            golden leaves are falling down.

Assignment Day 9: Cold, Concrete Poem, Anaphora/Epistrophe

Today’s Subject: Cold

From wintry weather to emotional aloofness to the fun you had during your heyday as a teen figure skating champion, write a poem that will send chills down our spines (literally or not).

Today’s Form: Concrete Poem

Generally speaking, any poem that’s typographically arranged to represent a specific shape (recognizable or not) is a concrete, or “shape” poem.

Today’s Device: Anaphoa/Epistrophe

Anaphora simply means the repetition of the same word (or cluster of words) at the beginning of multiple lines of verse in the same poem. Epistrophe is its counterpart: the repeated words appear at the end of lines.
