Hey y’all, remember when I tried out a lil’ game I made called “song… or poem???” a few… actually, months ago here? Well, whether you do or don’t, we’re gonna play the guessin’ game again!
It’s simple, really- I just write out two quoted lines of either a (well-known, usually) song or poem, and then you get to guess which it is! Keep score of how many you get right, and then you can post it as a comment! Not that this is a competition or anything, but it’s fun to see who “wins”.
Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly.
Got a guess?
Well, this one is… a…
Poem! An easy one, maybe- it’s from Dream by Langston Hughes.
Okay, here goes two.
Your soul, your soul?
I’ll carry it off like a pretty rich girl
Hm… this one’s gotta be…
Another poem. (Stopped Dead by Sylvia Plath.)
I’ve loved and I’ve lost
But that’s not what I see
Easy one… right?
This one’s a song- thank u, next by my girl Ariana Grande.
I told my love, I told my love,
I told her all my heart
It’s… a poem- Love’s Secret by William Blake.
I know how much you miss me
I can feel your love for me in your heart.
Oh, another lovey son… I mean po… I mean… song! It’s Shania Twain- Forever and Always.
Next up is…
A poor life this is, full of care,
That we have no time to stand and stare
That’s got to be a poem, right? Because it is; Leisure Poem by another Billy boy… I mean William Henry Davies.
Funny it seems, but by keeping it’s dreams,
it learned to breathe fresh air
Yes, there’s a grammar error in this one… but that doesn’t change what makes this poem great. Oops… did I say poem?
Yep, that was The Rose That Grew From Concrete by Tupac Shakur- someone who also happened to be a certain famous rapper once as well!
Let’s do… two more.
No more to laugh, no more to sing,
I sit alone with sorrow.
Hm… could it be… song?
Nope! It’s yet another poem- A Daughter of Eve by Christina Georgina Rossetti.
Last one, people!
Write my letter
Feel much better
And use my fancy patter on the telephone.
Y’all got a bonus line on that one! So… what is it? Song… or poem???
Song for that one! Good Old Fashioned Lover Boy by Queen!
Well, I hope you guys enjoyed playing this little fun game with me. I try to make it difficult to where I wouldn’t be able to guess right if I hadn’t have made the game, but it’s not hard to trick me so it probably wasn’t too bad for everyone else.
Let me know your scores! Oh, and… I may (hopefully) have a surprise in store for everyone here on my blog next week!
Until then, homedogs!
