We were writing poems last week in class. For this introduction to poems this year I tried to stress three main aspects of poetry: poems look like poems, poems are usually about things for which you feel strongly, and there are very few rules with poetry. What do you think? Are those three the most important aspects, or would you stress other aspects of poetry?
Also, here’s my personal contribution to the poems that were written in class last week.
by Mrs. T.G.
You are bored?
How can you say you are bored?
You mean you have NOTHING to do?
Are you so DULL that you can’t even thing of ONE thing to do?
Not ONE thing?
Not one book to read?
Not one sentence to write?
Not one science experiment to try?
Not one puzzle to make or solve?
Not one story to imagine?
You should not say you are bored,
You should say you are boring.
