Vickie makes a little book
When I wrote last fall about making a book of "newspaper poetry" and invited readers to copy the idea, Vickie Wheatley left a comment that she was going to make one herself. Yesterday I was so happy to see her finished book, and it's wonderful! She gave me permission to share it with you.
I had used early/late as the theme for my little book; Vickie used up/down, and found lots of raw material. Since both "up" and "down" are parts of so many idioms, she had a lot more variety than I found with my theme. Here are a few of her pages:
Just as I found when making my book, Vickie discovered that some of her pages strongly resembled poetry. Best of all, her husband, who writes music, used some of the "poetry" as a basis for a new song!
Well, done, Vickie! And thanks for sharing your work with us.
