Green eggs and ham,
“But that is not the entire sentence.”
That is ‘OK’ its done on purpose, its called a:
Line break- the intentional end of a line of poetry
I will not eat them on a boat,
or on a goat.
In a car,
near or far.
(Yes, this is the word where lyrics in music got its name)
How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.I love thee to the depth and breadth and heightMy soul can reach, when feeling out of sightFor the ends of Being and ideal Grace . . .
by Elizabeth Barret Browning
A macho young swimmer named Dwyer,
Really liked playing with fire.
One night in the dark
He swam with a shark,
And his voice is now two octaves higher.
(Its entirely up to you!)
Old dark sleepy pool (5) a quick unexpected frog (7) goes plop! Watersplash. (5)
