Whether it’s a hero or a heroine, your poem today should focus on a person with an outsized personality — someone who makes a splash (or a mess) whenever he or she crosses others’ path. A parent, a teacher, a writer, Batman: we all know someone heroic, whether in real life or in fiction. Of course, if you’re feeling less laudatory today, feel free to turn things around by writing about an antihero or a villain.
Today’s form : Ballad
Today’s device: Anaphora and Epistrophe
I came across a girl with brown eyes
The girl full of life
Caring for her friends
A beautiful girl I came across
I came across a girl with fair skin
The girl who lifted her brow
Blinked her eyes, twitched her lips
A silly girl I came across
I came across a girl with frizzy hair
The girl who said in a serious tone
And cracked a lame joke
A friendly girl I came across!
