Lay a White Quilt Over Them

Bitter Antarctic star blanket above.
Five men stoic at the end of the earth.
Time, food, water, sanity all gone.
Screaming blizzard snow blanket.
Frozen corpses yellow waxen taut.
Scott’s diary, blanket marketed,
has never been out of print.
Undying Glory blankets any error.

dVerse Blanket Challenge

Merril at Dverse https://dversepoets.com/2020/10/05/quadrille-113-blanket-us/ is hosting a blanket challenge to create a 44 word Quadrille Poem. Her prompt is to include the word ‘blanket’.

It is always fascinating to read what others have done with the same prompt. https://www.blenza.com/linkies/links.php?owner=dversepoets&postid=03Oct2020b&meme=12540
