Recent times has seen the return of VERStype's regular Jigsaw Cut-up poetry challenge. The site posts two poems from which the writer selects words and phrases to create their own found poem. June's choices were Rudyard Kipling's A Charm and Angel or Demon by Victor Hugo. These are great fun to do and a real challenge as well as exposing you to poems and poets you may not have read. Why not give it a go next time? Look out for the alert via @VERStype.
Below is my response to Kipling and Hugo:
Clutch the hand of Virgil
Take thy ease in his presence
Treasure the soaring of his voice
The echoes dazzling, breathless
Spreading the loveliest reverie
To sweeten and make whole
The woe of all uncounted folk
A writer - I think that says it all.
