What is Poetry?

 

Poetry

What is poetry?

Is it the topic no one wants to learn?

Is it the topic that every student dreads?

Poetry

What is poetry?

Is it love and joy?

Is it life and despair?

Poetry

What is poetry?

Poetry is the songs that we never get to sing

Poetry tells much more than a novel or a short story

Poetry

Who is poetry?

Is it the Renaissance?

Is it the European?

Poetry

Who is poetry?

Poetry is the men and women who see the world as it is

Poetry are those who knew the pains and pleasures

Poetry

Who is poetry?

Poetry is Shakespeare, William Blake, and Edgar Allan Poe

Poetry is Dickinson, Rossetti, and Sappho

Poetry

What do we learn?

Do we learn how to rhyme?

Do we learn how to create a mental picture?

Poetry

What do we learn?

We learn to open our eyes to new ideas

We learn to find the beauty, even in the darkness

Poetry

Poetry is the beauty in the world

The beauty that is overlooked every day

The everyday things that we accept without question

Poetry

With poetry, we learn

We learn that it is okay to be ourselves

We learn about ourselves

Poetry

Personalized

Open

Empathetic

Truthful

Relatable

You

 

 

This poem is about: 
Our world
