Poem for a Pup
Puppy doodle doo
Give me back that shoe
It’s not your doggie plaything
But you look at me
With eyes that see
Deep into my everything
How can I be angry
You are likely hungry
And it’s your way of pleading
Your actions do say
"Mama I want to play
This is something I’m needing"
Let’s go on a jaunt
Whatever you want
I’ll always be here for you
Fetch me that ball
I will give you my all
You’re my puppy doodle doo

Ingrid is hosting D'Verse Poets tonight and has prompted us with Oral Poetry.
Begin to compose a poem without putting pen to paper: you can say the words in your head, or repeat them out loud. Record them, if you wish, as an aid to memory. Try to complete the poem as far as possible without writing it down. Think about the devices discussed above: regular rhythms, repeated phrases or ‘motifs’, alliteration and rhyme schemes – anything to aid the memory and help the words to flow. Alternatively, why not compose a stream-of-consciousness poem orally, recording the words as they come to you?
There are no strict rules here, but do try to compose at least some of the poem without writing it down immediately, perhaps stanza by stanza. Once you have written it down, read it aloud to yourself, and think about any improvements you could make: a kind of oral editing process.
