DMC: "Robin Williams" by Danielle Hammelef


Robin Williams, you made me laugh.
I wanted to be Mindy, your earthling half.
Good Morning, Vietnam woke the world to your gift.
And Euphegenia Doubtfire gave the world a face lift.

Kwame Alexander has challenged us to write a clerihew this month. What's a clerihew, you ask? Click HERE for details.

You still have a few days to send your funny four-liner to TodaysLittleDitty (at) gmail (dot) com, or use the contact form in the sidebar to the right. Contributions must be received by this Thursday, April 30th, at 5:00 p.m. (ET). For inspiration, visit this month's wrap-up celebration to read the entire collection of clerihews.

One lucky participant will be randomly chosen to receive an autographed copy of THE CROSSOVER, which received the 2015 John Newbery Medal for the most distinguished contribution to American literature for children.


  1. Love this heartfelt tribute, Danielle. Robin Williams touched so many lives, didn't he?

  2. Love the characters/movies you included in this tribute, Danielle (and nice to read your writing--we have not connected in many years! Maybe since the Cricket reading at the UM arboretum?)

    1. Thanks, Buffy! I see your name all the time. And, yes, it has been way too long. I love poetry and admire writers who can write in verse, including you.

  3. This is terrific. It brought up a lot of memories. Thanks for posting it.

  4. This was one of the nicest Clerihews I've read! I've been so impressed with all the efforts so far.

  5. Still sad about Robin Williams passing :( A lovely tribute, Danielle!
