Wondrous Words: Words I Didn't Expect to Find in a Poem, Or, You Can Put Anything, Literally Anything, Into Verse




In honor of National Poetry Month





Wondrous Words Wednesday is a weekly meme where you can share new words that you’ve encountered, or spotlight words you love.  Feel free to get creative! It was first created by Kathy over at Bermuda Onion and is now hosted at Elza Reads.

    1. I saw this was in Greek, and immediately deleted it...thinking it was spam. And then I went to Google Translate. So I will restore what was written. Apologies!

      Χαιρετισμούς από την Ελλάδα.
