Blackout Poetry - Hurry

I joined another swap at swap-bot that involved writing blackout poetry. The theme for this poem is ENERGY. And since it is National Poetry Month, I decided to use it for today's post.

I based my blackout poem on L. Frank Baum's book The Wizard of OZ, more specifically page 88.



My poem is titled "Hurry."



This is how I imagine the poem would look if I'd written it out.


Hurry
By Candace Shultz

"Hurry," he said.

She forgot 

where

she was

and fell fast asleep.

He was troubled.
He bounded forward
as fast as he could
and picked up the dog,
then made for the sand.
