Poetry Challenge #30

Loop Poem

Round and round and round we go!

In a loop poem, the last word of a line becomes the first word of the next line and so on until the last word of the poem which should be the first word of the poem.

Here’s an example I made up:

Read a book,
book a plane,
plane a board,
board a train,
train a dog,
dog-ear a page,
page my doctor,
doctor the soup,
soup up the horse,
horse around time,
time for a walk,
walk home and read.

Now you try it. Can you write a loop poem of at least seven lines?

Set the timer for 7 minutes.

Start writing!

Don’t think about it too much; just do it.
