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.
