When the first rain hits in mid-April,
Sitting down looking at the clock,
The CV2 2-Day Poem Contest, is an annual event put on by the Winnipeg-based journal, Contemporary Verse 2. A list of 10 words, often made up of archaic ones, is released on the specified Friday in April, precisely at 12am-midnight, from which point you have 48 hours to create a poem containing each word, in the form given by the contest organizers.
I made a little friend today,
As my luck would have it,
Yesterday evening three swift knocks sounded at the door of my apartment.
Fairytales told me that clouds are like pillows.
