Random Fridays: Book Title Poetry
Hey'a, everyone! It's been a while since I participated in Random Fridays, but this week's topic, I couldn't resist. Emma's introduced me to the idea of book title poetry, and I thought I'd give it a try. The following poems are meant to be read as parts of the same story- though each can, I believe, stand on its own.

(And yes, I know, I might've cheated a little on adding words. I think it's ok, though.)

Act I
[A] Golden Daughter
By darkness hid,
Writing magic:
Words of radiance
[To] white.

Act II
The Hero of Ages,
[Turned from]
The way of kings
[By] a swiftly tilting planet,
[Now] out of darkness rising.

[Shattered by the]
Orphan's Song;
The ravaged realm
From darkness won
[By] the return of the king.
I hope you enjoyed these! (And that I might've inspired you to create some title poetry of your own!)
Thanks for reading!

  1. Very nice! Thanks for participating this week.

  2. What an interesting idea! I like what you've got here.

    I might try this... but I can also see myself getting distracted by trying to make the poems rhyme. I'm not so great at free verse. 0.0

    1. Thank you very much!

      You should try! And yeah, free verse can be hard. But it gets easier, IMO.

  3. That's pretty awesome! I've got to try this!

    Prince Caspian
    (at)the Ranch on the Cariboo
    Raising Diary Goats.

    Hm, yours turned out better.
    I also like how you connected the poems with acts. That's very creative, the whole thing!

    1. Yours does create an interesting picture, though. xD
      Thank you very much!

  4. That's so cool! Yours were awesome!! :)

  5. Oh my goodness oh my goodness this is SO cool. o.O I may have to try this. I'm not at home so I can't look at my bookshelf, but I'll have to do this later. :D

    1. I look forward to seeing what you come up with! Thanks for reading!


I'd love to hear your thoughts! But remember: it pays to be polite to dragons.
