Do you want to become a world-renowned poet some day? Or maybe you just want to try writing a poem to see how fun it is. Perhaps you’re just trying to write a poem for your English Homework. You probably just can’t find a type of poem that’s simple enough, but will leave a good impression. Well, your search has come to an end.
Hello there! Do you remember my previous post, Perky Poetry? http://thevioletblogger.weebly.com/blog/perky-poetry/
This post expands on it, showing you types of poems to write.
Here are some types of poems you can write. They are all super fun to write and easy so before you know it, you’ll have a masterpiece of a poem in front of you. So grab a pen and a paper, and get started!
To write this kind of poem, you have to line up the words like this.
Now, write a short sentence/phrase after it, a bit like this.
Disobedient at times, yet still devoted
Obstinate pet that loves to go outside
Good-natured Gentle Giant
See? Not hard at all, and it really is fun.
These simple Japanese poems have only 3 lines, the first line with five syllables, the second with seven, and the third with five again. Here’s an example.
The glowing sun sets
Behind the fluffy white clouds
As the moon rises
It may be very long, but haikus leave a good impression on the reader and they are easy to write.
These are some of the best poems to write. There are no restrictions or any guidelines to follow, you just let your imagination run away with you. Here’s an amazing example I found on the Internet.
Disappointments by Vivian Gilbert Zabel
Every life has a room
Where memories are stored:
A box of special occasions here,
Shelves of shared laughter there.
But back in the shadows
Lurks a trunk locked tight,
Not to be opened and searched.
