is for Poetry.
And this one is Picture Perfect. It’s called Swan and Shadow by John Hollanders, and mesmerizes me every time I see and read it. It’s not just a poem for your ears, but for your eyes as well. I didn’t want to type it…I’d make too many mistakes and you wouldn’t have a Picture Perfect Poem then of a a swan and its reflection, but probably more like a T-Rex eating a goat, which would just be wrong.
Brilliant! Hollanders’ Poem is a masterpiece.
Have you ever made a Picture Poem before? Me either. But if I did, I might do a Hippopotamus because they’re fat and I’d have lots of room to put words (except in the tail). Maybe someday when I’m bored and flipping rubberbands, I’ll try the hippo Poem (but don’t hold your breath).
