By now America’s great again. At least by measure of the 2016 Nobel Prize in Literature awarded to Bob Dylan. It’s timely too. Seemed to have salved the wound that is the current presidential campaign. A counter revolutionary poet no less.
So write a poem that wants to be a song. Try to be as poetic as the lyrics that Dylan wrote. Like this:
The wind howls like a hammer
The night blows cold and rainy
My love she’s like some raven
At my window with a broken wing.
–Bob Dylan, “Love Minus Zero/No Limit”
