Date: between 10/11/97 and 11/21/97
Setting: senior year of college - near Halloween
Form: free verse (see notes)
Notes: I really don't have to note the reason for selecting this poem for today, so I'll avoid the urge.
I did not begin exploring poetic form until way after college. Until exploring my first sonnet (see--Time Capsule: C Your Way Out of It), I honestly do not think I knew anything (formal) about meter. I say formal because (obviously) there is no doubt that being exposed to poetry (especially children's poetry) you can hear the rhythm. Anyway, while this is free verse, you can hear a rhythm.
Artifact I: Copy of the first typed image...with far too many periods.
