Found poem: Orwell in clover


Lumbering clover,
stretching green grass
and bursting hedges,
remain faithful to
the song of rebellion.

I randomly picked two adjacent pages from George Orwell’s Animal farm and painted out words in order to transform the remaining words into an original poem. The result was this tanka. I got the idea from this artist. Photo credit: Guy Hollister at
