Cento is Latin for “patchwork”. It’s a collage of other poet’s works. The poem borrows lines from other poets without meter or rhyme. I loved putting this poem together because I got a glimpse at so many poets’ poems. This poem entails lines from Robert Frost, William Shakespeare, Maya Angelou, Walt Whitman, William Blake, John Keats, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Dorothy Parker, Robert Browning, Percy Bysshe Shelley, Alfred Lord Tennyson and Edgar Allan Poe. Each author’s line is linked to the poem.
