Poetry

The next few weeks we will be exploring poetry.  Take a look at the links below and read as many poems as you can this week.  In your writing notebook write down what you notice about the poems you read.  Do they have rhythm, alliteration, rhyming, onomatopoeia, personification, similes or metaphors? Are the poems narratives, lyrical, funny or free verse?
