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.

  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.
