Well for our current scrapbook (kinda like a book report) at school, we have to get together a bunch of poems, and then I thought: "Hey! I know artists! Maybe they've written some poems! And if not, they probably know people who have!" (this was originially for dA, so please bear with me)
So here we are.
I would love it if you would send me any poems you have, but I need the following:
1 poem about a (non-fictional, biblical is ok) Historical Event
1 poem written by an African American (not trying to be racist or anything, it's one of the requirements)
1 poem by a Native American
1 poem following a specific format such as haiku, ode, free verse, sonnet, etc.
1 dedication poem to someone (a poem that I will choose someone to dedicate it to)
1 self-written poem (already taken care of [see my gallery)
1 poem that shows strong use of Figurative Language - simile, metaphor, personification, onomatopoeia, etc
3 poems by the Same Poet (i guess this could be a sort of grand prize)
(Song lyrics also accepted)
I will also need the full name anybody who sends me a Poem, as well as the title of the poem (as well as the category[?]).
And remember, just because you don't have any poetry, someone you know may....or someone they know...or someone they know...you get the idea!
Also, as it's for school (a christian school), so please nothing very/too graphic
(sorry if this is the wrong place for this thread)
