Hello everybody! I’ve learned about poetry now. These are the types of poems I know. By the way, NR means non- rhyming poems.
Haikus(NR). These have three lines. The 1st has 5 syllables, the 2nd 7 and the 3rd 5. Traditional haikus are about nature.
Limericks. These are poems where the 1st, 2nd, and 5th rhyme and the 3rd and 4th rhyme.
Concrete/shape poems. These are poems shaped like objects that also describe the object.
Acrostic poems(NR). These consist of a group of words that describe a word that is the beginning of each word. Or, the word that is made of the beginnings of the group of words that describe the main word. And that word is vertical.
Cinquains(NR). This is a group of 5 lines and 22 syllables. 1st, 2 syllables, 2nd 4 syllables, 3rd 6 syllables, 4th 8 syllables, 5th 2 syllables. The 1st line is a noun. The 2nd line describes the noun. The 3rd line is the action of the noun. The 4th line is the feelings of the noun or the feelings the noun brings. The 5th line is a synonym of the noun.
Sonnets(my favorite!). This is a type of poem with 14 lines which is split into 3 groups of 4 lines and 1 group of 2 lines. In each group of 4 lines the 1st and 3rd lines rhyme and the 2nd and 4th lines rhyme. The group of 2 lines both rhyme. They usually tell a story as they do when William Shakespeare wrote them.
So what do you think about poetry?
