Diana Gabaldon just released the next set of chapter titles (68-81) for her next novel, “My Own Heart’s Blood.” They looked like they were asking to be a poem, so now they are. I have taken the liberty of re-ordering them for my own purposes. She assures readers there are no spoilers, but I make no such promises. (ha!) I usually use phrases exactly as found, but in this case, the bold words are the titles, and anything not bolded is added for sense or transition (or my own entertainment).
The Cider Orchard
A Single Louse
In the Wrong Place at the Wrong Time
Peculiar Behavior of a Tent, full of
Morasses and Imbroglios,
a Folie à Trois,
The Dangers of Surrendering to passion are,
The Sort of Thing That Will Make a Man Sweat and Tremble,
(and a louse, too) when it must
Go Out in Darkness.
The Price of Burnt Sienna:
is a Sparrow-Fart
Among the Tombstones
wrong place, wrong time, indeed.
Shawn, you are so creative!
Thanks Sue. I come from wildly creative genes. 😉
a fun ‘found’ poem…
So creativel Has Diana seen it?
Mmm. I haven’t noticed a comment from her, though links were posted on her Facebook and tagging her on Twitter. She knows my blog, though, and does stop in from time to time. 🙂
