Originating Elsewhere

napowrimo2009_1 The challenge today is to find a passage of text, preferably from an out-of-print book, and turn it into a poem. This process is appropriately called a found poem.

All else was

Silent

For old Mrs. Earth was still fast asleep and like many pretty people

She looked still prettier asleep than awake

The great elm-trees in the gold-green meadows were fast asleep

above

and the cows fast asleep

beneath

 

 

-adapted from The Water Babies by Charles Kingsley (1917) found on GoogleBooks
