  6. 6. Tricks!<br />One trick you can use is to think of things you love. This will help you brainstorm something you’d like to write about and can create a poem with.<br />It is important to realize the subject for the poem and how the words flow together<br />
  7. 7. How do I rhyme?<br />Figure out a rhyme scheme for your poem. For example : You could rhyme every other line, or a pair of lines, it’s your choice. <br />Pick out the key words you want to rhyme with. It is usually easier to pick words at the end of lines.<br /> Change the first letter of that word into a new letter, to try and find a word that rhymes. (ex: door – boor, coor, eoor, for, etc.)<br />4. Use other multi-letter words you know. (ex: Orange, most people think nothing rhymes with this but you could say, “door hinge” and it has the same affect.”<br />
  8. 8. What about those poems that don’t rhyme?<br />These poems can sometimes be even more difficult than poems that do rhyme. <br />For these, it is all about the flow of the words, or the rhythm. This is important because you want your poem to all fit together in a way that is pleasing to the ear.<br />
