Hi, teachers! Here’s the answering quatrain to yesterday’s What’s Inside couplet!
Petals like velvet, the color of blood,
that fill up the breeze with a soft sweet perfume
will flow down the hill in a flowerful flood
as sunshine uncurls, unfurls each bloom
A Note from the Poet:
My favorite words in a poem are almost always the unexpected ones. In this poem, I think I used two of them: ?blood? and ?flowerful.? I needed ?blood? for the rhyme, but I also liked the idea of using blood as a beautiful color, not as something bad or violent. And I liked ?flowerful,? because 1) making up words is fun, and 2) it reminds me of the word ?powerful,? and it makes me see a huge flood of flowers!
