In honor of National Poetry Month this first quiz of round 2 features poetry from Ethan Coen’s new book The Day the World Ends (read yesterday’s post for details about the book). I’m also giving away the copy they sent me so I could make this quiz. All you have to do is guess at least answer on the quiz. You don’t have to get any right to be entered
You have until noon Sunday to submit your answers as a comment. Comment will be hidden until I post the answers. No Googling!
This round starts today and will last til August. The person with the most points will win a B&N gift card (total $ based on # of total participants, so please play) and a randomly selected participant will win a fun prize from me.
Have fun and Good Luck!
Unscramble the words in these poems
1. Uh-huh, I (LOVED) you once, it’s true,
And acted like the man that I
Believed you’d be attracted by-
And I myself (BELIEVED) the lie.
2. His (BRIEFCASE) was a lightish brown:
Its leather (TONGUE) would buckle down
3. A (HORSE) and (WAGON) bore you here:
We duly filed behind.
The day was dull, the winter drear,
Yet no one seemed to mind.
4. Eyes open to find-
And everything is still.
5. You rise
To dump a paw on either (SHOULDER),
And my (BODY) steadies as you let loll
Your great rough tongue.
6. They hurl their lightning bolts at me.
I duck- and dodge- and feint- and flee.
The great contend; the mighty (STRIVE);
The slippery, like me, (SURVIVE).
7. Who is this (NEWBORN),
Time will tell;
The old man (DYING)
We know well.
