Poems and Words

Today’s NaPoWriMo prompt was to write what is called a “double elevenie.” An elevenie is a poem of 5 lines, 11 words total. The lines contain, in order, a noun, two words describing what the noun does, 3 words describing where the noun is, 4 words of further explanation, and finally one word that describes the feeling or conclusion. A double elevenie, as the name suggests, has 2 stanzas.
