This week, our SIMPLY SNICKERS poetry prompt includes these key words:

Use all of these words, or as many as you can, in your own original poem this week.

This week, we celebrate the birthday of Flemish painter Sir Anthony Van Dyke, who was born on March 22, 1599.

To honor this artist, SIMPLY SNICKERS offers samples of this artist’s work to accompany this week’s prompt.
