For this swap, you will create one of your own, with your own "poem" (like the above), and share it to your partner via post.

Follow these steps: 1. Find a book, magazine or newspaper. 2. Photocopy ONE page / Tear out ONE article of the newspaper/magazine 3. Use a black marker and shade, leaving your poem behind.

To make this a little more challenging, your poem needs to echo a theme. For February, the theme is LOVE.

Remember to sign off your name/swapbot username and send it out by February 5. If there are any reasons why you can't, please inform your partner.

  • International
  • Ratings 4.9 and above
  • Newbies are to pm me first with swapping background information

I will drop anyone that seems dodgy to me. I will angel, if necessary.

@hyperoma ..I sent you a private message. I had sent you one prior to you banning me as explained in the directions. Although I am a new member, I would have appreciated a heads up before you banned me since I had spent a considerable amount of time on this project this afternoon in anticipation of participating. ow I've got a nicely prepared and enveloped piece of poetry and no where to send it.

@hyperoma ..I can understand the reservation though and don't want you to think I completely am misunderstanding. Maybe I'll participate in the next round!
