YO!!!!! WELCOME TO THE FINAL DAY OF NAPOWRIMO 2016!!!
Again, thank you for joining us on this journey this month! What an awesome amount of feedback we have received this April. For those still interested in submitting to the Google Doc, you still have time. We will leave it open until 11:59pm on MAY 2ND. After this time, we will take a look at our submissions and may possibly post yours on our site as apart of the "Best Of The Rest" page that will launch in May. Don't forget to keep up with our website to keep up with this, more writing prompts and the many more updates we have coming this year.
Finally, here is the final Day 30 prompt:
Today, I challenge you to write a poem in the form of an Aubade. This is a poem that usually revolves around the dawn, awakening at morning, sunrise, or new days. This can sometimes revolve around lovers separating at dawn or include illicit content, however we will leave that open for your own choice and interpretation today.
Here is an example of an Aubade from John Donne's "The Sun Rising"
"Busy old fool, unruly sun,
Why dost thou thus,
Through windows, and through curtains call on us?
Must to thy motions lovers' seasons run?
Saucy pedantic wretch, go chide
Late school boys and sour prentices,
Go tell court huntsmen that the king will ride,
Call country ants to harvest offices,
Love, all alike, no season knows nor clime,
Nor hours, days, months, which are the rags of time."
Of course, for this last day you may introduce your own rhyme scheme or not rhyme at all. We leave that to you.
