My Different Poem - Poem by John Carter Brown

I have the feeling that I
Want to write some words that gel;
To put a hidden sentence in, to
Write them very well.

A piece of work, a
Poem all my friends can read and say:
'So this is how you make up
Different poems all the day! '

From all of my experience, all
My knowledge of our tongue, the
Other works were written, but my
Efforts are unsung.

And if my different poem is
Challenging for my brain, I know
For sure it's no-one else but
Me I'll have to blame.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I wrote this simply to see if I could write a poem with a 'hidden' proper sentence down the left hand side (first word of each sentence) . It wasn't as easy as you might think.Try it for yourself.


Written Jan 1995

    I've tried in the past to do a similar thing, didn't work either! Enjoyed this though. (Report) Reply
