    • HAIKU
    Snowflakes fall softly And form a beautiful world, A velvet blanket.
    There once was a lady in Spain Who said she had nothing to gain. She gave it a try, And said she could fly. But crashed when she flew in the rain .
  • 15. STYLES OF POETRY Rhyme and Rhythm Whose woods these are I think I know. His house is in the village though; He will not see me stopping here To watch his woods fill up with snow. My little horse must think it queer To stop without a farmhouse near Between the woods and frozen lake The darkest evening of the year. He gives his harness bells a shake. To ask if there is some mistake. The only other sound’s the sweep Of easy wind and downy flake. The woods are lovely, dark, and deep But I have promises to keep, And miles to go before I sleep, And miles to go before I sleep. Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening By Robert Frost
    • Five Sense Poem
    Success is red. It sounds like a vacant room. It feels like a pat on the back. It smells like flowers in the spring. It tastes as sweet as a mother’s kiss.
    A raindrop dives from a cloud, patters on a roof, splashes into a puddle, bathes a car, nourishes a garden, slides down a rain barrel, hangs from a clothes line, perches on a flower petal, glistens like a diamond, and dies in the Sun.
