Joe Wocoski Poems
Shakespeare Sonnet Da Vinci Codes
We have all heard that Da Vinci created his own cryptograms. I thought you might enjoy some simple Da Vinci coded sonnets. For these simple Da Vinci codes, the very first line of one sonnet in this section reads: Morf tseriaf serutaerc ew erised esaercni From fairest creatures we desire increase
Snowed In By A Warm Fire
A visit to an Inn on top of a hill. A view, a valley, a village, a pond. Snow already covering the ground. Snow falling steadily all around.
Shakespeare Sonnet Number Fumbles
In these number fumble tomfooleries the vowels of each word have been replaced with numbers. All you need to do is figure out which number equals which vowel, then write out the words between the printed sonnet lines, for example: Wh8n f6rt7 w0nt8rs sh5ll b8s08g8 th7 br6w When forty winters shall besiege thy brow
The Single Tear Drop Of Peace
The Single Tear Drop of Peace What if all the tear drops, of all the world, Were added together for only one year?
Seekers Of The Lighted Holy Grail
As if searching for the ancient Holy Grail, they drive up and down all the back roads
Shakespeare Sonnet Word Scrambles
At the bottom of each sonnet are nine scrambled words. All you need to do is unscramble each word then find and circle each word in the sonnet. Sonnet # ____
On Catching The Summer Breeze
A deep blue sky with light wisps of clouds, A sail raised high up on the mast, The rush of water along port side, Skimming across the lake in your sailboat.
Be Not Afraid Of Nature's Beauty
Be not afraid to admire Nature's beauty. Or hold a dogwood flower. All things must stop at some point in time, And thus become an eternal moment, a still life.
Magic Midnight Butterflies
Late at night maple butterflies hover Over iridescent white flowers; Spreading their love from one flower To another, unseen by all.
On A Winter Afternoon
A gray mare standing beside The snow covered wooden fence. The fence along a country road Icy and well traveled.
Snowed In By A Warm Fire
A visit to an Inn on top of a hill.
A view, a valley, a village, a pond.
Snow already covering the ground.
Snow falling steadily all around.
The hills, the trees, the branches,
The drives, the roads, the highways.
All are covered in new fallen snow.
All are silent as the snow falls.
