Template Poems

Template poems are of the instant: flip ahead in a book, plonk down the template poem so at least some words show through the window and enjoy the poem: the chances of finding it again are quite remote. When I discovered the below picture was quite blurry I couldn't find the page again.
I've created a number of these template poems, each with different 'window' designs. At the moment I've just been using lined-paper.
