Today's napowrimo prompt asked us to take five lines from some of our favorite poets and use them to create our own list poem. Mine includes 6 lines from William Shakespeare, Emily Dickinson, Gerard Manley Hopkins, and Seamus Heaney. I changed a few words, but left most lines in their original form. The last line is mine.
The Poet Remembers and Returns
Between my finger and my thumb
Full many a glorious morning have I seen
EARTH, sweet Earth, sweet landscape, with leavés throng
Nothing be so beautiful as spring!
How like a winter hath my absence been, but
Delight becomes pictorial
When I take up my pen.
Also, this is my 101st post on this blog. Many thanks to all who visit, read, and respond. I am having so much fun with this.
