CAPPING VERSES.

Source: Games for Everybody
Category: GAMES FOR ADULTS





To while away the time before dinner, or while sitting in the
twilight, this is a simple amusement for those who love poetry.

One begins by giving a line or verse of poetry. The next one
continues, but his verse must commence with the last letter of the
previous verse, and so on, each one capping the other's verse.

Suppose No.1 quotes:

"Full many a flower is born to blush unseen
And waste its sweetness on the desert air."

No. 2 continues quoting:

"Romeo! wherefore art thou Romeo?"

No. 3:

"O speak again, bright angel."

No. 4:

"Like summer tempest came her tears,
'Sweet, my child, I live for thee.'"

and so on until the guests tire of it.




Next: RABBIT.

Previous: SCISSORS CROSSED OR UNCROSSED.
