OK, let’s just have some fun today – did you know there are all kinds of interactive poem generators out there? Well, there are – some silly, some helpful, all surprising. So, I entered some random parts of speech, etc. as outlined below and then I clicked on “generate my poem” and voila’ ~ I got that CRAZY poem below ~ but you can try any number of poetry generators – you can find the links to several of them below and see what comes up – this is a fun one to do with kids. Enjoy and if you come up with one you like – share away!! Cheers!!
https://www.poem-generator.org.uk/ ~ 9 poetry forms available
http://oakdome.com/k5/lesson-plans/word/i-am-poem.php ~ 11 poetry form generators can be found in the left-hand column (if you don’t see them, then click on the bar that says “poem generators”).
I used the "quick poem" generator from the second link on the list. The below poem is the result. OH, MY HECK! Silly. You might need to tweak it a bit in order to make sense. Whatever works for ya'
Why not try several different poem generators from the list above?
Here is my poem:
(I was thinking of my 2-year-old grandson when I filled in the blanks. The photo is one I took one day after he was playing at our house and I saw he left that dinosaur with his nose in the bookshelf. Thought it was so cute).
"The Plastic Toy Dinasour"
Whose dinosaur is that? I think I know.
Its owner is quite happy though.
Full of joy like a vivid rainbow,
I watch him laugh. I cry hello.
He gives his dinosaur a shake,
And laughs until his belly aches.
The only other sound's the break,
Of distant waves and birds awake.
The dinosaur's a plastic toy, and neat,
But he has promises to keep,
After cake and lots of sleep.
Sweet dreams come to him cheap.
He rises from his gentle bed,
With thoughts of kittens in his head,
He eats his jam with lots of bread.
Ready for the day ahead.
With thanks to the poet, Robert Frost, for the underlying structure.
