I’ve posted lunes before (lune–a simple tercet form of poem).  The following set of lunes are creative responses to six dramatic plays enacting familiar short stories often taught in school.  We attended this performance yesterday at UL-Lafayette.  To the reader of trivial pursuits, see if you can identify the story that inspired each lune.

Students followed this set of instructions for the assignment.

1

A midnight dreary–
Dirty bird.
Nevermore, Lenore!

2

You think me mad? No!
But the heart
Tells its sordid tale.

3

Poor Ichabod Crane–
Lost his squeeze,
Scared plum poo-poo-less.

4

The monkey’s paw–
My mind took a break.
Couldn’t focus well.

5

Mathilde, t’es folle!
T’as gaspie’ tout.
Et pour quoi?  A rien!

6

A Twain tale so tall:
Make a bet,
Hyperbolic frog.
