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.
