I started reading The Ode Less Travelled today to celebrate Fry Day, and though I only got past the introduction and a few pages of the first chapter apparently that was enough to inspire me to write a poem. I'm going to post it, but keep in mind that I definitely don't claim that it's any good at all. I haven't even gotten to the part in the book on metre so I don't really know anything about writing poetry, and I haven't written a poem since I was an angsty teenage girl many years ago (and all of those were complete crap). Anyway, I wrote it in a couple of minutes so it's really short:
Mr. Stephen Fry
Is one hell of a guy.
He knows his craft
And he makes me laugh
To the point where I almost cry.
Now that I think about it, it's more of a limerick, but the point is that his book is already inspiring me to create and I've barely even started reading it.
