Ascenders and Descenders Forbidden

new ovens never
cause more amourous weavers –
save sonorous vows

~~

another oulipo poem. This one eliminates the use of ascenders and decenders.  If you write in lower case, an ascender is any letter that goes above the “line” (for example, b,d,f,h, etc.)  A descender is any letter that goes below the line (such as g,j,p, etc.  I have seen mixed opinions on whether ‘i’ is an ascender or not, so I avoided it to be on the safe side.  So the only letters available for this poem were a,c,e,m,n,o,r,s,u,v,w,x and y.  And yes, I realize that my haiku does not make a lot of sense.  Written for dVerse
