It’s a relief to not have to write anymore poems for now. I would always be stressed if the rhythm was off or finding the right wording so I would have an easier time rhyming at the end of each verse. They way that I look at poetry hasn’t changed too much since the beginning of this lesson. Though is do enjoying reading them, it can be a pain to analyze some of the poems that are given. When given the requirements for our poems, it gave me a whole new respect for many of theses poets. Some of the rhyme and rhythm within these poems are so complex that I don’t understand why someone would put that stress upon themselves but they probably quite enjoy writing these complex works of literature. The way I approached the second poem that was different from my first poem was that I chose a topic that was easier for me to put into words. The first poem I struggled with the topic I choose and how I wanted the layout to set within the poem, and it just turned out terrible. The second time I chose a topic that was fresh in my mind that I was quite excited about, and it became a lot quicker to come up with ideas for the layout. And that topic was, of course, the Christmas season. For some reason when Christmas comes around it feels like this mood of warmth and comfort sets in even though I’m not fond of the shorter, darker days. It perks me up and distracts me from day-to-day stresses. I’m not sure why but it does. Anyways, I think imagery is an amazing thing to pair with poetry. It can help the reader visualize and interpret what is happening within the text or give them an idea of what they can comes up with themselves. I can help paint the story if the reader is struggling to find the deeper meaning within the poem itself. Another interesting thing would be to see illustrations from different artists to see how they have interpreted the work of poetry themselves.
