Time For A Poem Break

How to Write a Poem

 

Sit in the grass and

watch the words play.

 

Hopscotch and Leapfrog,

jumping to and fro

and over each other.

 

London Bridge is falling down

a word now caught in place

put in jail

throw away the key.

 

Or perhaps it is Red Rover

Red Rover

back          and          forth

the word runs,

trying to break through.

 

See now, how they square dance

how they swing

around and around.

 

Do not hurry them.

Eventually they will

stop.

They will

settle down.

 

Then–

grab a pen

call them home,

and invite them

in for dinner.
