Some of you may have heard of the poem by William Carlos Williams entitled The Red Wheelbarrow. It goes:

So much depends

A red wheel

glazed with

beside the white

After reading and discussing this poem (notice how the words of each stanza appear in the shape of a wheelbarrow), we wrote our own poem in the same style. Here's mine:

So much depends upon
a tattered sheet of music

yellowed and torn
covered in penciled squiggles

sitting on the stand.
