PoeTryMe was created as a generic system for the generation of poetry that takes into account both semantics, in the form of triplets of relations between concepts, and textual structure, in the form of a grammar of templates extracted from existing poems. It was originally instantiated to generate poetry in Portuguese. The present paper describes an effort to create a different instantiation of PoeTryMe, this time focused on the production of poems in Spanish. The instantiation effort involved the creation of a set of triplets of relations to represent the semantics of Spanish terms, the extraction of a grammar of templates for Spanish from a corpus of Spanish poetry, the application of a different tool for Spanish syllabic division, the integration of the various modules, and several experiments with the resulting system.
