10 WORD MENKE

Write a Menke Sonnet. Whats that? Here is an explanation:

A Menke Sonnet; also known as a Menke Triangle is an unrhymed

Poem that goes from 2-15 syllables or 15 to 2 syllables and can be a Double

Menke Triangle: from 2-15 and 15 to 2 syllables.



Sweet, Menke Katz was a mentor of mine. He passed away in 1991.

His work was published by Smith. He was the only Yiddish poet to also

become widely published in English. Plus, he was the kindest soul anyone

could ever meet. To learn more about Menke, or to support his work posthumously by ordering his books, visit: http://www.dovidkatz.net/menke/menke_americana.htm

Write a Menke Sonnet/Triangle using all of the following 10 words:

pretending
morning
sensible
walking
pretence
swallow
lost

bad
