Arushi K. // INTRODUCTION TO WRITING POETRY

Writing poems need not be hard,

When you put to it your heart.

Think about what you want to write,

Be it food, friends or true love’s might.

Search for different words that rhyme,

To make your poem smooth and sublime.

If each line has syllables five,

An iambic pentameter comes alive.

Read masters from far and near,

Frost, Wordsworth and Shakespeare.

New ideas you will get,

To write a poem now you’re all set.
