This post is part of a series of weekly found poetry prompts. If you have an idea for a found poetry source, email Senior Poetry Editor Beth Ayer.
Write an erasure poem from the short short illustrated story “The Old, Rough Stone and the Gnarled Tree” (it’s about an old rough stone and an old gnarled tree) from Friendly Fairies by Johnny Gruelle. Among many other things, Gruelle was the creator of Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy. Friendly Fairies is another sweet gem from Project Gutenberg.
