Author’s Note: Another Scramble Poem, which I’m pretty sure I invented. Full rules are below, but basically, every word can be made only of the letters in the title of the poem. I hope some creative readers will take on the challenge of creating and sharing their own Scramble Poems.
World war did dawn
World in aw
No warn, no word
No cair, no lord
Awl ran, awl cri
No aid, awl di
Arid land raw
Cold crow caw
Scramble Poem rules:
–-Make a poem using only the letters in the title of the poem. (Add a parenthetical subtitle — which does not count toward the available letters — to describe the topic more fully, if desired.)
–You may use each letter only as many times as it appears in the title for each new word made.
–-Create full words wherever possible, but phonemes, word parts, and faux words can be used when necessary, as long as they add meaning (i.e. “n” for “and”, “ar” for “are”, etc.)
–Half the fun for me is finding the words within the words myself (in fact the original concept for this came while playing the word scramble game app WordScapes). But, if needed, a good site to find words in words is: https://www.wordplays.com/words-in-a-word/
