Here's a game: Spell things out, like "Hi," while annotating the letter and using famous poetry. Start with the first letter and see which line has it, write it down. Your next line will contain the next letter/line etc. NO backtracking! I find it makes less sense when you go backwards. Also, avoid using words that contain letters like, "X" or "Z." Also, short poems typically don't work, as they are too short to find anything. Try things like Sir Gawain and the Green Knight or the Iliad See if it makes sense and/or sounds awesome! I will use something from Lucretius's On the Nature of Things for my example

How eld withdraws each object at the end,
Entangled and enmassed, whereby at once
Lest humankind should perish.  When they feign
Like drops of rain, through the unbottomed void;
Or through thin air, must quicken their descent.


Doesn't that sound purely awesome? Anyways, I said, "Hello."  Feel free to put your own creative ones in the comment box:)
