It's national poetry month! To celebrate it, instead of bringing a bunch of comics to work on during my recent trip out to Portland, Oregon, I brought The Ode Less Traveled by Stephen Fry and a notebook to write in. After almost TWO YEARS of working my way through this book, I am happy to announce that I finally finished it off today! Thank goodness for long flights and even longer train rides.
Needless to say, it was one of the most challenging, yet rewarding books I have ever read. If you are interested in learning more about poetry, I highly recommend it!
There were a total of twenty poetry exercises in the book, and it looks like I left you all hanging back on exercise number nine, so I'll try to post the rest of my examples, a few each week and then I can get back to writing some new limericks!
