Today’s prompt from the Found Poetry Review’s Oulipost Project: Epithalamium!
“An Oulipian epithalamium, or marriage song, is one composed exclusively with the letters of the names of bride and groom (bride and bride, groom and groom, etc). Visit the engagement or wedding announcements section of your newspaper and select a couple. Write a poem using only words that can be made with the letters in their name..”
I used the names Margie and Susan, from today’s New York Times’ Wedding/Celebrations section. And felt it was only fitting to make it a love poem.
sung me. Mug,
