Daily Create #14: Poem of Stevenson


Today’s Daily Create assignment is: Poem of Stevenson— add some words to finish it
[ via http://tdc.ds106.us/ ]

The friendly cow all red and white,
Color value at it’s finest.
Grazed in green, bathed in blue
And felt the warmth, all in yellow.

She wanders lowing here and there,
but here was too close and there,
was too far.
There was nowhere for her to go.

And blown by all the winds that pass,
She came to me, head hung low
And said, “Anywhere, but here.”

  1. The first verse of your poem orientated the reader very well that your cow was outdoors i.e. blue sky and yellow sun. The invitation for the reader into your cows feelings is when you described how it was in the cows habitat, but where the cow was is not the place it wants to be. This was very well executed.

  2. I really enjoyed your poem. It was a well executed piece in that it explained the cow was out in the free. I really liked the use of the picture as it goes well with the border of your blog’s website. Keep up the good work.

  3. This was my favorite TDC this week! Did you enjoy it as much as I did? I am finding that this class is bringing out more and more of a new found love for poetry!
