Yay! Finally we have reached the end of the journey with pride, elation, learning and growth! Thanks to Maureen for this stupendous journey.
The challenge today is to write a poem that engages with a strange and fascinating fact. It could be an odd piece of history, an unusual bit of art trivia, or something just plain weird.
Playing with the words all day, I decided to dive into the world of words and found some interesting facts (I am certainly going to write a post about it!)
I have written my poem on the basis of two facts about world’s smallest book and world’s longest book.
Here’s my take. Hope you like it!
Poem: The world of words
How diverse is the world of words
How magnificent is the influence of words
I am amazed to know the fact
That has challenged my belief of words
The smallest book in the world
Whose pages can only be turned with a needle
Shows the ingenuity of the genius publisher
And the grit of the book’s reader
But that doesn’t impede Proust’s efforts
To launch the longest book in the world
I wonder how he managed to compile
More than nine million words in a file
How queer is the world of words
Fascination and learning it confers
Each word has its saga and origin
Each word has a place of it own
