Riddle Poem

I recently started my English students blogging. To help them, I had my goat, Myson, start a blog.  He did one of their assignments–a riddle poem.  They were to describe something from nature in a vivid and unique way.  Here is Myson’s poem.

Raucous yells across the fields
Eyes and eyes and eyes watching–
navy iris surrounded by turquoise;
gold and copper eyelashes–
searching treetops for friends,
a flash of iridescent indigo
heralds the arrival of another
shimmering jade chassis
to join the ostentation.

I am sharing today at d’Verse Poets for their open link.

    • The assignment is based off of Emily Dickinson’s poem “A Route of Evanescence” which describes a hummingbird, but it makes no sense until you already know what she’s describing. LOL
