windmills and flat landscapes
coastal curves and seascapes
white sails flash on Broads
folded fields and sedgy meadows
fruit in orchards and in hedgerows
wriggling country roads
plopping frogs and gurgling shallows
trumpeting geese and warbling swallows
rumbling tourist boats
Norfolk twang and magpie’s cry
commingle as the world slips by
diminuendo of minor notes

On day 3 of The Poetry School’s NaPoWriMo prompts, we are looking at the list poem.
We have been asked to read example list poems (‘The Ice-Cream Man’ by Michael Longley and ‘Short Shorted / Odogbolu 1995’ by Inua Ellams) and then to start writing down lists of things, which we should then turn into a poem.
