Transcript of 4th grade poetry

Roots of Poetry Think about this: Haiku: Cinquain: Limericks: What kind of poems are these?

Green and speckled legs,
Hop on logs and lily pads
Splash in cool water.

There was an Old Man in a boat,
Who said, 'I'm afloat, I'm afloat!'
When they said, 'No! you ain't!'
He was ready to faint,
That unhappy Old Man in a boat.

Juicy, sweet
Dripping, slurping, smacking
So messy to eat
Yummy What is Poetry?

A collection of words that expresses an emotion or idea, sometimes with a specific rhythm. 4th Grade Poetry "Haiku" is a traditional form of Japanese poetry.
The first and last lines of a Haiku have 5 syllables and the middle line has 7 syllables.
The lines rarely rhyme.

Spring is in the air
Flowers are blooming sky high
Children are laughing Cinquains are just five lines long.
They have 2 syllables in the first line, 4 in the second, 6 in the third, 8 in the fourth line, and just 2 in the last line.
Cinquains do not need to rhyme.

My room
is such a mess.
Toys all over the place.
Mom says, “Clean up!” But I like it
like this. A limerick is a five-line poem with rhyme scheme AABBA.
They are usually lively and funny!
They tend to have a nice flowing pattern or rhythm.

There was a young fellow who thought
Very little, but thought it a lot.
Then at long last he knew
What he wanted to do,
But before he could start, he forgot. What kinds of poetry are there?
More! "A poem begins in delight and ends in wisdom."

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet. All writers and poets write about what they know.
