Poetry Limericks There once was a fat old cat
Who loved his old blue mat
But then one night
He woke with a fright
And found a bat on his mat Clerihew Nelson, Noah
Was bit by a boa
He might have died
But I can't tell a lie Couplet I didn't want to do spelling
So I started yelling Cinquain Monkey's
Chunky, ugly
Playing, running, jumping
Playing around eating berries
Playful Diamante Dogs
Nice, pretty
Caring, loving, Giving
Always people's best friend
Running, barking, eating
Cute, fluffy
Animal Tanka Haiku It starts as a seed
When you plant it in the ground
Then watch it grow up Acrostic Way cold up north
In chilly Minnesota
Never stops snowing
Tall snow forts for me to build
Every snowfall
Rivers freeze up Tanka They dance in the air
In red, yellow, orange and more
They just keep coming
They fall with grace and beauty
And wait for next year to come Haiku The flower starts small
Growing stronger as time goes
Til it's time to go Acrostic Lovely breeze
Around the shore
Keeping me cool
Everywhere I go Limericks There once was a dog named Molly
Who was always so jolly
But then one day
She fell in the hay
And then thought her name was Holly Clerihew Mauer, Joe
Went to the show
But lost his way
And fell in a bay Couplet I took a spaceship to mars
Maybe I should have taken the car Cinquain Diamante Monkey
Cool, awesome
Jumping, running, walking
Likes to eat bananas
Eating, drinking, sleeping
Soft, cute

All around
Look out people

What the dictionary says: Noun- literary work in which the expression of FEELINGS and ideas is given intensity by the use of distinctive style and rhythm What Poets say: "Poetry is when emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words," stated by Robert Frost.

"Poetry at its best uses words to say more than words can say," as stated by Marvin Bell. What Mrs. Masoodi says: Poetry is the most compact form of literature.

Poets express a range of emotions.
Much is said in few words.

Poets use a variety of forms, sound devices, imagery, and figurative language! Take a Look... Hold fast to dreams
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird
That connot fly.
Hold fast to dreams
For when dreams go
Life is a barren field

Second Stanza

Third Stanza total lines - 11 Try it .... Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village thought.
He will not see me stopping here
to watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound's the sweep
of easy wind and downy flake. How many lines?
