Weekend Prompts-Joy In The Autumn



Rain, Rain,
A Freshman from Spain,
She comes to America to get her degree,
Geese, geese,
Flying South in ease,
Catching her eyes,
Joy in the autumn, surprise!

  16. Quite delightful. Lovely, the way you conceive what could have been two independent poems and then bring them seamlessly together to make a poem in which the whole is greater than than the two parts.

  18. Wow~ness!

    You are combining several prompts into one piece! This is amazingness.

    Also, I'm seriously considering studying abroad for a semester, but I have a cat, so I'm not sure how that would work. But, I am thinking about it.
