Who wouldn't want a POPPET? Isn't she (he? it?) adorable???? Handcrafted and with a value of $20 (not including S&H), this little Red Poppet can be yours just for what you do best -- telling a story. (Learn more about Lisa Snelling's Poppets.)
All you have to do is cast our little poppet as a literary character and tell their story in a 3- or 4-line poem. No, it doesn't have to rhyme. Yes, it can be a haiku. Yes, you can change the character up and surprise us. In fact, we encourage you to! Poppets aren't just sweet. They're also creepy and, most of all, surprising.
We'll use the most obvious character as our example: Little Red Riding Poppet. And no, you can't use her, too. You CAN use the same character someone else in the comments does. But remember: The judges are looking for originality as well as all the other poetical things, and the first use will earn more points for being the more original.
Little Red Riding PoppetCaptured by design, the hooded child is biding by;
Sweet upturned face quite fools the eye.
The wolf can't stop her brash escape
Once she frees the ninja powers hiding 'neath her red, red cape.
See how easy this is?
