Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

What I learned in creative writing class.

When writing poems be concise
Is my teacher’s sound advice


And verily be warned, quoth she,
Don’t make your language flowery


Don’t use languid, pale or wan
Not diaphanous, shard or yon


And gossamer particularly
Should not be used in front of me


And although it’s not a crime
It’s thought passé to make it rhyme


But looking over what I’ve writ
It seems to me I must admit


That I don’t think I’ll ever be
A writer of great poetry
