Poetry Printable: A Student's Sestina

One day my stepdaughter came home from college with a creative writing assignment--write a sestina.  A sestina is a poem with six stanzas and a short three line envoy.  Each line is in iambic pentameter and ends with one of six words.

I took the challenge.  I found six random words out of a newspaper article and wrote my poem about a struggling student who would rather be at the skateboard park.
