Hello, poets, friends from all over the world. It’s time for a new year, new poems. A new year feels like an empty notebook, and we all know that it’s good to start easy. I think we have all found how fun the Quadrille is, how challenging and rewarding the 44 words can be.
Let us start with a poem:
There was a little girl
by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
There was a little girl,
Who had a little curl,
Right in the middle of her forehead.
When she was good,
She was very good indeed,
But when she was bad she was horrid.
I leave the rest of the poem for you to fume about…
But the word is of course curl. As you might have seen we love words that can be used as noun and verbs. You might want to use it as an adjective (curly), or even you might want to talk about curling.
If you are new to Quadrille the rules are easy. Write a poem of exactly 44 words including the word curl. Link up the poem by clicking Mr Linky. Then read and get inspired on the other writings. The prompt is open for a week so remember to come back and check it out a few times.
And last of all: A happy new year.
