May Day Poem Exercise

bleeding hearts unfurl in the april garden

In honor of May Day, here’s a playful prompt:

A 14-line poem about May

  • Every line must contain in addition to whatever other kinds of syllabled words you like, one (and only one) two-syllable word and one three-syllable word.
  • A rich sound texture using repeated sounds and rhythms–you choose how
  • The following words: stone, clever, melt, yellow
  • A line “lifted” from the poem you memorized
