First prompt for April. I’m starting late.
Write a poem by completing the lines below. Keep it short and sweet. For those who are just getting comfortable with poetry, rhyming and cadence are completely optional. For the experienced poets in the room, let’s make this one a ballad with the ABABBCBC rhyming scheme.
Whose heart… (A)
And whose skin crawls when… (B)
I cheer for/when… (B)
And cry for/when… (C)
There is nothing I want more… (B)
In “The Book Thief” I found the line:
“My heart is tired.”
Am I a person whose heart is tired
Or is my brain tired and
my heart hungry?
There is a Russian song
where the singer sings to his heart,
“Thank you my heart, for being so good at the art of love.”
My dad sang the original Russian song
and played the record of it
when I was growing up.
If I called him right now,
He would sing it for me.
I am half Russian,
but my heart is wholely Russian.
