Today we began writing…or we were supposed to! Many of you still needed time for your journals. Still, I gave out your Five Poems One Week assignment. Please read the individual instructions carefully–each poem has its own specific requirements.
To help with Poem #1, here is sample imitation poem, including the original. It should help you get an idea of what you need to do with your imitation poem.
To help with Poem #4, here is Poetry Form Sheet. You may choose any of these forms. Of them, I would say that the Acrostic or the Chaism are probably the most straightforward. The sonnet or the villanelle are the most difficult.
