Good homophone lessons should be part of any grammar repertoire. But lists of words just don't stick in the memory like visual verse. So please enjoy the "lesson."

Introduction

Win aye air
And eye off ten due
Eye try to clear the err
Don't ewe?

_____ TRANSLATION _____

When I err
And I often do
I try to clear the air
Don't you?

Rising Action

Eye bear my sole four the world to sea
Fore ewe, my darling deers
Eye hope eye have knot board ewe yet
Oar aisle here allowed you're tiers.

_____ TRANSLATION _____

I bare my soul for the world to see
For you, my darling dears
I hope I have not bored you yet
Or I'll hear aloud your tears.

Still Rising

Win ewe brows thee Whirled Wide Web
Due ewe ever fined
That miss steaks play eh vital roll
Inn leafing ewe bee hind?

_____ TRANSLATION _____

When you browse the World Wide Web
Do you ever find
That mistakes play a vital role
In leaving you behind?

Still Rising

Clothes you're ayes, don't bee uh frayed
Too list ten two my words
Sum thymes fore fun, eye make miss steaks
And tern words inn two swords.


_____ TRANSLATION _____

Close your eyes, don't be afraid
To listen to my words
Sometimes for fun, I make mistakes
And turn words into swords.

Climax

Eh pear of pares freshly paired bye my side
And as eye tolled this tail of woah
Reign did fall upon miso."

_____ TRANSLATION _____

"With my sword I soared on mountains high
A pair of pears freshly pared by my side
And as I told this tale of woe
Rain did fall upon me so."

Falling Action

Win eye heir
Win eye make miss steaks
Sum thymes in royal wheys
Eye know that eye
Can write my wrongs
And rhea sieve sum of yore prays.

_____ TRANSLATION _____

When I err
When I make mistakes
Sometimes in royal ways
I know that I
Can right my wrongs
And receive some of your praise.

Conclusion

Full of miss steaks

Uh Paul Oh Gee.

_____ TRANSLATION _____

For this poem
Full of mistakes
I owe a BIG
Apology.

How productive you are! I've got six hand-written and 90% done, but nothing 100% or typed. Frustrating!!
