- one, choose the words that catch your attention
- two, group them together just right so they catch your attention all over again
- three, they resemble a poem of some sort (even if free verse - another poetry form that begins with the letter f).
So, while I found many interesting texts, pages, and more with words that I found and seemed just perfect, I found it very difficult to give them form. But this is what I came up with (and I am going to continue trying, for myself, to come with something more) - from Chapter 17 of the book 'Number the Stars' by Lois Lowry - one that I really enjoyed reading and was very glad to have picked up.
When Freedom Gleamed
Churchbells rang, people wept
In every window, eyes bright
Flowers on a numbered ground
A memory, discolored, but still with hope
Hope - tended and polished,
Brought music to sound,
People as neighbors, as friends
and the text's image/MS Paint version I came up with
