Assignment #3 has a word prompt of Trust to be written in the form of an Acrostic using the device of Internal rhyme. I had trouble getting in the internal rhyme, but here is my poem:
Elinor is my trusted mother all my life.
Love is all she talks about when
I visit her in the memory care center.
Now she doesn’t even remember I was there,
Or have any idea when I will visit again.
Really all she knows now is a moment and then it’s gone.
I’m fairly new at writing poetry. I just decided to give it a try with the Writing 201: Poetry course over the last two weeks of February. Let me know what you think, and comments are appreciated.
