Square Poem

At dVerse yesterday I saw Sam's challenge to write what is called a square poem. Six lines of six words, the first word of each line reading like the first line across. Check out his instructions here. I tried it simply because it seemed impossible. The following is not earth-shaking poetry, but it gave my brain cells a bit of a workout, not always a good thing :) 

Hear, pray tell, this bitter truth:
pray  not for unending youth.
Tell  Pan: soft and pouting sighs,
This  is certainly not too wise.
Bitter but better than foolish lies:
Truth  shining bravely  in one's eyes.


  1. Love it! Like an acrostic on steroids!

  2. Oh, good work, Sherry. It looks impossible to me. I've got to go out now to run some errands, but I have a feeling I'm going to try this, just for the heck of it, when I get back.

  3. Sherry, good for you for attempting this. I passed on this challenge.


I so appreciate you taking the time to read and comment.
Thank you so much. I will be over to see you soon!
