Gold Blocks

Boy from Oxford took dog
To North of woody town
For gold blocks.

Down to ford pond
Boy follow dog to loch
Old myth of gold blocks.

Moon low, owl hoots
Ghostly fog on moor
Boy looks for gold blocks.

Long boy plods on
Dog spy stocky log
No gold blocks, boy sobs.

Prowl on boy took to stony brook
Stoop down to spy gold blocks
Took loot from brook for own.

Lowly howl of wolf
Follows boy, follows dog
Boy jogs for town,
Dog stops to growl
Boy knows to go to town
Slow down for loot of gold blocks.

Soon boy spots town
Slows down, worrys for dog
Dog stops wolf from knoll boldly
Dog strolls now to town.

Boy whoops for joy
Dog jogs to boy
Soon both go to room for
Both now own gold blocks.

April 29th prompt: Choose one vowel. Now write a poem using only words that have that vowel and no others. Most of these univocalic poems are 10 lines or fewer, but poet Evie Shockley produced one titled “legend” with 33 lines. Your univocalic poems may be as long or short as you like.
