Day 22 and 19 AprPAD NaPoWriMo



I hoped that he’d never love me,
And he’s never kissed my mouth,
But I’m not a stricken bird,
Unable to reach the south.

I know not if he loves me,
Tonight my heart is glad;
His kiss was oh so wonderful,
Beyond all the dreams I had.

~ Original poem written by Sarah Teasdale

  1. You did very well with this prompt. From having done it myself, I know it is not easy to write an ‘opposite’ poem that makes sense. You accomplished it.

    1. It’s actually a lot of fun trying to keep it all strung together, retain the meter and rhythm, but change the meaning to the exact opposite. Fun, fun, fun!
