SIMPLY WRITE A POEM

)))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))
COUPLETS

A couplet poem is simply composed of two-line stanzas that rhyme. Although couplets seem very, well, simple, they can be disappointing or uninteresting without some planning.

Thinking of your poem as a little story or a description of an activity can be a way of adding interest. For example, here is a simple couplet. 

Music

Voice of instruments fill the air
Sounds of music everywhere.

Using the above as a guide, follow these simple steps to write a couplet poem:

{1} Select a subject (music)

{2} Write a first line about the subject (Voice of instruments fill the air)

{3} List words that rhyme with the last word in the line. bear, care, dare, chair, everywhere,________, _________, _________,

{4) Write a second line ending with a rhyming word from your list (Sounds of music everywhere.)

{5} Follow these same steps over and over to write other couplets about your topic. 

 The violins are singing
 And the tambourines are ringing.

And that is how to simply write a poem.         

Write as many couplets as you need to tell your story!

HERE IS A SIMPLE COUPLET POEM. NOTICE HOW THE TWO LINES ARE MADE TO RHYME WITHIN A FOUR LINE FORMAT.

XII
BY EMILY DICKINSON


I asked no other thing.
No other was denied.

I offered Being for it;
The mighty merchant smiled.
_______________________________________________first line
Brazil? He twirled a button,
Without a glance my way;

"But madam, is there nothing else
That we can show to-day?"
______________________________________________second line
