Hello dear Toads and Pond followers. Fireblossom here, standing in for Margaret this week.
At the risk of drawing down the wrath of our very own Grapeling, I am going to ask you to use a list. However, unlike the Get Listed feature, YOU are going to provide the list, not me.
I want poems which include a list of some kind. Here are some ideas about types of lists you could use:
ingredients for a recipe, whether for food, a potion, or something else
things required or prohibited
symptoms and/or treatments
instructions for something
There are, no doubt, many others. Feel free to come up with your own! Here is the thing, though. Don't just mention a list without telling us at least some of what's on it. Details, baby. That's what's required here. Please write a NEW poem specifically for this challenge, then link up! Have fun, listies.
One must make a distinction however: when dragged into prominence by half poets, the result is not poetry, nor till the autocrats among us can be “literalists of the imagination”—above insolence and triviality and can present for inspection, imaginary gardens with real toads in them, shall we have it.
