Today we are exploring loop poetry!
This one is a fairly freeform compared to some of the other ones, and I promise it's easier than the paradelle!
How to Loop:
There are no restrictions on meter or syllables or rhyme schemes (YAY!)
BUT we have a few rules!
- Take the last word of a line. Skip a line. Use that word as the first word of that line.
- I know, sounds harder than it is, so basically take the last word of the FIRST line and use it as the first word of the THIRD line. Take the last word of the SECOND line and use it as the first word of the FORTH line. Last word of the THIRD line is the first word of the FIFTH line. And it keeps going on and on like that.
- Some people do it by stanzas.
- There is also a variation where there's no skipping and the last word of the line simply becomes the first word of the next line. Simpler, but personally I think it's a LOT harder.
Got it? Sounds fun right!
