Ok. April is Poetry month. Now, I know that most of y'all here don't write poetry. But, still, it's poetry month. I think that should count for something, you know?

So. I want you to take a poem, any poem you like, and re-write it as prose. Twist it if you like. Bend it completely out of shape if you must. But make it have SOME connection to a poem in it's inception... even if it's just that they both start with the same word.

Come back here and leave in your comments a link to your piece, and to the original poem so we can ooh and ahh at your cleverness.

Yes. There will be a random drawing. No, I don't know what for yet.

Now, go.

And the Winner Is...

The often imitated, never duplicated----


If you haven't read her entry yet, you seriously don't want to miss it. She did a fabulous job inserting herself into an old James Whitcomb Riley poem, updating it and twisting it so that it still accomplishes its original intent of frightening children to death. Well, perhaps not quite to death, but it's dang scary.

Thanks also to Jess and Izzybella for participating. It's been a delight reading what you have come up with, and I'm looking forward to more this month when Trista tells us what we get to write about!
