Prompt #44 Make Your Own Wordle

March 3, 2011

  

Make Your Own Wordle

This prompt will entail a few steps. First, go here: Don Quixote
http://www.lyricsmode.com/lyrics/g/gordon_lightfoot/don_quixote.html

You will find the lyrics to a Gordon Lightfoot song titled Don Quixote.

Randomly choose twenty words from those lyrics, more if you wish. Then use those words, at least ten of them, to create a poem, just as you would do with a wordle list. You might wish to site the song and songwriter somewhere in your post. This song was chosen because it is rich in imagery, tells a myth-like story, and has a variety of words to choose from.

  

Come back next Wednesday when you see,It’s Post Your Poems Day!” and leave a link to the poem on your blog. If you don’t have a blog, then please, post your poem in the comment itself.    ***    You are invited to respond to the prompt given here, but if you have something else you’re just itching to share, please feel welcome in doing that. Our first desire here is to encourage you to write and learn and share.    ***    When leaving comments to other’s poems, please be appreciative and encouraging. We are not a poem “critique” site (unless someone specifically asks for that). Be kind with each other (and yourself!).    ***    Please consider including a link with your blog poem back to the prompt response here at We Write Poems so that others may see and join our community. More participants do make better soup!

    PSYCHED.

    So often the Wordles get too eclectic… free-form option is definitely helpful. 🙂
