Tuesday Tales

Let’s try some poetry – be kind, I really new at this!

Today in my poetry class we tried a number of new writing methods. For this one, we took a poem and wrote our own lines in between each of the poet’s lines, then deleted his lines leaving our own. This is the result from tonight.

Dreams. Inspired by Charles Simic

Welcoming all of us in,

Keeping them out in the rain.

Wandering aimlessly to

Hear the parade passing by.

Imagining someone is home but

Wanting to be left alone.

Creeping along out of sight

While the stars are all in a row.

Dragging his feet, taking coat

Hoping no one has seen.

Beneath the fall-bare trees

Dreaming of clouds and moonlight.

  1. That is sure an interesting way to do a poem. I hadn’t heard of it before, but I like it. Yours turned out really good! 🙂

  2. Wow ! The result is awesome. I’ll try to remember this method to give it a go. 🙂
