My first's in Sonnet but not in Rhyme
My second's a drink the Brits opine
My third's the plural sound of "is"
My fourth's the bed where horses zizz!
My fifth is found in Golfer's game
My sixth sounds rude when written plain…
My seventh in French is wet indeed
My eighth appears in Write and Read.
My ninth's a River and a name
My tenth both tree and sheep explain.
My eleventh begins the alphabet
My twelfth can even be a neck!
My thirteenth's easy - just a vowel
My last, no turkey, is a fowl.
My whole - where a peaceful river flows
And source of England's greatest prose!
