Yesterday at CWS we studied OULIPO poetry (a French movement in which you write with constraints). So, we were each given a phrase and were challenged to write a poem using only letters found in said phrase. Mine was 'Bet Down, Shine Bright' (which I quite like as a little phrase and might to some more work surrounding it). I was quite proud with mine, so I thought I'd share.
Bet Down, Shine Bright
Hit the thing with the ring so it sings;
Tie the tie in a bow then sigh.
Show the bone to the dog,
Show the hog how to sing.
The dog shit,
Hit a nit with a net and neigh.
The dog downs egg-nog
Then snogs the hog.
They sit on the bed with high tog.
It is night and the end is nigh.
Write your own! Pick a random phrase of a website and see what you can do with it! It's a lot of fun!
I promise I'll write about finding a house soon, got three essays due in at the moment and another couple of hundered pages of reading to do by Monday, so I'm going to get on that first!
