Wednesday, March 20, 2019 – Poems of Spring
Happy first day of spring to us all. To celebrate let’s write some poetic words of the season.
Let us open our books to Chapter One – How to Write a Poem of Spring.
- When writing a poem of spring, select something that makes the season special.
- Make it sound old. Use words that no one uses any more in ordinary language. For example, use words like “hark” or “Ye pilgrim.”
- Always put a “th” after verbs.
- Make it sound biblical, religious or spiritual. Use words like thee and thou.
- Make it mysterious. Write about something few people even know what you are writing about and even fewer care.
Here is an example of spring poem utilizing all of the above suggestions.
Oh Ye Pilgrim Baller
Hark! My bracket doth already bursteth
Because I picketh Prairie View A&M,
Hence, I have selecteth the upset
And picketh the Spartans to win!
If you insist on writing about flowers, try this one.
Use Care in Where Thou Butt Doth Go
Doth not sit thou buttocks in bluebonnets
A rattler awaits thy nether region,
Hasten thy run through the fire ants for fun
To celebrate the spring season.
You have the rest of the class time to work on your spring poems.
