EXERCISE Poetry Challenge #18 -- The Buck

Discussion in 'REFINING WRITING' started by Fluffy, Jul 10, 2011.

  1. I'm still out of town visiting family and something I've noticed during lots of these trips, are deer! Tons of them bravely venturing down the roads; some are even in yard. This seemed like a good inspiration for poetry. Write a poem about a buck, which is a male deer. If not, you're welcome to write about a family, or a doe, which is a female deer. If you need some help on what exactly to write about, take a look at this list:

    • Antlers
    • Prancing
    • Grazing
    • Leadership
    • Bambi

    I hope I could inspire you with my lovely list. XD I encourage you to make the poem(s) look pretty with bbcodes. If you need some guidance as to what style your poem should be, take a look at Shadow Poetry.
     
  2. He stood as stiff as a board,
    In some random neighbors lawn.
    People stopped and stared,
    Wondering about exactly what,
    Was going on there.
    Could he be real?
    Or just another decoration?
    All questions were answered when,
    He took off prancing,
    Into the nearby trees.
     
  3. The White Stag

    Legend tells of a mystic stag,
    An animal that few have seen,
    Hiding deep within the quag,
    Roaming the forests and moors of green.


    An animal that few have seen,
    A stag white as new-fallen snow,
    Roaming the forests and moors of green,
    Rarely to any does it show.


    A stag white as new-fallen snow,
    Creature of mysteries untold,
    Rarely to any does it show,
    The powerful magic that it holds.


    Creature of mysteries untold,
    Harbinger of purity and light,
    The powerful magic that it holds,
    Brings all of nature back to life.


    Harbinger or purity and light,
    Guardian of all life and earth,
    Brings all of nature back to life,
    Symbol of death and rebirth.


    Guardian of all life and earth,
    Hiding deep within the quag,
    Symbol of death and rebirth,
    Legend tells of a mystic stag.
