Transcript of Free Verse Poem

What is Free Verse?
Def- Poetry without a regular rhyme scheme or meter. It's mostly used in music to express a certain feeling or emotion.

Meter is a pattern of stressed syllables and unstressed syllables.
Ex: [
] is stressed because you pronounce it louder,higher pitch, with a longer duration.
] is the unstressed because you pronounce it faster and at a lower pitch.

Poetry Project: Free Verse
What is a rhyme scheme?
The ordered pattern of rhymes between lines of a poem
Most poets use rhyme schemes to give poems a fluid effect.

Ex: I don't like them in a

I don't like them with a

I don't like them near my

So please stay away or I have

to build a

Another year gone (a free verse poem.)
Is it just me or does time seem
To move faster the older you get?
It almost feels like the world is
Moving too quickly and I must
Move with it or be left behind,
For the world waits for no man
I can remember back to when
I was much younger than I am now it
Doesn’t seem that long ago, does it?
Perhaps it does, but I’m not certain
I can remember things, things that
Seem like they happened yesterday
But they don’t seem real somehow
The person in those memories is not me
Well, at least not the me that I am now
I have changed, the endless march
Of time has made sure of that but
I am not sad and I am not bitter
I have become a husband and a father,
And because of those precious gifts
I long to know what other beautiful things
I may become with the turning of the world;
But even the wonderful blessings which
May come in the years ahead make the
Speeding of time no less strange or frightening.
J.A McManus

or between internal phrases across multiple lines

Why is free verse
so special from others?
some poems seem to always limit an author's words and seem to rush them to get the point of the poem, but in free verse, you can elaborate ideas and to fully express what you feel on that said idea
Wings to Freedom
We are only birds
Caged behind bars called slavery
To sing only when told
To walk only when told
We cannot fly without the wings called freedom
All we can do is sing for our heart's content
And pray for a miracle
For that day for the door to open
We will pick up our forgotten wings
And soar back
Back to our lives
Back to our future
Back to our freedom
But for now, we will stay as caged birds
The Idea of
Wings to Freedom
the poem tries to elaborate the idea
of slavery by relating to a bird being trapped in a cage
