NaPoWriMo – Day 10
“Today I challenge you to write an abecedarian poem – a poem with a structure derived from the alphabet. There are a couple of ways of doing this. You could write a poem of 26 words, in which each word begins with a successive letter of the alphabet. You could write a poem of 26 lines, where each line begins with a successive letter. Or finally, if you’d prefer to narrow your focus, perhaps you could write a poem which focuses on a few letters, using words that repeat them.”
A barrener challenge dryly enfetters.
For gift here in jambing kaleidoscope letters,
Merged neatly on placement; queerly rows shown;
To understand very well xeric your zone!
(In a spirit of sheer sadism, I’m not going to define ‘xeric’ for you!)
