I’m excited that we are not going to be talking about poetry anymore because it’s boring and extremely hard to write because you have to think a lot about different things. My perception hasn’t really changed except for that fact that I can’t write poetry to save my life. Some people weren’t born to write poetry and I seem to be one of those people. Writing poetry with requirements was harder then I thought it would be because I actually have to think about how it should be written and how to make it not sound or look dumb. Multiple things from my first poem to writing my second poem such as, the topic and the things I said in it. The first poem made me think harder because I didn’t really know how to shape it into a good poem. Also, when writing the second poem it was easier to rhyme words together and get a good rhythm out of it. My second poem was about someone I don’t like at all. They’re just a rude and angry person so I took all my anger and put it into a poem about how they irritate me and how much I dislike them.
I don’t even know if my poem would be more meaningful if it had visuals because you could honestly visualize most of things in your head if you really wanted too. I feel like it was written so you could visualize it, but if it was put into a visual type of thing I would have things like the different animals, fire, and some clowns in it. It could help people understand the true meaning and also interpret the poem better with images. Also, adding imagery to poems can help kids become interested in poems because they might not know what it means, but the pictures could help them. They could also add meaning to the way the poem sounds by how the narrator’s voice sounds or if it’s a male or female. Also, by the how fast or slow the person speaks and how the rhythm sounds.
