ACTIVITY: King and Queen Homework/In-Class Rewrite

Words: 28

NOTES: This was originally homework about fixing up the lines, "The King died" and "The Queen Died" by adding in more detail. Since they were hurried one-line descriptions about imaginary characters, I didn't put anything up. However, in class our teacher returned the homework and had us turn these descriptions into a mini-poem. So, this is my revised poem-thingy.

The King Died

That noiseless night

A woman waited

By the bedside of

her husband.

Then the candle was

Snuffed out.

She kissed the king's

Lifeless lips

And closed his lids.
