Cailleach has descended down
Gurgling, spitting effervescence flows
Now Brighid dons her fiery crown
And an airy, colorful mantle throws
Across the lands. Awake and take wing.
Rise up and reconvene at the spring.
Today’s prompt from NaPoWriMo :There are many good poems based on myths. Lots of these use Greek or Roman myths. Consider Tennyson’s Ulysees or this more modern example by A.E. Stallings. But today I challenge you to write a poem based on a non-Greco-Roman myth. You could write a poem inspired byNorse mythology, or perhaps by one of these creatures from Japanese legend. Every time and place and culture has its myths and legends, so there’s plenty to choose from. Happy writing!
The boy wrote this poem using a POEMSTART from Jack Prelutsky:
My cats are less than one foot tall
And haven’t any voice.
They never answer when I call,
For they haven’t any ears
So I’m in tears.
