Transcript of Poetry anthology

Poetry Anthology Haiku Delicate membrane,
Brightly shining cream-white egg,
Brings forth life anew. Limerick If you were to stand on a ridge,
or the top of a rather high bridge,
then I'm sorry to say,
that no matter which way,
You'd fall and be squashed like a midge Curse poems Sophia, I place upon you this curse,
From this day forth,
Your nose must face north,
and your feet will get flabby,
And bitten by Yabbies Excuses Poem I can't write a poem.
Forget it.
You must be kidding.
See, I swallowed a hen,
Along with a pen,
And my sister had a nervous breakdown.
My house caught on fire,
Plus my Mum got Swine Flu,
And Measles and Conjunctivitus too.
I went on a walk
And then choked on a carrot-
You actually like this?
I'll write some more. . . Raps His name's Dirty Dave
And he doesn't behave.
He runs the strip club
Which is also a pub.
He has a dog
Whose name is Bob.
he doesn't have a brain
So we all complain,
When he starts blabbering,
And waddling and flabbering. Clerihew A very silly person Elyse is,
Her brain has been torn into pieces.
And I believe that to go out with Isacc,
Is as good as giving your head a big smack. Rules of a Limerick A limerick has 1 stanza and 5 lines.
Lines 1,2, and 5 rhyme, lines 3 and 4 rhyme.
It is generally about something funny. Rules of a Clerihew A Clerihew is a silly poem, which has 4 lines, the 1st and 2nd ones rhyme, the 3rd and 4th ones rhyme. The 1st line ends in the person's name, so the 2nd line must rhyme with that name. Rules of a Haiku A haiku is a traditional Japanese poem which has a strong natural and spiritual meaning to it. It has 3 lines, with a syllable structure of 5-7-5. Rules of Excuses Poem An excuses poem must start with:
I can't write a poem.
Forget it.
You must be kidding.
It has a virtually unlimited number of lines, and they do not have to rhyme. Curse Poems A curse poem has 5 lines.
The 2nd and 3rd rhyme, the 4th and 5th rhyme, the 1st doesn't rhyme.
The first line must contain information about the person you are cursing and the curse you are putting on them. Raps A rap ,while generally sounding cool, and also often unappealing, has a deep meaning and they should have notice taken of them.
A rap is easy to write, the rhyming structure and syllable structure can be moulded like putty, so you could have a line with 20 syllables, followed by 3 lines with 6 syllables each.
There are mainly, in the rhyming structure, rhyming couplets and triplets.
