Karina Klesko Exercise 2

Daylily - Following the Sun

 

Awakening at sunrise
and withering at sunset.

Entreat me not to leave you,
or to return from following after you.

For where you go I will go
and where you stay I will stay.
Your light will be my light
and your God will be my God.

Entreat me not to leave you,
or to return from following after you.

Awakening at sunrise
and withering at sunset.

And where you die, I will die
and there I will be buried.
May the Lord do with me and more,
if anything but death parts you from me.

Entreat me not to leave you,
or to return from following after you.

Awakening at sunrise
and withering at sunset.

The day lily is aptly named due to the the fact that their flowers open at sunrise and wither at sunset. Day lilies are popular worldwide, with over 60,000 cultivars. Some species of the day lily are edible and are eaten in dishes in China including soup and stir-fry dishes. Some authorities claim that day lilies have medicinal properties.

After both have said individual vows, they may wish to say something in unison such as:

Entreat me not to leave you, or to return from following after you, For where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people, and your God will be my God. And where you die, I will die and there I will be buried. May the Lord do with me and more if anything but death parts you from me.

Definition Material:

From Poets.org:

Found poems take existing texts and refashion them, reorder them, and present them as poems. The literary equivalent of a collage, found poetry is often made from newspaper articles, street signs, graffiti, speeches, letters, or even other poems.

and from Wikipedia:

Found poetry is a type of poetry created by taking words, phrases, and sometimes whole passages from other sources and re-framing them as poetry by making changes in spacing and/or lines (and consequently meaning), or by altering the text by additions and/or deletions. The resulting poem can be defined as either treated: changed in a profound and systematic manner; or untreated (verbatim): virtually unchanged from the order, syntax and meaning of the original.
