E is for Erinaceous

Welcome to the second week of A to Z!  Today I have a silly little poem for you.  For some reason, today's word just begged for some poetic expression.

Today's word: ERINACEOUS

The word erinaceous means this: of, or resembling a hedgehog.

Once I stumbled across that word, I couldn't resist!  Enjoy!


She walked into the room,
alluring and vivacious.
A drink in hand, she milled about,
and her laugh was contagious.
She drew near, and I froze.
Never been the most loquacious.
I feel silly now that I was flattered
when she called me erinaceous.


  1. HAHAHAHAHA! That's wonderful!

  2. That was so fun! And a new word for me - thanks. I think Erin Aceous would make a good name for an MG crime-solving heroine. Possibly one with spiky hair.

  3. That's great! No man wants to be thought of as a hedgehog.

  4. Just love this! Such a lovely fun use of the word.

  5. Hee. That was fun. And I learned a new word. Bonus.

  6. New word to me, just like that poor guy. :)

  7. ERIN ACEOUS was an egregious interloper.

  8. Erinaceous is a great word! I need to find ways to use it from now on.
