Beth A. Fleisher

Hour 8


Prompt 8: Translate one of the emoji poems and write a poem by translating one of them back into verse. You can deviate from translating at any point, if the poem goes a different direction. Or you can write a poem about your experience with emojis instead.



Platypus and Eagle


Tyger, Tyger burning bright,

In the forests of the night:

What immortal hand or eye,

Dare frame thy fearful


            ~ William Blake

Only Creator has both an immortal hand

and an immortal eye,

able to create beautiful symmetry

in two such disparate creatures

as Platypus

and Eagle.
