Monday Poetry Prompt: Stout


This week let’s write a stout poem. It could be a brave and bold poem, a strong and solid poem or even a beer poem. It could also take a stout shape, if you’re up for a challenge.

Post your poem in the comments below.

  2. Happy Stout

    Family and friends come visit
    Little teapot short and stout
    Warm and fragrant pour it out
    Freshly baked choc chip cookies
    everybody scoffs them down
    Mama wipes off sweat with hand covered in flour
    Papa stands up facing Mama holding a mirror
    Chuckles from her round belly rumbling loud
    Our little home filled with happy smiles

  3. I’m supposin’ Grandpa’s beer was stout
    the way he’d carry on ‘n’ shout
    moonshine was his heritage
    so I’m sure he learned to find that edge
    never tasted his home brew
    momma said it was fine, too
    wonder how I got the taste
    when all this blood runs through my veins
