Poetry Stories Issue Date: 11-29-2015

Cool Spots imageThe Favorite Poem Project, www.favoritepoem.org, is a video collection of Americans reciting beloved poems. John Doherty shares Walt Whitman’s “Song of Myself” and why he feels a connection to the words. He says poetry is a challenge: At first a poem may seem like just a group of words, but then its meaning becomes clear. Meet Yina Liang, a high school student from Georgia, who shares Emily Dickinson’s poem “I’m Nobody! Who are you?” She talks about the pressures young people face with school, family and friendships. Can you relate to this? Maybe you’ll be inspired to love poetry, too.

Write a Sonnet Issue Date: 09-07-2014

Cool Spots imageHave you ever been assigned the task of writing a poem for a class at school? Poetry Through the Ages, webexhibits.org/poetry, explores the various kinds of verse. Writing poems may seem challenging at first, but if you study the basic elements of the form, it will be easier to understand. A good place to start is Learn About Poetic Forms and Create Your Own Poetry. William Shakespeare made sonnets famous by including them in some of his plays, at least one of which you will probably read at some point in school. Did you know that song lyrics and advertising are modern forms of poetry?
