Let's discuss poetry, With the theme of fantasy.
I am so sorry to be posting this so late! I got a bit distracted by life... OOPs!
Now that we have explored Poetic Devices and Rhyme and Meter it is time to take a look at some Poetry Forms. There are numerous Poetry Forms and in this class we will be learning five of them. I chose these because I think they are rather easy forms to learn and they often can be used to tell a story. This way we can delve into the Fantasy and Science Fiction genre.
This week's form is called a Quatrain.
A Quatrain is a poem consisting of four lines of verse with a specific rhyming scheme.
A few examples of a quatrain rhyming scheme are as follows:
#2) abba -- envelope rhyme
#4) aaba, bbcb, ccdc, dddd -- chain rhyme
Here are example of quatrains I have written...
"Frozen Great Lakes" by PandaPaws VetTech
"Piggy Poem" by PandaPaws VetTech
Write a Quatrain (any length) using one of the above rhyme schemes.
Incorporate the Poetic Devices you learned in Lesson One.
