“Why Not?”

Laurie Kolp created “Why Not?” from How to Keep Bees by Anna Botsford Comstock (1905).  Please click here to read.

About the poem and the process of composing it, Laurie writes:

As always, the words seemed to come together. I started my process by creating word banks based on rhyme, assonance, consonance, etc. I then grouped specific words together and played around with them until they created this poem.
