What's In a Word? (posted by Lillian)
"SO WHAT IS THE EXACT WORD REQUIRED FOR TODAY’S QUADRILLE?
It’s WOUND. How did you just pronounce the word in your head when you read it? It can be pronounced in two different ways, each with its own meaning. It is indeed a homograph!"
"Want to make today’s prompt a bit tougher? Instead of just using one pronunciation/meaning of WOUND as one of the 44 words, include the word WOUND twice – as two of the 44 words – using both of its meanings/pronunciations and thus including the homographic pair. Whether you use the word “wound” once or twice in the body of the poem, the poem must be exactly 44 words in length- not including the title."
I am wounded, bleeding.
Please call for an
ambulance, but take no
chances. Wrap my leg
up first. Don’t curse,
Do you want me
to lose my leg? Yes,
you can. Do not get
all wound up; use your
shirt, and tie it tightly.
