Brothers Are the Same
by Beryl Markham
They are tall men,
Cleanly built
And as straight as the shafts of the spears
they carry,
And no one knows
Their tribal history,
But there is some of Egypt in their eyes
And the look of ancient Greece about their
bodies.
What makes "Brothers..." a poem?
Figurative Language
Feelings, thoughts, or dreams
Imaginative Language
Verse?
Meter?
Repetition?
Rhyme?
Brothers Are the Same
by Beryl Markham
So... if it looks like poetry...sounds like poetry...
They are tall men, cleanly built and straight as the shafts
of the spears they carry, and no one knows their tribal
history, but there is some of Egypt in their eyes and the
look of ancient Greece about their bodies.
Let's look at another poem...
"The Rose that Grew from Concrete"
by Lesane Parish Crooks
Did you hear about the rose that grew
from a crack in the concrete?
Proving nature’s law is wrong it
learned to walk without having feet.
Funny it seems, but by keeping its dreams,
it learned to breathe fresh air.
Long live the rose that grew from concrete
when no one else ever cared.
Lesane Parish Crooks
Born 1971
Died 1996 by gun shot
Tupac Amaru Shakur

Inca tribal name:Tupac Amaru means “shining serpent”

Shakur means “thankful to God”
...maybe THIS is poetry...
Hey
I remember the way
We would both say
We be together
Forever and a day

Well I guess that day
Came sooner than late
Because now
We're apart and away

And it feels so stray
N.G.E. wouldn't you say
I use to
Call u bay
And u use to obey
And I just wish we could



;)
Let's look at...
some poetry...
...vocabulary!
Define the following terms into your notes:

Alliteration

Assonance

Meter: a device used to measure poetry. The unit used is the metric "foot". The number of feet determines the metre of the poem. Four feet per line is called tetrametre, five feet pentametre, six feet sextametre etc. A "foot" is determined by a series of stressed and unstressed syllables.
Rhyme Scheme
Quatrain
Stanza
Monometer
Soliloquy
Stressed/unstressed syllables: how syllables are pronounced or “stressed”
End Rhyme
Internal Rhyme

Iambic pentameter: unstressed/stressed repeated five times within a line ˘ ‘ / ˘ ‘ / ˘ ‘ / ˘ ‘ / ˘ ‘

Grew From Concrete
I got my business together
Wish I could get together
But timing is an error
And I
Tell a lie
To you like ever
If I was even ever
Given another chance to

Like I died
And gone to heaven
Climbed inside a treasure
Died inside of pleasure like
Wow
Your smile is but of essence
Your child is so precious
I wish
It was paternally mine
But karma is a message
But I'mma try to test it
And scream for a blessing
So loud
And I hope that you would catch it
And one day you would come fallin
Out of the most highest cloud

Then ill be there to catch you
Yes, Ill be there to let you
Do da things
We didn't do before
Now

Next time we have to stretch it
Do it never forget it
I never forgot
I wish dat we could
