Day #22: Abecedarian

DP #37: Dear Poet #5

Today, we’re going to watch and listen to an eminent American poet recite original poetry. Be prepared to write down your reactions after listening, as well as discuss.

You’ll be listening to eight poets over the course of the next two weeks and writing a letter to one of them.

 

Today, you’re going to try your hand at writing an Abecedarian poem.  These poems use the alphabet to start every line.  Here’s one I wrote.  

Once you craft one you like, transfer it into your poem book.

Happy writing!
