The entire Progressive Poem is here today! (if you are here for Z - go HERE ) These are the poets that contributed a line each to Irene Latham's brainchild, the Progressive Poem. This year's poem was begun by Matt Forrest Esenwine, with a great idea: using found lyrics from songs. Each day a new poet added a new "found" line from a song...right up until today. Today is the last day, and it is my turn to supply a line. I have written a rather lengthy explanation of what went on in my head and on paper. You can, of course, read it, or skip down to the ending...well, not the ENDING... save that. Go to the middle where the poem is, to read the last line. Then go to the END if you are in the mood for - um - a laugh? more music? something different?

Another beautiful idea, Donna! Every word is so lovingly chosen, and those final words of each verse are great. I especially like 'Something once hidden/Now shown". I hope you're keeping all these for the baby to read when older. You will help him to love poetry too.ReplyDelete
Very sweet! Did you invent this form? I like it.ReplyDelete
Thanks, and yes, I guess I did invent it. Maybe I should name it!
This so beautiful, Donna. Love the rhythm.ReplyDelete
