LIMITED TIME OFFER

THIS OFFER HAS ENDED

Valentine’s Day 2017 is just around the corner. This year, I’m offering a special promotion for my readers — commissioned sevenlings!

For $7.00 USD, I will write a personalized Sevenling Valentine’s poem for your loved one.

Poems will be delivered by email by February 13th, so you can give them to your loved one on Valentine’s Day.

What are Sevenlings?

A Sevenling is a short seven-line poem, consisting of two stanzas of 3 lines each, plus a final conclusion line. The first stanza contains three similar or contrasting elements, such as a list of places, objects, ideas, etc.

The second stanza also contains three elements. The final line provides a narrative summary or interesting juxtaposition. I’ve written several examples, which you can find here.

What I need from you

When you place your order for your personalized Sevenling poem, please use the available fields to include three (3) details about your loved one that you’d like me to include. They can be any three details. For example:

  • Three places you’ve visited together
  • Three physical details you love about them (the shape of their hands, the way their hair curls, etc.)
  • Three habits you find endearing — or frustrating!
  • Three goals you’ve worked on together
  • Or anything else!

You can also use the optional notes field to include anything else you’d like to mention.

What you get from me

You provide three elements to incorporate into the sevenling; I’ll provide the other three, so this piece will be a collaborative effort between you, the one who loves, and me, the poet. When you give it to your loved one, they and you can know that you had an integral part in crafting this piece of poetry.

Single? No worries!

If you’re alone this Valentine’s Day, let me make it a special day for you! Include three details about yourself, and I’ll take care of the rest.

Order now!

This is a limited time offer! I’ll only be taking orders through February 12, 2017, so get yours in today! Payment accepted through Paypal.
