DAY 15 ~ 2015 "Grammar Poem" for "30 Poems in 30 Days" #NationalPoetryMonth



This type of poem is simple but precise as it reinforces different aspects of grammar. This grammar poetry form is five lines long. The specifics are as follows:

Directions:
Line 1. Write a noun for the subject (THIS serves as your TITLE as well)
Line 2. Write two adjectives joined by and to describe this noun
Line 3. Write a verb and an adverb to describe this noun in action
Line 4. Start it with like or as followed by a comparison
Line 5. Start it with if only followed by a wish

Remember: Most adverbs tell you how, where, or when something is done and MANY (but certainly not all) adverbs end in “ly.” [quickly, carefully, early, happily, etc.] In other words, they describe the manner, place, or time of an action. In fact, here’s link about adverbs if you are unsure. Some may surprise you: ADVERBS

EXAMPLES:

Some of my “grammar poems”

Writer's block
Infuriating and debilitating
Slowing me down temporarily
Like grease clogging up a drain
If only I had a very large plunger!

My kitty
Entertaining and curious
Laying on my keyboard lazily
Like the Queen of Sheba
If only she would nap someplace else

My Savior, Jesus Christ
Flawless and loving
Atoning selflessly
Like the perfect son of God
If only I can be found worthy

Here's mine!

Spring in Utah
Crazy and confusing
Winds blowing and howling gustily
Like an engine of an airplane
If only it were summer!

Sorry mine is a day late

My baby
sweet and silly
quickly crawling everywhere
like an excited puppy
If only she didn't get into everything.

My Holland
Colorful and Beautiful
Blooming in the soil brightly
Like a patchwork quilt
If only I could visit there…someday
