    Practice.1- Ballad Poetry!

    Poetry, however, is too creative and exciting to be effectively defined in such a factual way. Poems come from our real world experiences.
    Vocabulary:

    1. Stanzas: Groups of lines; is a division in a poem named for the number of lines it contains.
    2. Verses: Is a name for a line of traditional poetry written in meter.
    3. Ballads: Is a poem which tells a story.
    4. Quatrains: Four-line stanza.

    We will begin our poetry section with Ballads! We will write the first four verses, a quatrain, of a ballad as practice.

    Example.

    Ballad of Birmingham

    Mother dear, may I go downtown
    Instead of out to play,
    And march the streets of Birmingham
    In a Freedom March today?

    Unsung Hero

    A wounded warrior walks barefooted
    In the path that seemed to be an endless maze
    Holding unto his chest, his beloved mace
    His face is marked by absolute grimace.


    Thank you very much,Reese for this wonderful signature ^_^

    An Endless Rain

    I stand by in the clouds.
    As heavy thunder rolls in,
    As misty rain falls in shrouds,
    Hiding the sunlight which is now put to an end.

    Behind the man i see
    are two golden gates of light
    as time immobilizes
    they open and let me enter

    Work

    Living in an endless hell,
    He seeks to find what lies beyond.
    Where he may find his own true path,
    Regretfully, his journey is solitary.

    Pending

    Awaiting an awakening
    In the dread of his life
    Looking for more
    And avoiding his strife
