve been on. We’ve definitely been on a good stretch since I’ve been here. I’ve been fortunate to play with many, many great players, a couple playing Division I in Will Sullivan and David Cohn.

The Timothy Christian boys basketball team started hot, but was unable to hang with Riverside Brookfield on Feb. 7. The Trojans led 22-13 after a quarter but lost 71-55. Timothy made six 3-pointers in the first quarter to jump out to the big lead and got 13 points from Connor VanderBrug. VanderBrug finished with 24 points and surpassed the 1,000-point mark for his career. Timothy bounced back Tuesday with a 67-52 win at Elmwood Park.

ter departed following the 2012 season. Both Adam and Lester previously worked with Syracuse head coach Scott Shafer at Western Michigan University. “This is a bittersweet moment for me,” Adam said. “I have put a tremendous amount of effort into my time at Elmhurst and I am thrilled about the growth the

program endured over the past seven years, but I am excited for the new opportunity.” Adam led Elmhurst to a 4-6 overall record and a 3-4 mark in the CCIW in his only season as the Bluejays’ head coach. A search for a new head coach will begin immediately. – Suburban Life Media

Perhaps you’ve heard this classic Valentine’s Day poem, and maybe you’ve even read it to someone you love. This Valentine’s Day, work on making your own version of the poem. It can be funny, silly or sincere. Just have fun with it. Start out with “Roses are red” as the irst line. This sets up the poem for your readers so they know to expect your own version of this classic form. Write four lines. Four lines is the common form this poem uses, so stick to that. Keep it short and silly! Part of the charm of this form is that it is short, sweet and to the point. Each line should have between four to six syllables — use seven only if you have to. be creative. The classic form uses a color on the second line, but you don’t have to. Instead of a color, you can use another descriptive word on that line — sight, sound, taste and feeling all work in place of a color. Rhyme it. Rhyming this poem keeps it feeling light, fresh and musical. Traditionally, you should use words that sound the same at the end of the second and fourth line of the poem (“blue” rhymes with “you” in the original). You can also rhyme lines three and four.
