The Reverie posted an interesting challenge in honor of Jane Austen. We are given 11 words (in true Austen style) and asked to write a poem with at least 7 of them. It got in 10. Check out the challenge and give it a try.
To acknowledge a want,
to trust in a wish,
evokes a certain wonder.
What good fortune it would be,
to wear our pride without prejudice,
to yearn, not for possessions
but for the good in man.
A single hope,
a solemn wish
to bring peace
to the world.
I don’t know Austen well enough to know if your work captures her style, but I do know that I like it!
Thank you. It is not her style but certainly the message is more fitting for today’s world.
I can definitely pick out the Austen references here, but just overall it’s a lovely poem!
Thank you very much.
This is lovely, Susan 😀
Thank you. 🙂
Nicely done! Sometimes when certain words have to be used, it feels forced, but this flowed nicely 🙂
Thank you. I knew it wouldn’t be remotely like her writing so I just let it flow in another direction.
Nice work. I don’t Austen well enough to know if you captures her style, but I enjoyed it
Thanks. Not her style at all but a far more relevant statement these days.
Yes it is. I wish we can find peace in this world.
