When West winds wail,
Wild willows weep.
When wanderers wait,
Within walls –
Which withstand withering winds.
Wayfarers waylaid when –
Woodlands’ winding ways were wrecked.
Inspired by Storms Ciara and Dennis, and by Saturday Mix: Tautogram Poems
A “tautogram is best explained by its Greek root words of ‘tauto’ meaning ‘the same’ and ‘gramma’ meaning ‘letter.’ Basically, all words in the poem begin with the same letter.”
