We were assigned two lists of words, the Germanic/Anglo word and the Greco-Latin word. I had to write a poem using the germanic/anglo words assigned, then re-write the same poem with the greco-latin words, the final portion was to write the poem a third time using both lists of words.

Germanic/Anglo

House

Woods

Dark

Mad

Eat

Speak

Sorrow

 

Greco-Latin:

Domicile

Forest

Obscure

Insane

Consume

Discourse

Anguish

 

Germanic/Anglo:
moonlight dapples the ground
fairies dance across the dark landscape
in the woods and across the plains
celebrating as they feast on fear and sorrow
whispers of the mad seducing the unsuspecting
through the open windows
as the family inside the house sits down to eat
in silence, afraid to speak
as moonlight dapples the ground


Greco-Latin:
moonlight dapples the ground
fairies dance in obscurity across the landscape
in the forest and across the plains
celebrating as they feast on fear and anguish
whispers of the insane seduce the unsuspecting mortals
consuming their minds as they sit
in their domicile
in silence, afraid of discourse
as moonlight dapples the ground


Combined Poem:
moonlight dapples the dark ground
fairies dance across the landscape
obscured from the eyes of the unsuspecting
they dance across the woods, cackling madly in the forest
eating the anguish they create
consuming the sorrow like candied treats
speak not! it calls them to your house
for not even your domicile
is safe for discourse
because insanity lingers
as moonlight dapples the ground
