I like your poem very much mvp.

I've always found Alice to be a nightmarish text rather than an amusing fantasy.

I've written a poem, but am going to wait to see the variation in poetry we get sent in before I post it here.

( Have you read Mu Beta's poem?)

The challenge is off to a very good start so far.

I got a bit carried away. I should have been doing other things, and then I started playing - well here is my Challenge Entry

Where are we supposed to put these? Just in text form on here? Or make an entry? And then put that in AWW?

Create: endeavours in reading, writing, rhythm, blues, art, photography, and biscuits.

Please submit them here, it will easier for all to find them then.

If you'd like to put them in the AWW as well, please go ahead. You could also write yours as a journal if you'd prefer and copy and paste here.

I wrote mine in notepad and Paint . Then when I was happy I saved it on flickr.

We're probably going to make them all into a single Entry in the end.

OK, here's mine. It's a bit Game of Thrones inspired, and it has 42 words.


Crimson, crimson silent hearts
White a smiling crown
Arm and head, the beast it's said
On child of ten looked down

Hands still flat, and faces turned
It backs away from you
But pointing feet decidedly
Could not tell how or who

Hey! These are all very good. smiley - smiley I like the pictorial one with the roses.

Here's my feeble attempt:

people lie down on their faces
smiling at everything said,
soldiers, crimson with fury,
a wild beast: 'Off with her head!'

the royal children, these little dears,
jumping merrily hand in hand,
such the rule at processions,
hurried, nervous, grand.

who are these round the rose-tree?
people, obling and flat.
the guests? they're only a pack of cards.
needn't be afraid of that.

it's the same pattern of nonsense,
Idiots, timid. you see,
screamed, not very politely,
that two and two are three.

paulh, hiding under my bed

Every wild beast looked at her,
Smiling when it recognised her.
Nervous soldiers stopped, glaring
At the pack where they were.

She smiled, and merrily thought
How like a royal knave
She was, but could not
See the grand procession.

"What is your name?" The Queen said.
The child only bowed her head.

The entries so far are really, really good! Prose is my thing, actually, but I went off to the tea house to think, and came up with this. Perhaps it makes one think of a season, though I'm not sure which one.


Knave clubs a rose-tree
As a gardener corners
A crimson rabbit.

Gnomon - time to move on

So she came in crimson majesty,
Ornamented with diamonds,
Smiling at everything that was said.

The knave stood and recognised her.
Remember: hand in hand they lie,
His hand upon her arm, her head.

She stopped and looked
The guests noticing her nervous,
Talking in hurried manner.
"Who is this you see" they said.

She thought "I needn't be afraid
what would be the use of fury
I was only a child".
Timidly she smiled and turned her head.

I love the ones which have a calm, serene atmosphere, because the text used is such a violent affair.
