Poetry by Lily junge

Poetry is like a story being told through rhymes and stanzas, and sometimes not even those! They don't have to rhyme or be broken up to be a poem. A poem expresses feelings through complicated words and rhythm. Sometimes poetry can be silly and funny, but also serious and sophisticated. There are many different types of poems, like different genres of books. There are silly poems, serious poems, love poems, calming poems, cute poems, and many more!

Poetry is...

creative, rhythmic, lovely, charming, pretty, inventive, amusing, sweet, colorful

Poetry is not...

nonrhythmic, rappy, anything prose,

What can poetry be used for?

Poetry can be used to calm a person who is sad or angry. Poetry can make a person feel gleeful. It can be used to tell a story or to display a lesson. Poetry can show affection or present feeling to another person.

My favorite poems

Potato Love- Anonymous

Roses aren't good symbols of love

I mean roses only last a few weeks.

And that's only if you put them in water

and they really only exist to be pretty.

So that's like saying,

my love for you is transitory

and based solely on appearance.

But a potato!

Potatoes last forever.

In fact, not only will they not rot,

they actually grow stuff if you just leave them.

That part alone makes them a good symbol.

But there's more!

There are so many ways to enjoy a potato.

You can even make a battery with it!

That's like saying,

I have many ways in which I show my love for you.

And potatoes may be ugly,

but they're still awesome!

So that's like saying,

it doesn't matter at all what you look like,

I'll still love you

Snowball- Shel Silverstein

I made myself a snowball

As perfect as could be.

I thought I’d keep it as a pet

And let it sleep with me.

I made it some pajamas

And a pillow for its head.

Then last night it ran away,

But first—it wet the bed.

I like these poems because they are silly and funny, but they also sort-of teach a lesson

Photos that represent my feelings towards poetry

Adjectives that describe poetry are...
