Teen Writing Prompt 688


I thought it might be fun to create a nonsense poem. What’s a nonsense poem you ask well it’s a poem that places peculiar characters in amusing situations. They are whimsical and humorous and have made up words.

I can’t think of examples so for this one I will leave it to the experts. Here is the chorus from Edward Lear’s poem.



The Jumblies

Far and few, far and few,

Are the lands where the Jumbles live;

Their heads are green, and their hands are blue

And they went to sea in a sieve.
