What again were those Middle English/Old English words that rhymed with"purple." I've searched the archives to no avail.

Thanks.

Brandon,
Perhaps you saw this in a thread--I had no luck in
Archives, either.
I can offer the word 'syrple'. YOU know, from the song:
"sugar's sweet and so's maple syrple"! Gotta go now!

Nope. No luck with any ME or OE words. The best I can do is 'carpool'. More an asination than a rhyme, though.

Purple carpool? Shades of flower power and Yellow submarine there.

According to http://www.rhymezone.com

"Sorry, no perfect rhymes were found.
Try a word with a similar but slightly different ending."

The other night in my dreams
I saw a vision purple -
Moonlight shining, lovely mermaid
Shimmering in a merpool.

Two drawers they shared
marked "his" and "hers."
His painted blue; hers purple.

Two knobs affixed.
The blue was his.
The other one was her pull.

The mists did twist
The moon did wane
All swirled into a whirlpool
Black as myrtle berries grew
My blue-blown skies of purple
