It’s time to leave the stormy month of April behind and move into the warmth of May. That also means I will experiment with one or more poetic styles that begin with the letter E. I did some research and decided that Echo Poems might be fun to write. They seem so simple that I am sure they will be challenging to write. The pattern used in creating this verse is a type of call and response. Reading these poems out loud might be fun. I titled this poem The Cold, Dark Rain.
Creating an Echo Poem and The Cold Dark Rain
- The simple rule for creating an Echo Poem for the writer to repeat each line’s end syllable(s).
- The repeated syllable(s) must have its own line.
- These poems are short and to the point.
- There are no meter or rhyming rules.
- Repetition can take many creative forms.
I am excited about playing with this style of poetry. I worry about the repetition used to create this style. The only thing left for me to do is pick a theme and start writing. May could be a long month.
The Cold Dark Rain Cold water falling from sky Sky Filled with clouds dark, Ark Built with sturdy wood. Wood To keep out the steady Rain.
