    Hahahah, okay. It's only because, well, you get what I mean, don't you? The sentences were kind of chopped up and... well, not continuous. That's why I thought you were trying to make it look like a poem.

    Re: reading poetry

    I'm not trying to incriminate anyone here. I sincerely hope that this wouldn't sound immature or mean, because I really don't know anything about these kind of things because I am a kid.





    I'm a bookworm myself. I really do like poetry and I appreciate it in a way that feels good to me. I don't think there is a 'strategy' for appreciating a poem, or anything else for that matter. I think it's and inborne thing, that humans can choose wether or not to appreciate something. You can't force yourself someone else to appreciate something that doesn't fit. It's a human nature; reject anything that doesn't fit- like, you can't stick my skin on someone else. But even though I slightly disagree with the strategies on reading a poem, I find it very accurate and also very amusing.

    What Is a Poem?
    ---------------
    A poem is a concise verbal snapshot of a poet's thoughts.
    Poems work through the images they paint, the sounds they create,
    and the ideas they communicate.

    You need to read a poem more than once--
    and at least one time out loud, so you can hear the sounds and rhythms.
    Close your eyes and try to see the pictures painted by the words.
    Try to share the poet's feelings and perception.
    Then ask yourself,"What does this poem say to me?"

    The Elements of a Poem
    -----------------------
    Poets combine sounds, image, and shapes
    to make a unique creation in words that
    communicate with you, the reader.

    The Music of Poetry: Its Sounds Poetry
    needs to be aloud. As you read, listen
    for words that rhyme and for a rhythm you
    can tap your fingers to, like music. Listen
    for words that imitate sounds you hear around you in real life.
    And listen for letter
    sounds that repeat.
    All these sounds add to the effect of the poem.

    The Images of Poetry: Its Pictures As you
    read poetry,
    let the poet's words paint pictures in your mind.
    Poets use sensorys
    images to appeal to sighy, hearing, taste,
    smell, and touch.
    Poets aften use comparisons that give you new ways of looking at
    familiar things.

    How Structuer of Poetry: Its shape Pay
    attention to how the poet has placed the
    words on the page.
    A new stanza or verse
    may signal a change of focus or of tone.
    The poet may repeat lines or words to emphasize
    important ideas.

    How to Read a Poem
    ------------------------
    Think of reading a poem as having a conversation with the poet.
    The poet is saying
    what's on his or her mind and you're listening.
    But don't just sit there---get involved!
    Ask questions.
    Make comments.
    Express your feelings.
    Give your opinions.
    Share your experiences.
    You can record your side of the conversation in your Response Journal.


    I'll tell some strategies for reading poetry later on
    Did you come up with this? Or did you copy and paste it from somewhere?
    Either way its quite insightful. Im not sure if I think there is a STANDARD on how to read a poem, or how a poem should be written (like what it should consist of).
    I think poetry has no leash, and shouldn't be put in box at all.
    Afterall, How can you box expression?

    With that said, I do believe in a good verses bad poem. I know there IS a such thing as bad poetry. But that depends on the readers opinion.

    Anyway, kudos on the tips. I thought they were very handy guidelines. I printed them and will use them as a reference when I read peoples poetry!
    Thanx for taking the time to share it!

    Re: reading poetry

    My favorite poems were always limericks! Here is on I just made up

    There once was a horse named Steve

    and dashing was his pet peeve.

    When along came his master

    who made a disaster

    Because he had tricks up his sleeve!





    But are you guys into serious poems?
    More than bored; Sad. More than sad; Unhappy. More than unhappy; Ill. More than ill; Alone in the world. More than alone in the world; In Exile. More than in exile; Dead. More than dead;forgotten.......

    Re: reading poetry

    i think poems DO have a strategy but with so many
    different aspects no 2 strategies are alike though the
    strategies you talk about posting nest week will be one
    of many ways to show how poems are done.

    my self my only strategy is that i i have to have it in my head
    you know like a move or TV show then i add music to it that's
    where the words come from for me the music is the poem itself
    that i am just adding to something that was made already in my
    head , the typical strategy would be to have a place where you
    can think and not be interrupted.

    but that's just one of many strategies.
    I'll be the one to protect you from your enemies and all your demons
    I'll be the one to protect you from a will to survive and a voice of reason
    I'll be the one to protect you from your enemies and your choices son
    They're one in the same, I must isolate you...
    Isolate and save you from yourself
