DP #36: Catharsis
You’ve just had a three-day weekend. Take five minutes to write about how you spent it! 🙂
This week’s focus in on highly structured poetry. To help you write one, we’re going to discuss how rhythm, meter, and rhyme affect a poem.
Now, try your hand at writing a highly structured poem called a limerick.
The general structure is this:
5 lines (1st, 2nd, and 5th are longer, 3rd and 4th are shorter)
Ryhme Scheme: aabba
Often humorous and bawdy (but don’t have to be)
Here’s one I wrote.
It’s not easy. Take a stab at it. If you like it, post it on your blog!
