Prompt–Monday, October 31

Take a book you’ve read recently that you underlined like crazy because you liked the language so much. Now create a found poem with your favorite lines. Feel free to break for lines and whatnot. Name the title and author.

Cane by Jean Toomer

Over the crest of the hill
he couldn’t sing to them.
Where’s th beauty in that?
When you had eyes, did
you ever see th beauty
of th world? Her face
is pale–worlds of shadow
planes and solids.

He is a candle that dances
in a grove swung with pale
balloons…in swift shadow.
You came just a month too late.
