Welcome to the Saturday Mix – Lucky Dip,22 February2020!
For this week’s Lucky Dip, I have reached into my mystery bag and pulled out a Tautogram.The topic is up to you!
You may be thinking to yourself, What on earth is a Tautogram?
Luckily, Writer’s Digest has an explanation…
The tautogram is best explained by its Greek root words of “tauto” meaning “the same” and “gramma” meaning “letter.” Basically, all words in the poem begin with the same letter.
So pick a letter–any letter–and get poeming!
Note: A variant form of this poem could employ a unique starting letter for each stanza.
Example of a Tautogram
Thoroughly Terse Tautogram
Twelve turkeys trekked through Turkey
to tell tales that tackled topsy-
turvy televangelists traipsing through
turnkey topics turned to tropics,
though ten teased topical tenets.
