"Do something worth remembering."

"An apple a day keeps the screams away"

My mother would tell me at night

She'd whisper to me the words of the wise

On moonlit foggy nights

There we sat in the tower atop the cliffs that were so high

As the tendrils licked the stony side of the castle of she and I

And to this day I remember those nights so clearly in my mind

Mostly because the tales she'd tell were anything but kind

Heed her warning she'd scream to me and dare not forget them I try

So I shall remember the tales till my last breath: the day I die

This was an exercise I had to do in class. It had to include a proverb that we changed in some way. And then eight specific words.

Very visual. I loved that you described the scene. I could picture it very easily. The part where you used the word "kind," that seemed a little awkward. It seemed you were looking more for the rhyme then an actual adjetive that would have made it a little bit more clear. Overall, it was very enjoyable.
