... so sorry ...

Post  Karen on Fri Feb 24, 2017 6:45 am

I woke up this morning wondering if I had missed Last Friday, and I had!

A writing bud and I are teaching some teen workshops at CALS in preparation for the teen poetry contest at Lit Fest.  We're tossing around poem-starters of all kinds.  One I like is the apology poem.  So much so, here's mine.

THIS IS JUST TO SAY

(for William Carlos Williams)

I didn't watch
the end
of that movie
Your favorite

I know
you love it
because you told me
all the good parts

Forgive me
It was so long
and the pillow
so soft

In other news ... poem-starters WELCOME, O Ye of Great Experience.

WCW's apology poem

Post  Pat on Fri Feb 24, 2017 8:43 pm

Simple, to the point, just like WCW often was.  I laughed at S 2.  I've never thought about starters for poems.  Interesting thought.  Apology poems. I just never categorized them as such. You have just opened my eyes!   I can see that it would be highly helpful to the teen not knowing where to begin!  My hat is off to you, Karen.

This is a fun poem.  I think it works just fine.

Simple, concise, fresh... feels very human.  If it is an apology someone must have tongue in cheek.  Starter lines for poems?  Just listen to what kids say, no, twitter.  Kids talk so much faster than I listen these days.  I like the fact this poem does not wander all over the page.
Well done.  Dewell
