Let your creative juices flow! Have fun and write your own two poem
Let your creative juices flow! Have fun and write your own two poem:
- Write a limerick The limerick is always light and humorous. Its usual form consists of ﬁve predominantly anapestic lines rhyming aabba; lines 1, 2, and 5contain three feet, while lines 3 and 4 contain two. Limericks have delighted everyone from schoolchildren to sophisticated adults, and they range in subject matter from the simply innocent and silly to the satiric or obscene. The sexual humor helps to explain why so many limericks are written anonymously. Here is one that is anonymous but more concerned with physics than physiology. (About 25 words)
- Write a haiku Another brief ﬁxed poetic form, borrowed from the Japanese, is the haiku. A haiku is usually described as consisting of seventeen syllables organized into three unrhymed lines of ﬁve, seven, and ﬁve syllables. Owing to language difference, however, English translations of haiku are often only approximated, because a Japanese haiku exists in time (Japanese syllables have duration). The number of syllables in our sense is not as signiﬁcant as the duration in Japanese. These poems typically present an intense emotion or a vivid image of nature, which, in the Japanese, are also designed to lead to a spiritual insight. (About 12 words)
