Poem along with the first ever April PAD Challenge Countdown, in which Robert Lee Brewer shares a prompt and a poem (to get things started) in the 10 days leading up to the 2020 April Poem-A-Day Challenge. For today's prompt, write a response poem.
For today’s prompt, write a response poem. That is, write a poem that responds to another poem. Could be a poem by another poet or even your own from earlier in this challenge.
Remember: These prompts are just springboards; you have the freedom to jump in any direction you want.
Re-create Your Poetry!
Revision doesn’t have to be a chore–something that should be done after the excitement of composing the first draft. Rather, it’s an extension of the creation process!
In the 48-minute tutorial video Re-creating Poetry: How to Revise Poems, poets will be inspired with several ways to re-create their poems with the help of seven revision filters that they can turn to again and again.
Here’s my attempt at a Response Poem:
"Another Song of Myself"
Perhaps, you could
when next you sound
your mighty yawp!
