Wednesday Poetry Challenge

Since I am going to the woods “to live deliberately” (at least for a few days), I thought I would leave you with a Challenge; something that might keep you from getting into trouble… 😉
I would like you to write something in the style of an early 19th century Romantic poet; you know, Keats, Byron, Shelley, etc. Your choice – doesn’t have to be in anyone’s actual style, just make it sound otherworldly and romantic.
It doesn’t have to be a flash; you can take your time. I have flashed out an example opening stanza of what I am describing, thusly:

In woodland vale and faerie glen,
With hornèd brow, and manner keen,
Great Cernunnos, beheld I then,
With Nymphs and Dryads was he seen.

I think you get the idea. I look forward to seeing what you come up with.

Rhyme on! Continue reading
