Have you guys ever seen the magnet sets that are a bunch of words and you can rearrange them to make sentences? I’ve heard there are Grimm ones, Edgar Allen Poe ones, and a bunch of others!
Well, I was given a Shakespearean one not to long back and it is so much fun. I decided to put the words all over my fridge!
Not going to lie, I did this mostly to make sure I didn’t loose them because they are quite small and hard to keep track of where you’ve put them. And as a bonus for doing this, if I ever felt the need to toss some words around I could literally do that while I was in the kitchen (which I am in there often since I love cooking).
So I decided to put up one of my poems I created while I was waiting for some brownies to cook. It’s not perfect and I am no Shakespeare, but I had fun making it up as I went.
Let me know what you think! If there is anything I should change around comment and let me know. If the Shakespeare words feel like a challenge you want to tackle too, I would love to know what you write. Let me know so I can check out your creation! Enjoy!
The Poisoned Question
Speak you woman and tell me thusly,
How dost thine know my torment and poison?
Dost thou see which love – or was it woe –
that hast striked me mortally?
Or perchance was it drunkard luck and question?
Be a jest!
Nay, be a dream!
The poison quenches my bosom’s merriment.
I yield to the future of discontents.
