      Once upon a picture dreary, while I tangled weak and weary,
      Over many an overused pattern of forgotten lore
      While I plodded, kind of tangling, suddenly there came a banging,
      As of ideas gently slamming, slamming against my brainpan door.
      “Fancy these up,” I muttered,’ “they’ll be better than before.”
      Only this, and then repeat them more.

      So--take any old pattern--say the daisy that probably every doodler in the world chooses as his/her first doodle. Add a dash for decoration, a circle, a slash. Make some dark, make some light. Keep adding more on 'til you've got a bunch. And hey! That old overused pattern looks kind of nice.

      It's sort of like making goulash. There isn't much in the house, so you fancy up what you've got.

      Edgar Poe's probably turning over in his grave--though maybe he's used to being stolen from, by now.

      Thank you all!

      Shades of Banjo Pattrerson in the metre?
