Written for: dVerse Poets Pub - Poetics: Carroll Crush Saga
(posted by Sanaa)
"For today’s Poetics, I invite you to play a game with me called, “Carroll Crush Saga.”
The idea here is to select three titles (from a list of Lewis Carroll’s poems) and to blend them together to form a subject for a new poem.
Note- You don’t have to include the title as part of your poem but please do mention it as an epigraph and give due credit.
For example: ‘A strange wild song’ + ‘all in the golden afternoon’ + ‘echoes.’
. 1 Jabberwocky
. Brother and Sister
. The Walrus and the Carpenter
. A Strange Wild Song
. All in the Golden Afternoon
. My Fancy
. The Hunting of the Snark
. A Game of Fives
. A Sea Dirge
. The Aged Aged Man
. A Boat beneath a Sunny Sky
. Rules and Regulations
. The Three Voices
. Epilogue to through the Looking Glass
. Four Riddles
. The White Knight’s Song
. A Valentine
. The Voice of the Lobster
. Size and Tears
. Lays of Sorrows
. Theme with Variations
Three Three Voices:
*The Walrus, the Carpenter, and the Lobster
Fantasy Idol was just getting
underway, when a fight broke out
among the contestants. Carpenter–
usually reserved–accused Walrus–
a blustery bully–of stealing his oyster
songs. Things were heating up
back stage, when Lobster clicked-clacked
onto the stage, and interrupted
with a quirky quadrille. He won.
*Titles by Lewis Carroll
I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York.
My goal is to create and share poetry with others
who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve
in you, and feel your sparks as well.
