WHO WANTS TO BE A POET?

 

Let's do some writing then:  

 

Write 5 sentences using 4 iambic feet per line (ie tetrameter):

Iambic means one light beat followed by one heavy one - ie i AM i AM

 

I'll start you off:

 

I AM a VERy FUNny MAN

There WAS a GIRL called GOLDiLOCKS

MY BROTHer's HAIR is SHORT and BLACK.

My DOG has GOT a CURly TAIL.

I'd LOVE to WRITE a POEM for YOU.

 

Clap to the beats and write five sentences yourself.  You are now writing poetry.  Congratulations.

 

As for me:  I'm OFF to MEET a FRIEND for LUNCH

Then:          and THEN I'll WRITE a POEM for YOU.
