The Lucida Poetry Board

Persian Roots Version: "Harp of Darius"
This version of the Poetry Board is loaded with words that have come into English from the Persian language. You can click on the word tiles and drag them to create phrases, sentences, poetry, prose, or beautiful nonsense. If you would like to add words of your own, you can either shift-click on an existing tile and type in a new word, or shift-click on a blank area of the board and create a new tile. Other Poetry Board versions are linked below - try them all!

Other Poetry Board versions: Shakespeare, Spam, Anglo-Saxon, GRE Prep, Odysseas Elytis, and for the kids - the Children's Poetry Board.
