As part of the final project in a creative writing class at CSUSM, I wrote a historical fiction poem about Anne Boleyn, the second wife of Henry VIII of England. I had never written a poem in this genre before, but it was a risk that I was willing to take simply to see what the end result would be. The poem is not completely historically accurate, but I decided to take some creative liberties with it in order to make the storyline flow a little better than it would otherwise.
