Today, write a poem in which each line ends in an L sound or an R sound.
Or use only R sounds at the end (that was the original assignment from a class I took).
Or end each line with L or S sounds.
If that feels like too many choices, you can complicate it up with these extra challenges:
- 25 lines
- 4 beats per line
- Don’t use the same word twice
If you introduce a different end sound or change the number of beats in a line, remember that the line will really stand out. Use it!
And if you have a hard time getting started, write out a list of words that end with the sound or sounds you’ve chosen.
(It’s funny how in poems I almost never use exclamation marks, but here I have three. Hmm.)
