In grade 4 you also do Poetry.
Poetry is a fun way of writing for me.
I usually like to rhyme,
Once I did it about time!
My favourite author is Shel Sileverstein,
Because he doesn’t usually rhyme,
But he is definitely funny!
Like a singing bunny!
I also like to write Haiku.
I like haiku because it is only 3 lines and it always gives a definition of you.
That is my poetry poem!
I hope you enjoyed my poetry poem! Now I am going to tell you more kinds of poetry that I like.
My favourite kind of poetry of all times is Free Verse. I like it because you can do whatever you want and there are no rules. I usually do Free Verse when I feel impatient or bored. I also really like writing poetry by just looking at a picture that gives you ideas to write about.
Some people think that poetry HAS to rhyme, but the truth is, it doesn’t at all! The only rule to make a piece of writing poetry is that it has to stay on 1 topic. Here is an example:
The hypnotizing bubbles,
Take turns competing,
To beat the water.
Although that was a Haiku it stayed on 1 topic and it didn’t rhyme! When you write poetry it doesn’t have to make sense it just has to make the reader play the movie in their mind.
Thanks for reading!
