Friday, January 8, 2013 -- Quotations about Poetry

Extra activities: 
Play Exquisite Corpse  

"Adjective, Noun, Verb, Adjective, Noun."
An adjective describes a noun: red, fat, slimy. 
A noun names a person, place, or thing: hiccup, boy, desk, river, apple, flea, schoolhouse.
A verb is an action word: jump, scoop, hug. 
The purple desk slides into jade green rivers.

The exquisite corpse will drink the young wine."

Slung trousers melt in a roseate box.
A broken calendar oscillates like sunny tin.
The craven linden growls swimmingly. Blowfish.
A glittering roof slaps at crazy ephemera.
