Welcome to Wandering Words...

    Wandering Words is your chance to “edit” any of these Kuypers poems. Below is a list of poems - when you select any poem, a new window will appear with the poem in the left panel. Every word (including any punctuation in the poem) will be listed in a separated “box.” You can then take any of the words from the original poem and literally move them to the right panel, to generate your version of the poem.
    Wandering Words is set up so that you can move the words, and they will automatically lock into a line in the right panel (so the words will line up evenly). Then you’ll see at the bottom of the panels a chance to change the title of the poem and a button to see your poem laid out as text.
get Flash     We now have a Flash® version of Wandering Words available for only until 2020, so if you don’t have the latest version of Flash® Player, you should get it (so that YOU can take your hand at Wandering Words)!
