Excellent, blitherer!
Much more succinct than my rambling.

I love my new blower—it's cool,
And now it's my favorite tool!
I have stopped using rakes,
Since the breeze this thing makes
Blows my leaves in the neighbor's new pool

laugh :P
Good to have learnt the form and scansion, and meter. The rhyme I knew!!!

During the festivities to celebrate the jubilee of the lyceum, the capricious French master made a cuckold of the Headmaster in the bucolic surroundings of the cricket pitch.

Edit or, to put it another way:-

The capricious French Master, with glee
Did cuckold the Headmaster, did he,
In a bucolic ditch
By the School’s cricket pitch
At the lyceum’s grand jubilee

At the jubilee celebrating the founding of the lyceum, the inebriated cuckold made a capricious pass at a young bucolic.

Neither the bucolic surroundings nor the terpsichorean beauty of the murmurings emanating just now from the lyceum's dim stage were sufficient to distract the cuckolded fellow from the rueful anticipation of tomorrow's jubilee celebration with the capricious harpy who was his first and only love.
