Poetic Form: I let it fall, my heart, And as it fell you rose to claim it It was dark and I was over Until you kissed my lips and you saved me My hands, they're strong But my knees were far too weak, To stand in your arms Without falling to your feet But there's a side to you

That I never knew, never knew. All the things you'd say They were never true, never true, And the games you play You would always win, always win.

In some poems, the lines are arranged into groups, called stanzas. Each stanza helps to convey a poems overall message. The end of a stanza signifies the end of one thought. For example: But there's a side to you That I never knew, never knew. All the things you'd say They were never true, never true, And the games you play You would always win, always win. How is a stanza like a paragraph in an essay? Why is it important that all of these lines read together? What is the main idea or overall message

of this stanza? Poetic Form: Traditional Vs. Free Some poems have Verse traditional, or structured forms. Traditional poems follow fixed rules; for instance, they might have a certain number of lines or a repeating pattern of rhythm or rhyme. Poems that do not follow set rules are

called free verse. Poetic Form: Free The following poemVerse Street Corner Flight by Norma Flores is written in free verse. Because it has no regular pattern of rhythm or rhyme, the poem sounds like everyday speech. From this side of their concrete barrio two small boys hold fat white pigeons

trapped in their trembling hands. Then gently, not disturbing their powers of flight, release them Into the air. Types of Poems There are many different types of poems, but for this unit we will be studying the following: -Narrative (concentrating on historical context) -Lyric

Thou art more lovely and more temperate: Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May, And summer's lease hath all too short a date: Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines, And often is his gold complexion dimm'd; And every fair from fair sometime declines, By chance, or nature's changing course, untrimm'd; But thy eternal summer shall not fade Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow'st; Nor shall Death brag thou wander'st in his shade,

When in eternal lines to time thou grow'st; So long as men can breathe or eyes can see, So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.

Thou art more lovely and more temperate: You are more lovely and more constant: Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May, Rough winds shake the beloved buds of May And summer's lease hath all too short a date: And summer is far too short: Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines, At times the sun is too hot, And often is his gold complexion dimm'd; Or often goes behind the clouds;

And every fair from fair sometime declines, And everything beautiful sometime will lose its beauty, By chance, or nature's changing course, untrimm'd; By misfortune or by nature's planned out course. But thy eternal summer shall not fade But your youth shall not fade, Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow'st; Nor will you lose the beauty that you possess; Nor shall Death brag thou wander'st in his shade, Nor will death claim you for his own, When in eternal lines to time thou grow'st; Because in my eternal verse you will live forever.
