Poetry What is Poetry? Written piece that evokes emotion Doesnt follow the rules Expresses feelings and moods Considered art Poetry ~ Eleanor Farjeon What is Poetry? Who Knows? Not a rose, but the scent of the rose; Not the sky, but the light in the sky; Not the fly, but the gleam of the fly;

Not the sea, but the sound of the sea; Not myself, but what makes me See, hear, and feel something that prose Cannot: and what it is who knows? A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness ... It finds the thought and the thought finds the words. ~ Robert Frost Sentences in poetry are called lines. Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered weak and weary -- Edgar Allen Poe To be or not to be: That is the question

William Shakespeare Paragraphs in poetry are called Stanzas The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both And be one traveler, long I stood And looked down one as far as I could To where it bent in the undergrowth; How many stanzas are in this poem? I started on my homework but my pen ran out of

ink. My hamster ate my homework. My computer's on the blink. I accidentally dropped it in the soup my mom was cooking. My brother flushed it down the toilet when I wasn't looking. --Kenn Nesbitt How many stanzas are in this poem?

Please don't read this poem. It's only meant for me. That's it. Just move along now. There's nothing here to see. Your friends will all forget you. You won't be even missed. Your family, too, will likely forget that you

exist. Besides, I'm sure you'd rather just go outside and play. So put the poem down now and slowly back away. And all because you read this instead of having fun. It's too late

now, amigo; the poem's nearly done. Hey, why are you still reading? That isn't very nice. There's only one solution. Here's what you'll have to do: Elements of Poetry

Figurative Language Sensory Images Rhyme Rhythm Mood Figurative Language Similes and Metaphors are often found in poems. Birds Chirping non-stop, like a machine in the trees, Building their nest like little worker bees. They sing their songs, like chatter-boxes. As regular as alarm clocks, Waking people up each day. They are silent at night,

Like snakes advancing on prey. Find the figurative language The Cafeteria The cafeteria is a jungle. Wild animals scrambling for food. Grunting like wild boars Stampeding to the line Devouring their prey

Snowboarding Snow is butter, smooth but rough. As I come down hills, I am a bullet. As I travel up, I'm a flowing stream. My board is my legs, as walking comes natural. Ready to go, I am Personification The Gastronomic Gym

Pasta twirling and spinning, peas do vertical jumps mashed potatoes swimming. meat doing bench press and pumps. Food has begun to exercise but its not in any gym. My brother said its happening right inside of him. Alliteration The Football Game Blitz and blocking, bump and-run Drive and drop kick, the other teams done End zone, end line, ebb and flow Snap, sack, scrambling, I love it so

Football is fun and fabulous too Lets go to the stadium, just me and you Find the Alliteration My Puppy Punched Me In the Eye My puppy punched me in the eye. My rabbit whacked my ear. My ferret gave a frightful cry and roundhouse kicked my rear. My lizard flipped me upside down. My kitten kicked my head. My hamster slammed me to the ground and left me nearly dead. So my advice? Avoid regrets; no matter what you do,

dont ever let your family pets take lessons in kung fu. Kenn Nesbitt Find the Hyperbole Hyperbole Hyperbole Cafe Welcome to our restaurant Where everything's gigantic. A hundred waiters hold one dish. Our kitchen can get frantic. Our soup is deeper than the sea. Our noodles stretch a mile. The bread is longer than a train.

It's sure to make you smile. We pile our peas up mountain high. One cookie hides the moon. We pour our iced tea into boats. We hope you'll visit soon. Onomatopoeia Camping Crack! Crack! The fire crackles under the stars. Sizzle! Sizzle! The water sizzles above the fire. Crunch! Crunch! The campers crunching on potato chips. Click! Clack! Click! Clack! The tent poles clicking and clacking together.

Rustle! Rustle! As we prepare our sleeping bags to go to sleep. Chirp! Chirp! The crickets say, good-night. Sensory Images Words that appeal to the five senses I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud BY WILLIAM WORDSWORTH I wandered lonely as a cloud That floats on high o'er vales and hills, When all at once I saw a crowd, A host, of golden daffodils; Beside the lake, beneath the trees, Fluttering and dancing in the breeze. Continuous as the stars that shine

And twinkle on the milky way, They stretched in never-ending line Along the margin of a bay: Ten thousand saw I at a glance, Tossing their heads in sprightly dance. Rhythm Most poems are written to be read aloud, and how they sound is as important as what they mean. Rhythm: the pattern of stressed and unstressed syllables in language. The beat that the poem follows Smelly People

Uncle Oswald smells of tobacco. Aunt Agatha smells of rope. Cousin Darren smells of airplane glue. Cousin Tracey smells of soap. My mom smells of garlic and cabbage. My dad smells of cups of tea. My baby sister smells of sick. and my brother of scabby knee. Our classroom smells of stinky socks. Our teacher smells of Old Spice. I wonder what I smell of? I'll just have a sniff... hmmm... quite nice Which poem has rhythm? First Train Passing The train makes a clickity-clack

noise on the track You can see ducks and geese from the window and they fly up when the train goes by I can see a big, heavy suitcase on the rack. It doesn't look very safe. The train is going into a tunnel and when it does, everything goes dark Second Train Passing Clickity-clack, clickity-clack

Ducklings and geese, fly from the track Big heavy case, rocks on the rack Tunnel ahead, everything's black Clickity-clack, quickity quack Clickity-clack, rickety-rack Rhyme Words that sound alike. Example: cat and hat My pig won't let me watch TV. It's totally unfair.

He watches anything he wants but doesn't ever share. I never get to watch cartoons or anything like that. He's busy watching farming shows. I should have got a cat. I should have got a goldfish or a guinea pig or goat. Instead, I've got this pig who's always hogging the remote. --Kenn Nesbitt THE CAT IN THE HAT Then our mother came in And she said to us two,

Did you have any fun? Tell me. What did you do? And Sally and I did not know what to say. Should we tell her The things that went on there that day? Well... what would YOU do If your mother asked you? Label the Rhyme scheme GREEN EGGS AND HAM Do you like green eggs and ham? I do not like them, Sam-I-am. I do not like green eggs and ham! Would you like them here or there?

I would not like them here or there. I would not like them anywhere. I do so like green eggs and ham! Thank you! Thank you, Sam-I-am! Mood The tone of a poem How does it make you feel? Happy, Scared, Sad etc.. What is the mood of this poem? Nothing is going right today, My friends are all out, so no one can play

For supper we had a ton of liver, When I didn't even want a sliver! My two brothers are in a fight, And dad's grumpy 'cause he's working the night. I just lost my new hat, And my brother lost his ball and bat. Everyone can't stand the heat, Mom's tired and needs to sleep, Because of my hat I'm feeling sorrow, Oh, I just can't wait for tomorrow! What is the mood of this poem? Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there wondering, fearing, Doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before;

But the silence was unbroken, and the darkness gave no token, And the only word there spoken was the whispered word, `Lenore!' This I whispered, and an echo murmured back the word, `Lenore!' Merely this and nothing more. By Edgar Allen Poe
