poetic styles of writing

Diffrent ways to write in poetry.

Did you know that the haiku is the most famouse non-rhyming pome and that it's origins in Japan. And that it is charactersed for it's structure of lines. Most of these types of pomes are based of the natural world. Modden-day haiku is written with a patten of three lines of five, seven and five syllables.

Shape poetry is an intersting way of showing your ideas of an object or your emotians. Lets say you were going to wirte about a Christmas tree you would make a pome and then write it in the shape of a Christmas tree. E.g--- Look over to the image.

A sonnet is a lyric pome and many belive that it's origins in Italy and comes from the Italian word sonetto whice means "little song". And did you know that the most famouse sonnets were written by William Shakkespeare and Englidh playwritter. The structure for a sonnet has come from many other lyrical poectic forms. The sonnet follows a specific rhyme of ABAB CDCD EFEF GG. As you have noticed the last two lines are a rhyming couplet. E.g. Look to the image.

Ballads are pomes that tell a story. But then again most pomes tell a story in one form or another. But did you know that a ballad is diffrent as it is a folk tale that tells you the culture, music and history of a certain place. They are written to be sung aloud. E.g. The song "Georgie" whice is an English Folk Ballad.

A free verse is one of the most intersting types of poetry but has very little to do with rhyme and struture, but with more expression and ideas. It can be either a rhyme or it dosen't have to be. It sometimes follows a patten but not usally. That is why it is called a 'free verse'.
