Limerick Style Poems
A Limerick poem is a humorous poem of fives lines with a rhyme scheme of AABBA.

There was an old man of Peru
Who dreamed he was eating his shoe.
He woke in the night
In a terrible fright,
And found it was perfectly true.
by Kaitlyn Guenther

There once was a wonderful star
Who thought she would go very far
Until she fell down
And looked like a clown
She knew she would never go far.

Now its your turn!

Concrete Poems

Clouds above give rain
Fruit will come soon
Nature is at work
Poetry without rules of form, rhyme, rhythm, or meter.

Angry Birds
There they are fat and mean
Flying birds on the screen
Aiming far to catch a pig
Oh how uneducational this game is.
I would rather get hooked
On a really good book.
