OK, since today is “Earth Day” and we just practiced couplets yesterday . . .
Today, let's write a Nature Color Poem ~ It's fun and made up of a series of couplets (depending on how long you want it - or even just one couplet if you choose to only do one color).
A “nature color poem” tells about the color of something in nature using rhyme.
Here are the guidelines:
~ It’s made up of couplets.
~ The first word in each couplet is the color of something in nature.
~ The two ending words in each couplet are the words that need to rhyme and both lines should have the same number of syllables or beats.
I’m really tired and out of ideas so my example is BEYOND lame, but I can’t wait to see what you come up with:
Yellow sunshine beckons me,
To come out so I can see.
Blue skies over my head,
I have nothing to dread.
Pink flowers are pretty to smell,
I have a cold, it’s hard to tell.
Green blades of grass seem to call me,
Oh, wait, I've got an allergy.
If you prefer, another poem that lends itself well to “National Earth Day” would be a haiku. Traditionally, they are brief, 17-syllable free verses. The first and third lines contain five syllables and the second line contains seven. Most Haikus are written about nature, making it another perfect poetry form for “Earth Day.”
So, Happy Earth Day and let’s get writing!! Cheers!!
