Today I Wish...

by Rabbit Stu

IMPORTANT NOTE: This is a piece of a longer writing project. You can view the entire project here: Today I Wish...

The following is a piece of writing submitted by Rabbit Stu on September 28, 2008
"I've noticed that all my "Today I Wish" poems start out with the first line made of 3 iambs followed by an anapest, but after the first line I always switch to iambic or anapestic.

I thought this time I'd try keeping the combined iamb/anapest meter through the whole poem."

Today I Wish that I Was a Worm

Today I wish that I was a worm;
I'd creep and crawl and wriggle and squirm.
I'd hide in all the unlikely spots -
On sidewalks, roads, and cracked flower pots,
But best of all, 'twould give me delight
To be the one who causes such fright,
When you, surprised and quite unaware,
Unearth me in your half-eaten pear!
