Palidrome Poetry

Palindrome Poetry
Also Known as Mirrored Poetry

A palindrome, by definition, is a word, phrase, verse, sentence, or even poem that reads the same forward or backward. It stems from the Greek word palindromos: palin, meaning again, and dromos, meaning a running. Combining the two together, the Greek meaning gives us, running back again...

Example Poem

Time to Caucus

Grumble and hollar and growl and mumble.
Mad and agitated was I glad?
Tumble and hoot now so bumble. 
Bad events population sad, 
bet placed folks upset yet 
long faces folks wrong. 
Yet good things get. 
Throng in song. 
One done 
Done one 
song in throng; 
get things good yet. 
Wrong folks faces long 
Yet upset folks placed bet. 
Sad population events bad 
Bumble so now hoot and tumble 
Glad I was agitated and mad!
Mumble and growl and hollar and grumble.
