2 Poetry 6 th Grade Mrs. Tatum

3 Haiku Haiku poetry is a very short, centuries-old form of Japanese poetry that is an intriguing change of pace from the kind of rhythmic, rhyming poetry you're used to reading. Haiku is like a photo that captures the essence of what's happening, often connecting two seemingly unrelated things.

4 How to Write a Haiku Traditional Japanese haiku had a total of seventeen syllables divided into three clumps (or lines): five syllables seven syllables five syllables

5 What Do I Write About? A haiku has 17 syllables divided among three lines. Express a single mood or emotion in your haiku. The classic haiku theme is nature, so try using nature-based imagery as well as your own themes when you write a haiku.

6 Example of a Haiku Morning Sun Dances? When the gentle rain greets dawn? With a lovely sigh? On a withered bough A crow along is perching Autumn evening now.

7 Acrostic Acrostic: a poem in which special letters spell another word or make a sentence.

8 Acrostic Information Most often, the special letters come at the beginning of each line. But they may be placed elsewhere, too. Alphabet poems are also a special type of acrostic, called abecdearian acrostics.

9 Example Panthers growl, Orioles sing, Eagles soar, Monkeys swing. See?

10 Concrete Poems Concrete poetry—sometimes also called ‘shape poetry’—is poetry whose visual appearance matches the topic of the poem. The words form shapes which illustrate the poem’s subject as a picture, as well as through their literal meaning.

11 Concrete Poetry Example

12 Limerick A limerick is a silly poem with five lines. They are often funny or nonsensical. Limericks were made famous by Edward Lear, a famous author who wrote the "Book of Nonsense" in the 1800's.

13 Limerick Rhyme Scheme The rhyme scheme of a limerick is known as “AABBA.” This is because the last words in lines 1, 2, and 5 rhyme. Those are the “A’s” in the rhyme scheme. The “B’s” are the last words of lines 3 and 4.rhyme scheme

14 The Rules of Limericks They are five lines long. Lines 1, 2, and 5 rhyme with one another. Lines 3 and 4 rhyme with each other. They have a distinctive rhythm (which I’ll explain shortly) They are usually funny.

15 Limerick Example There was a young fellow named Hall Who fell in the spring in the fall. ‘Twould have been a sad thing Had he died in the spring, But he didn’t—he died in the fall.

16 Cinquain Poetry What’s a Cinquain poem? It is a form of poetry, written like a recipe. A Cinquain is a five-line poem. The words you choose and the form they take on paper are an important part of the writing. Some people say they appear like diamonds on paper.

17 Creating a Cinquain Line 1:One word for the subject (noun) Line 2:Two words describing subject Line 3:Three words showing action Line 4:Four or five words expressing feeling or thought Line 5:One word that means the same thing as the first word in line 1 (describing or renaming subject)

18 Cinquain Example Lion Golden, strong Staring, creeping, pouncing A hunter on the prowl Predator

Imagery in Poetry Quick Check The Loon by Lew Sarett A lonely lake, a lonely shore, A lone pine leaning on the moon; All night the water-beating wings Of a solitary loon.

29 Free verse FREE VERSE is a kind of poetry that has no real rhythm or pattern, so you can put words together in all sorts of ways. You can be VERY imaginative!

30 What is Free verse poetry? Anything and everything can be the topic of a free verse lyrical poem. The poem can tell a story, describe a person, animal, feeling or object. They can serious, sad, funny or educational. What ever subject that appeals to the poet can end up in free verse.

31 How to write Free verse Free verse does not have a set pattern of rhyme or rhythm. There are no rules about line length in free verse. You try to keep the words that belong together on the same line, but, sometimes the poet will break these words if he/she wants to create a visual shape to support the poem's message, or feeling that the poet wishes the reader to experience.

32 Example of Free Verse Fog by Carl Sandburg The fog comes on little cat feet. It sits looking over harbor and city on silent haunches and then moves on.
