(part #1 - December 5, 2021)
hale and hearty
hug and kiss
food and drink 
first and last
sin and redemption
down and out
betwixt and between
hem and haw
(part #2 - August 5, 2023) 
flotsam and jetsam
by hook or by crook
poop and scoop
bump and grind
birds and bees
flora and fauna
publish or perish
high and dry


Here and there
Echoic binomials (3 verses, a 'brief saga' )
Healthy, wealthy and wise (a trinomial)
More to follow

 "Bigger and bigger" in the above collection exemplifies nicely the echoic binomial.

And, it doesn't take too much imagination to guess that the whole enterprise can be extended on occasion to three parallel words (nouns, verbs or adjective).

Some musically inclined readers might enjoy a song for which Giorgio took the lyrics for the poem "Echoic Binomials", and adjusted them to fit with the melody of "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?".  If interested, click here for "Again and Again".
