I’m really sorry. Sometimes you just can’t resist going with the obvious. It’s just too easy. Someone has to do it.
Today’s Blogging A to Z letter is G (if you haven’t been keeping up). I actually had to think about this one because today’s NaPoWriMo is to write a palinode. A palinode is a retraction of a statement you made in another earlier poem. A reversal of opinion you might say, but in poetic form. If in one poem you said that the blue sky made you feel happy, you might write a palinode that says that the blue sky now makes you feel sad.
In my case, I knew exactly which poem to choose for my palinode. But, hang it all, there’s that letter G thing to attend to. So, I did what any poet with young children would do…I went and found the children’s dictionary and began looking up G words. And I found one. So, without further ado, my palinode.
Have a great Wednesday!
A Genuine Apology to the Apple
By Jessica Scott
I gave two cents of common sense,
But in my defense
I really do like apples.
I like them all big and small,
Especially in the fall,
Nice juicy apples.
I like them red and baked in bread,
Like I said
I really like them apples.
They’re good for your health, they might bring you wealth,
But maybe not stealth,
You really should eat apples.
So do not think or make a stink
That I’m a fink…
Because I really do like apples.
