Assignment: write a poem similar to “Knoxville Tennessee” by Nikki Giovanni

by imlikeabirdillonlyflyaway

I always like the country


You can lie

On a hammock

Under the thick

Tree canopy

And hear

The sweet chirps

Of Mister Robin

And smell

The grass

And feel

The breeze

And the warmth

Of the sun

While you watch it set

You can lie there until

The locusts sing

And Luna peeks out from behind the black curtain

Of the sky
