Inspired by the spate of book awards and "best of" lists announced recently, I thought it might be fun to write some centos using book titles. Here's what the creative people came up with this week.
cloudscome over at a wrung sponge gives us a cento inspired by the Cybils finalists. It is called Short List.It's not too late if you still want to play. Read the directions here. Then leave a comment and I'll add your cento to the list.
Laura Purdie Salas has poetry on the brain, so she used titles from poetry books. It's titled Why I'm Crazy.
Elaine at Wild Rose Reader has written two centos using titles of poetry books. The first is a lovely little haiku. The second is a poetry invitation.
Sara Lewis Holmes at Read*Write*Believe is thinking about her pile of books to be read. Her cento, An Alphabetized, Prognosticating Cento of Fortuitous Couplets, is meant to organize this pile. Good luck with that, Sara!
MotherReader also gives us a list of upcoming reads in her cento.
Susan at Wizards Wireless takes us on a walk back through 70 years of the Caldecott medal winners with her cento (story).
I was inspired by some of my favorite books to write a poem entitled Nobody's Fool.
