A meme for a Saturday morning: I've just discovered Wordle, a site that lets you generate nice-looking multicolored "word clouds" out of any text you put into it. One of the first things I tried doing with it was running the text of various poems through it. And then I thought, "I wonder how identifiable a poem is when you turn it into a word cloud?" It occurred to me that this could have the makings of a guessing game of sorts.
So here are a few word-clouds, all using fairly well-known poems (I found all of them at poets.org):
Guess away at the original poems, if you're so inclined, and post your guesses in the comments — and pass the meme on, if you like. I'll post the answers after a few days.
