Poetry Starters

either as a title, first line or idea

  1. I had not thought that death . . .

  2. Gradually, from a behind a curtain of dream . . .

  3. Under the grey fog of a winter dawn . . .

  4. From the gum trees, loved-crazed cicadas . . .

  5. Otherwise we might have had a season . . .

  6. All day our little street has lain . . .

  7. The convict arrow of gull’s feet . . .

  8. He knew the boat, knew it better than he did himself . . .

  9. She did not keep our time, and as the empty hour reached its sum . . .

  10. The road through the noon-time forest began . . .

  11. High and lifted up . . .

  12. Baked black and thin . . .

  13. Beyond her best and wildest fantasies . . .

  14. Remaking the darkness . . .

  15. This long train reinvents . . .

  16. Emergency sirens in West Terrace . . .

  17. Are you ever coming back . . .

  18. Soft pads upon the sky . . .

  19. Between the two . . .

  20. They are not here . . .
