the 12 given words:
drum pounding carnivals rattling secret allowed 
silver comforting sticks imaginary gardens parrot 
to the accompaniment of drums pounding
very much a carnival-like form of rattling
when in flies a contending secret message
which fortunately is allowed in with grace

bless be tendencies of a silver lining
ever present which is most comforting
decidedly sticks to a normal procedure
rising above all else for all to endure

it is accomplished not without imaginary
as in peaceful gardens full of greenery
the insistence to parrot a stand already taken
only to realize the makings of a big problem

  5. This is my favorite line: "a contending secret message
    which fortunately is allowed in with grace"

  6. We would not live if there wasn't a "a silver lining / ever present which is most comforting"...So true.
