Hehe, I'll start a new thread, this is taking Poet deVine's idea and a poem I think has a little relevance this week. I'll tell ya what it is if a couple people give it a shot.

sky,
stone,
die,
throne
lie.
them,
them
lie.

There it is, the challenge to take these words, each the final word of a line of poetry, and fill in the begining of each line...

Also, if you have a poem you'd like to try this with, post it, I'd love to give it a shot!

From first light of star in winter sky,
to rest behind the burial stone,
for us did our Saviour die,
No king upon an earthly throne
but in a manger the babe did lie.
His life lived for men, all of them,
His life taken, for sins, all o f them
He gives the truth to every lie.

Evening sun in western sky
Casts shadow 'cross the stone
Where lies the soldiers left to die
On battle's crimson throne
Promises of peace a lie
The truth would sure destroy them
No hero song was sung for them
In silence now they lie

you have not truly met the poet.

Wow! I'm impressed you guys. I love both of your poems! I thought with the repeating words in the last couple lines it might be a little difficult, guess I was wrong

The poem is from the Lord of the Rings, it's the little poem about the Rings of Power.. which I don't think I can repost here. Thank you both for accepting my challenge
